I just finished my Kitchen Pantry makeover!
Thanks to Shelley from
who INSPIRED all of us to decorate a space that most of us would just plain forget about, who would have thought?
Genius I tell you! 🙂
Here is the timeline of my Kitchen Pantry,
from disaster to the presently clean and organized Pantry!
Here is what I started with…
The pantry went from this
Don’t JUDGE me,
2010 was a bit of a CRAZY year for me 🙂
So Clean and White!!
But then, my counters looked like this…
We should play a game, I spy the mold of a brain…Do you see it??
Yep, left over from Halloween.
Again…no judging here 🙂
After a paint job to the pantry and a trip to IKEA for some organization tools,
we were ready to put everything back inside!
Along the journey of organizing everything to better meet our needs, I came up with some great tips.
I searched and searched for those darn clips that keep cereal and potato chips fresh. I don’t know if I was looking in the wrong section but I eventually gave up.
But then I had an idea…clothespins!
They work sooo awesomely and for a fraction of the price!
Spice jars – I LOVE these!!!
These are the PERFECT size for a teaspoon,
YAY..I will never have a mess again and resort to measuring my spices over the sink ever again!
I picked these glass containers at IKEA!
I labeled the jars and then typed up a cheat sheet that I taped on the side wall of the pantry with the coordinating number and spice.
This was my Favorite addition to the pantry!
I already owned these containers ( purchased at Walmart)
They now house the Instant Breakfast and Oatmeal
And Last, The GRAND REVEAL!!!
Now.. comes the tricky part of keeping it organized 🙂
