This is how I was living! (sorry for the poor photo quality but you get the picture, right!)
Oh I am so embarrased to show this to you! It was awful and I didn't mess it up to make it look worse... this is truly how our pantry functioned. Wow... that's humbling. :)
After a coat of paint on the wall and shelves and the addition of the canisters and other organization stuff I'd been collecting over a few months... here it is today!!!
And these awesome lazy susans built by my handsome helper. Seriously... these are awesome and he worked VERY hard on them!
My pantry now functions and looks 100x better!
I got these shelves from Wallyworld to store some of the "what do I do with these?" items.
And these canisters keep our snacky foods
And this basket stolen from the playroom keeps the paper goods that just were cluttered up on top of the shelves before.
And remember when I showed you the kitchen cabinet makeover? I told you I'd moved the kids crafty stuff to the pantry. Here's their corner. I got these drawers to hold coloring books, stickers, markers, paints, etc. SO much better than the cluttered cabinet.
I am loving the new pantry. My husband has even given me major props! He was once skeptical about all the canisters instead of boxes...but now I'm pretty sure he's a believer. And I couldn't have done it without him... all the painting, wood shelves and trim and Amazing lazy susans are credited to him! He's pretty much the greatest.
