DIY Pantry Makeover

Here's my DIY Pantry Makeover, I'm pretty proud of myself!

Great weekend at the Homestead!  I'm finding that the older I get the more and more I enjoy staying at home and doing things around the house (LOSER)... I've been wanting to re-do my pantry for a couple weeks now and I FINALLY got all my materials together so I could get started.

I started at IKEA to get glass containers, then TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Ross and Staples...

Here's what you will need to get your pantry looking just like mine!
  • Glass Containers, I bought most of mine at IKEA
  • Self-Adhesive Shelf Liner, mine is Laura Ashley from Marshalls
  • Martha Stewart Chalkboard Labels
  • Chalk
  • Baskets to hold miscellaneous items such as snacks, etc...
  • Scissors and Tape Measure
  • A Whole Lotta Patience
Step 1: Get EVERYTHING out of your Pantry.  As you can see mine was an absolute DISASTER.  I wouldn't even show you this Before picture if the after wasn't so great!  This is just plain embarassing!

Step 2: Wipe down all of your shelves and start measuring.  This is a very important step, apparently when I see 7 1/2 inches I like to round it to 8 inches and that DOESN'T work.  I almost gave up after my first cutting attempt failed.  I finally got the hang of it and started installing the paper.

Step 3: Figure out what Items you would like to put into your containers
  • Pasta
  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Oats
  • Cereal
  • Tea/Coffee
  • You get the idea!
Step 4:  Start putting everything into your new Pantry!

Let me know if you have any questions about my Pantry Makeover.  What do you think?
