The Great Pantry Makeover
I decided it was time for a makeover on the pantry...
I guess I've got too much time on my hands.
Here's the BEFORE.
This double door pantry has been great, but really it had become a hiding spot for... everything!
The white baskets were a nice idea... until things ended up like this
(note the bread can not be contained. What?!):
The only way to get this job done right was to clear the whole thing out.
The dining room table became a holding pen for all the goods.
My kids were lovin' this idea,
until I made them taste-test things to find out what we needed to pitch (ie. stale cereal!)
I started by gathering some jars and containers.
And then put the "containers" back in the pantry to create some order.
Now to figured out what was going where.
I got happy with my Silhouette and laminator.
I tried to use things I already had, like the white bins. Here's where I got some of the other things:
Of course I had to add some "cutesy" element. So I crafted up these letters to spell E A T:
More on how I did that in another post.
I kept the OATS in the original container and just took off the label and added my own!
I printed off basic cooking instructions for the Jasmine Rice and Bisquick...
and adhered it to the back of the canisters.
If you've never tried supreme pancakes with Biquick-you must.
They are so light and fluffy!
I can't promise the pantry will stay looking this nice.
After all I've got some snack-snatchers who are constantly in here!
