Pantry Organization – DIY Leather Labels

Happy 2017 friends! We enjoyed soaking up time with family & friends over the last couple weeks and are slowly easing our way back here to blog world! We can’t believe it’s already a new year! We love the fresh start feeling that comes with a new year and have slowly been taking down the signs of Christmas in our homes and getting spaces re-organized. Caitlin recently moved into the house she’s sharing with her cousin (that they’ve spent the last 6 months renovating – we can’t wait to share the space with you over the next few months!!) and has been working on the final touches – like getting the pantry and kitchen shelves organized! We picked up some baskets at Michaels to store some pantry goods, and added some simple leather labels to keep things a little more organized & neat! These leather labels are an easy, simple way to upgrade storage baskets and help keep you even more organized!Pantry Organization - DIY Leather Labels @themerrythought @michaelsstoresPantry Organization - DIY Leather Labels @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
