Collecting: A peek inside my drawers

Vintage utensils are one
of my collecting "categories".

They're fun and cheap and useful. But you can quickly end up with unweildly drawers full of them. If you can even get the drawer open, you have to dig through bottle openers and melon ballers to find that perfect cheese knife.
I generally rely on vintage cutlery holders to corral everything, but this metal cabinet puts them to shame. The long narrow slots that formerly housed metal springs are perfect for organizing utensils.
Makes it super easy to select
just the right fork or spoon for the job.
Each implement in it's own little home.
So happy.

This gem lives on my dining room sideboard,
keeping everything handy for eating and entertaining.
