My new pantry

This is an organizational project I took on a few weeks ago but really wanted to share. I like many of you have become fascinated with Pinterest!! I found this amazing pantry that a woman did and couldn't wait to redesign mine. It got to the point where I kept tossing things just where ever because I knew I was going to redo it. I hope I am not the only one out there like that. Well that went on for weeks, until I just couldn't take it anymore.

This was the before mess of a pantry (sorry for the blurry picture)

All cleaned out


A couple of things I did....

~ I spent no money. YAY!
~ I used paint, containers, and baskets that I already had.
~ I took the contact paper off the shelves and painted a coat of white onto the shelves.
~ I painted the walls green
~ I used a protective liner under the wire basket as well as the canned goods so they don't scratch the paint.
~ I took almost everything out that is not edible.

I hope you are inspired like I was to reorganize something in your home. I have found that it just makes life so much easier, and I can't wait to do more!
