The Pantry

I am jumping on the pantry bandwagon. I want a neat and organized pantry too. Here is a quick peek of the vastly improved pantry.



Before, it looked like this:






On the plus side, the pantry is painted a pretty Tiffany Blue (just like the library). The brooms are already hung up and off the floor (kind of gross to keep cleaning things in the pantry, but I need them close to the mess-making). I have everything I need to make it organized, the OXO pop-up containers, tiered racks for cans, now I just needed labels and to organize the space. I already have a spice drawer next to the stove.

Enter my trusty assistant.



After discovering that I had marshmallows in two different containers that I could condense into one (we like to make s'mores in the living room fireplace, what can I say?) I set to work taming the chaos. In addition to many things (you can see my blog goals here) this blog makes me actually organize my pantry, hooray! The well deserved after takes my breath away, there is so much empty space! Who knew a pantry could have clear shelves and empty bins?

So that looks amazing! I think we are long lost soul mates since I have a tad bit of ODC when it comes down to organization! Looks beautiful. Are you going to let anyone else besides yourself go in there. LOL

Hi Jessica!! Love your organized pantry - those labels are gorgeous!! Just saw this linked up at Addicted 2 Decorating and wanted to let you know that your Office Sneak Peak link doesn't have a picture with it...just an FYI.... You've inspired me to get my own pantry organized and neatened up too...although with two boys and an always hungry husband, my pantry is constantly being emptied and filled! Have a great weekend:)

We are planning on redoing our kitchen (not nearly as gorgeous as yours seeing as it's about the 3rd of the size..yours is what dreams are made of...sigh) and I was wondering, where is your pantry in your kitchen and how what are the dimensions of it. Can you show a picture of it from further away? (I'm just trying to figure out what kind of style we're going for!) Thanks!
