As some of you know, I really enjoy revamping things in my house and making them more efficient. This project was WAY overdue. Honestly, I wasn't really sure what to do with my pantry because it's pretty tiny. So after some research and Pinterest inspiration, I came up with this. Mind you if I could be a contractor, I would probably blow the back wall into my other closet to create more space, however, I am not a contractor, therefore, I had to do something more realistic. (and more budget friendly) :)
PS Scroll all the way to the bottom. I've linked all of the items for you guys so that you can find them easily.
So the baskets you see on the floor were actually part of a shelf from IKEA that Ryan broke. :( It was time to get my hands on this pantry.
I don't like to have too many items in my pantry, that is why I buy enough pantry items for two weeks so that I don't have items sitting there for months. (unless they're staple items)
I added slanted shelves at the bottom which are actually shoe racks. I dropped down my storage boxes to the lower shelves. I usually store my potatoes, onions, and some bagged chips in those boxes. This freed up one shelf in the middle and gave me more space to store other items.
I was able to attach two storage pieces on both sides. I am using one for baby food items and the other one for my boxed baking and storage items. By the way I've blogged about reusing our coffee creamer bottles and they work wonders for storage.
Even it is not an ideal pantry, these few steps really helped me create more space and made it more efficient. Let me know what you guys think by commenting below! :)
