Pantry Redo

My favorite luxury in my home is my larger than most pantry. I have never had the best system of organizing the items in here. In fact, there are many things in there that should probably not be in there! Take a look at my shameful "before pictures"

Over several weeks every time I went to Ross' and Walmart I would buy containers that I wanted to use in helping me organize my mess. I took everything out of the pantry . This took more time than I want to confess. I had stuff in the dining room, breakfast room and kitchen. We looked like hoarders! How did I get all of this in that small room???

I painted the sheetrock and may go back and paint the backboards or put decorative paper on it. I am loving the gold paint so much that I am contemplating putting it in my living room. I am really enjoying my pantry and we are taking bets on how long it will stay that way.

  1. you have lots of gadgets!!! LOOKS FAB!!! You were not kidding!!! I believe you now!! :) so glad the trash bin is no longer in there. :) LOVE THE COLOR!!!! LOVE THE cookbook section!!! now come on over and help me! seriously though, you inspired me to clean out my freezer. ;-D

  2. Congrats on organizing! Doesn't it feel wonderful? It looks great--I love the colors as well!

  3. Wow thats a HUGE pantry! They are hard to organize...our last home had a big pantry and it was so hard to keep it neat. Now I just have a large cabinet and it seems to stay neater somehow-- I LOVE the glass jars and how you put all your cookbooks in there. Great job!
