Newly Painted And Reorganized Pantry

28 January 2011

Newly Painted And Reorganized Pantry
contributed by Counting It All Joy

I was very inspired by the House of Smiths pantry redo, so I decided to tackle my own. I did not have very much money to spend so I tried to use as much stuff as I could that I already had. First I took everything out! My husband was really excited about that part...

Here are some before pics ...

Pretty much a typical pantry with a ton of food and not a ton of organization. Once I got everything out, I cleaned the shelves and then painted the walls a really pretty greenish gray.

While it was drying, the hardest part for me, was trying to figure out the most logical place and groupings to go back in. I got rid of the stuff that I NEVER use and relocated it to the laundry room. This allowed me to get rid of the over the door hanger and a lot of the appliances. I went to goodwill and got like 5 baskets for 17$ and then spray painted most white. This lets you put the not so pretty stuff inside so you just see the pretty basket. I really tried to put the things that we use the most at eye level and then the things we do not at the top or at the bottom. I did take all of my cereal out of the boxes and used the bags only. It makes it look a lot cleaner. After I got everything in and where I wanted it I printed some lables on the computer. I would of LOVED to use vinyl, however I did not have the patience or the money... so I came up with these. And here is the final product.... I love it!!!

You have done a beautiful job. Love the paint and the baskets :)I hope you enjoy the organization every time you have to go in there.

Your pantry looks great!! I love the color you chose to paint the walls. Baskets are a great way to organize! I pick them up at yard sales when I see them.

Love it! I actually opened our pantry today and thought "I should tackle this organization project this weekend" So funny to come across your blog tonight. You've inspired me to do just that now. Hopefully come Monday our pantry will look as great as yours!

Love the basket idea! My pantry is a nightmare... I need to do the same thing!

Looks awesome! I really think I need to do this to my pantry:) I love how you used the baskets to organize and then labeled them; such a great idea.

Great Job! Having shelves that are not wire racks can make or break a pantry. I love the rack that holds the canned goods and how big the labels are!

Looks great! I recently did my pantry too but I live in an older home so I don't have nearly as much space as I'd like to. :) Thanks for sharing!


Here's my pantry makeover: (http://www.askannamoseley.com/2011/01/reader-question-pantry-and-linen-closet.html)

It looks fantastic!! I wish that I had a place for a nice pantry. We have a LOT of cabinet space tho, so that really helps. I'm working on organizing it better tho. :-)
