Since our kitchen was being put back together (and it feels brand new, even though it's all the old stuff except the floor!), I decided to organize our pantry. We are lucky to have a nice sized pantry area with lots of shelving. This is what it looked like during the construction:
There is nothing wrong with it, there just isn't much to it. I only made a few minor changes to give it a little facelift.
1. gave the shelves a fresh coat of white paint
2. painted the interior walls of the pantry a nice light blue color
3. painted the outer lip of the shelves with chalkboard paint so they can be labeled
And there you have it. I did it during Finn's afternoon nap, and I think it makes the pantry a cheerful and organized area in our kitchen!
Eventually I want to get some more organizing gadgets to make better use of the deep shelves. I also want to add a few more hooks for things that need to be hung up. But this is a nice first step!
