Elegant Kitchen Cupboard Arrangement

To achieve a uniform and elegant look in even the most modest of kitchen cupboards, clean and fill containers recycled from products you use regularly, as well as glass jars purchased from health stores, which usually cost a couple of dollars each. The red-lidded glasses are by Luminarc of France. The gold-lidded jars are from Buen Día instant coffee.
