Two years ago, I showed you the transformation of our pantry. Well, it stayed that way for quite some time, but over the past few months, it had taken on a life of its own and not it a good way.
Placing the individual serving size snack items in one basket is making school lunch preparations much quicker.
Having unopened extras like mustard, dressings and jellies in one spot will minimize me buying multiples because I think I am out.
Once I had the items sorted, I painted the walls and shelves. The paint color is called "Fudgesicle" and I used a low VOC paint.
I found some super cool silver contact paper and attached it to the tops of each shelf.
I also attached two drawers to the shelves...one holds extra foil and plastic wrap and the other granola bars...super handy!
I now have room for bulky things like pitchers, dessert plates and a picnic basket in here. I am thrilled!
One portion that I am less than thrilled about is this...
The cork board is falling apart and the mess of papers is just ....messy. I recently learned about magnetized paint and thought this would be a perfect place for it.
I LOVE the way it looks.....unfortunately, just the movement of closing the door knocks the magnets down. It the pain is just not strong enough. Have any of you used this paint before? Did I do something wrong?
All in all, I am super pleased with the makeover and I sincerely hope this is the last time I show you my pantry.
