Kitchen Pantry Before…
Unfortunately, I don’t have any before pics of our kitchen pantry…just be thankful you can’t see or smell the before.
A day or two after we moved in my sweet girlfriend Elise helped me take down the colonial blue contact paper in an attempt to unpack things but sadly it was far from needing new contact paper!
The shelves were water damaged from who knows what & the kitchen pantry had definitely been visited by a few small four legged creatures coming up from the crawl space under it.
So all we did was plug the holes & close the door…until this past weekend.
Our master bedroom is finally done & after a few failed craigslist trips to finish furnishing it we didn’t have any time left to start a new project so I asked Jason if he could help me finish the kitchen pantry.
Kitchen Pantry Shelving
He covered the walls with bead board & trimmed them out with some pine wood.
He added some melamine shelves we have left over from our old master closet which is now Tucker’s room.
Then we primed & painted everything white.
The project was free (woo hoo) because we were able to use scraps from the garage.
Sadly, we had to buy a new water heater last week which took all and more of my new master bedroom rug & chair budget.
The white wire shelves hold Moose‘s supplies & some vases for fresh flowers.
Our new kitchen pantry is perfect for helping me get more organized in our kitchen. It holds many of my kitchen appliances.
I finally have all my pitchers, coffee carafes & water jugs together in one place.
I even have an empty shelf left over!
It’s amazing how one very small closet can fit SO MUCH!
Kitchen Cabinet Organization
With the extra space I was also able to organize some of my other kitchen cabinets. It’s like a whole new kitchen.
I now have a pullout for my empty Ball Mason Jars!
Here’s another newly organized cabinet for my baking supplies, big plates & platters.
My glasses & mug cabinet.
The organization even moved into the dining room where I rearranged my dining room hutch.
I added some Japanese Pieris flowers from my yard to the glass jug ( which is an up-cycled apple juice bottle) on my dining table.
Aren’t they beautiful?
I had never thought to bring pieris flowers in before and I think I will every spring from now on!
Can you believe how one tiny kitchen pantry inspired so much organizing!
I also filled two bags for the thrift store that I plan to donate later today.
It’s amazing how simple changes make such huge impacts!
Here’s hoping this spring organizing moves into some more rooms…like my laundry room to the left of this pic.
Freestanding Kitchen Hutch for More Kitchen Pantry Organization Ideas
This tall kitchen cabinet gives us so much more kitchen organization & storage.
I keep so many of our table linens & baking pans here.
Kitchen Island for More Kitchen Organization & Storage
We also added a kitchen island which allows more EVEN more kitchen storage.
Kitchen Bookcase & Desk for More Kitchen Storage & Organization
We also added some built in bookcases & a built in desk to our farmhouse kitchen for even more storage.
I hope this gives you lots of kitchen inspiration & storgae ideas for your kitchen pantry!
