Finally, the last installment of my pantry makeover. It didn’t take me this long to complete – REALLY! I promise, I just took a break from blogging and am now getting back into the swing of things.
I am excited to show you the finished product. To review, I emptied, sorted, purged, cleaned, painted and decorated. This is what it looks like.
Next, I contained everything in my new-found storage and assigned homes for each type of item. Now I am ready to put it all back.
I love these cookie jars. They will work will for my “snack loving” family. The bread basket on the lower shelf was an old faithful (I love!) and the cereal boxes sit on their sides to fit on the shelves.
These tall glass containers were a find. I had one or two, but found more matching containers at a Salvation Army store. They take advantage of the extra space high up in the pantry, on the top shelf. I am too short to reach much higher, so these store food more vertically and they look pretty too.
I purchased the canning jars because they fit so perfectly on the shelves – no wasted space! I also hung on to the rice tin. A little bit of retro makes the space more interesting than just having all the same thing.
The final product! All done. I very happy with my new/old pantry. Everyone noticed – someone even left me a note inside the pantry one day, saying how nice it looked.
What space you would like to focus on in your home? What could you do with the space? How could you organize it to make it more useful and beautiful?
