An organized pantry feels good. I mean, really good. It gives me a feeling of satisfaction knowing that I will easily be able to find what I need, and see what kind of stock I have at any given time. I know, this doesn't sound very exciting, but it really does feel satisfying.
My pantry organization project was completely inspired by this post over at House of Smiths. I wonder how many pantries across the US are now organized and cute thanks to this blog post?
First things first, I painted the walls gray with some leftover gray paint from our bedroom. Then I painted the shelves white with some extra white cabinet paint from the Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations kit we used for our laundry room makeover.
I purchased many of the canisters, jars and containers from Ikea, which made this project really reasonable:
Jar labels I purchased from Shelley at House of Smiths directly. You can see her vinyl label store here, but I was able to contact her and make a special request, since I had specific jar names in mind.
I hope this post is able to inspire more to organized pantry heaven!
I will be taking a few weeks off from posting on the blog, as we are headed on a road trip to California, with a week in Ireland in between. Will share my travel reviews and photos when I return!
