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?
