DIY: the pantry project.

I will without a doubt have a jaw-dropping, pinterest-worthy pantry. someday! but the effort that goes into painting & lining the shelves. and the money that goes into purchasing the containers. are both something I am not willing to put forth while renting an apartment. [when I have my own house ..all bets are off].

with that said, the clutter & disorganization of the pantry was driving me crazy. to the point I’d rather avoiding eating than open that door. [insert: exaggeration]. I had to do something. on the cheap.

SONY DSCI spent $7.00 on containers. which I purchased at the dollar tree. the other items I had at home: tape, computer & printer [to make labels], and a couple miscellaneous storage containers I’d used before.

the process.

before & after

it was worth every second. and I could not be happier with the outcome. [except for the huge grocery list I have now that I can see what I’m missing].

if you haven’t given your pantry/cupboards a face-lift: do it. the time is minimal. and your bank account will not suffer.

happy organizing.

      Ashley – Thank you! I was honestly surprised by the outcome. I went with the green bins because that was all they had. I was skeptical, but seeing the finished product ..I love the pop of color!
