Pantry Update

I finally finished organizing my pantry!

This is what it looked like before:












Those who know me must be shocked by this picture!  Everyone thinks I'm so tidy...but for some reason I had left the pantry get out of hand!





















This little dresser (or whatever it is!) was left behind by previous owners from our old house and I've had it in our current laundry room for the last five years!


























I gave it two coats of paint and put it in the pantry ...now it is storage to most of my baking supplies!
























Here's what my pantry looks like now!

Kerri, your new pantry looks so cute. Love it! I have to tell you though, your 'before' picture of the pantry looked pretty organized to me too! Maybe I need to have you come to my house and teach me how to get more organized.

That is an adorable pantry! I love the green color. We are building a new house soon, and it will have a pantry. I am haoping I can make mi e look half as cute as yours! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. And thank you so very much for the encouragement! I need it!

Oh, do tell where you got those green baskets. This looks amazing. Now you can add this room to the home tour for sure. I bet you are so glad to have that finished! Happy day!

Great way to use that dresser! Your pantry looks amazing!!!

Amanda said...

So cute! That dresser in the pantry idea is great!

Kerri said...

Thanks everyone! I bought the green baskets at AC Moore....over a couple week period using my 40% coupons, of course!

Debbie said...

Om gosh your pantry puts mine to absolute shame. That is the cutest most organized pantry I have ever seen. Nice job!

Lisa said...

It looks great! I love the colors and all the baskets to stay organized! And I'm super jealous that you even have a pantry!

Jenny said...

Oh Kerri, it looks so wonderful! I love the dresser painted, black painted furniture is so great. The labels on everything look so cute. Way to go! Now if we only had professional cooks/chefs to use all that stuff... we'd be set to go!

the whole pantry looks so bright and pretty but I love that you used the dresser for baking storage. I have the hardest time with all my sheet cake pans and that would work perfect.

Oh my gosh! I have pantry envy! I love, love, love the green color, and those cute little poka dot lids. You have inspired me to clean ours out! It's currently a mess!

Jen said...

Kerri,
I'm on way out to get poppyseed muffin stuff. Yum! I got the cake stand at a 'Southern Living at Home' a few years ago. It is wooden and really dark brown. I love it. They probably still sell them. I answered on my blog too...but thought I pop over here in case you missed it. Happy Weekend! I'm an everyday follower!

That is so cute! Love the jars and baskets and bright green - very inspirational.

Jen said...

Hi again!
Of course you can mention my blog...how sweet! I have lots of blog envy issues myself. I actually really enjoy creating and tweeking etc... I am a nurse by trade and there is not very much room for creativity there....one of the reasons I love blogging.
Have a great weekend and thanks a bunch!
:) Jen

I so want your pantry. You can have the goodies in it but I want the storage, the baskets, the dresser... all of it. You did such a fantastic job. I wish I had a pantry, would be something cool to have. One day maybe.
