The Less Mess Project: Pantry Reveal!


(If you missed the first part of this post you can read about it HERE and you can read about the Less Mess Project HERE).

My pantry is finished and I'm totally in love with it! 
As a reminder as to how totally disorganized I am, here is my pantry before...
Nice right? It stressed me out just to look in there. I'm already not a fan of cooking and this made it even worse. It's too bad that I'm not one of those people that thinks cooking is the bees knees, since I have to do it everyday. Wouldn't it be awesome if your hobby was also something that you had to do? I don't need to have a creatively decorated house, but I do need to cook healthy meals for my family. And to add insult to injury, after you cook then you have to clean it all up. Double suck.
 Anyway, rabbit trail. What I meant to say was that cooking it a little more fun now that my pantry is awesome.

So as a quick recap of the last post...
After emptying it out, painting it white, and stenciling, my pantry looked like this...

And here, ladies and gentleman,  is my organized masterpeice!
It makes me smile just to look in there.
I even managed to take the rack off the back of my door. That was probably the hardest part, finding a new place for all that rack stuff.  I plan on taking the door off completely and replacing it with old wooden screen door. I've gotta show off all that beautiful organization, you know? Plus it's a great way to add some personality to the kitchen. I plan on painting it the same color as the kitchen cabinets (which is the same color as the stencil...Sherwin Williams Harbor Grey). I just need to get my hands on a door first....and I don't care if its No Spend February or not, if I find the perfect door I WILL buy it.

Let's take a closer look shall we? On the top shelf we have baking supplies and a basket full of to go toddler snacks.
Below that we have more baking supplies in Tupperware canisters (that I've had forever). The labels are just  cheapo scrap booking stickers from Hobby Lobby - I don't think a dollar has ever made me feel so fancy before!
 Then we have crackers and pastas. The pasta is stacked two deep - we eat a lot of pasta.
 The clear canisters are OXO POP Canisters. I originally wanted pretty circular glass ones, but I could't find any that were airtight. Plus my pantry isn't very big and circular canisters aren't the best use of space. I love these OXO ones though, they have a button on top that you press to take the lid off, then you press it again to seal it closed. Plus they're stackable and the seal matches my stencil color (very important!) I bought mine HERE on Amazon...
They're not the cheapest, but they're the nicest canisters I found by far. (If you want big ones to hold flour you'll have to buy the big 5.5 quart ones separately.) I also found a few randomly at HomeGoods, they were way cheaper but only had a few at a time.
(Update - A reader recommended these Lock and Lock containers, said they're awesome and they're WAY cheaper. Wishing I'd have seen them first...) 

Next shelf down we have rice, beans, etc and cereals. The 'MIX' cereal is for me...I like my cereals mixed - the more the merrier! I used to just pull out every cereal in the morning and put a little of each in my bowl. Now the plan is to pour the cereal remnants from the other canisters onto mine so I only have to pour one cereal in the morning. I great idea if I may say so myself.
The lowest shelf is canned goods. I found some risers at Target and they work great - now I can see everything. Next to the risers is our supply of Costco tomato bisque soup. Have ya'll had this stuff? I don't recommend you try it unless you never want to be able to eat another brand of tomato soup ever again. It's that good. 
On the floor we have some bins (from The Container Store- the shelf baskets are from there too) that holds unopened condiments on the top and onions and potatoes on the bottom. Next to that is my old onion and potato holder which now holds tea bags for sweet tea. It wasn't quite big enough for potatoes... plus I'm pretty sure it didn't get enough airflow because my potatoes grew sprouts like it was their job in there.


I didn't wan't to waste any valuable space, so I the sides of the pantry I put little wire baskets to hold my spices and whatnot. They're actually pencil holder drawer thingys - most normal sized ones were too long for this space so they took forever to find. Guess where I found these? Yup, The Container Store.

Hubby just screwed them into the wall like so...
The other side is a little deeper so I found wider ones to hold other (ugly) stuff). These side baskets are the only reason I was able to take the rack off the back of the door, otherwise my screen door dreams might have been squandered.
Here is a picture so you can see how many there are...
(Gosh it's hard to take pictures of the inside of a tiny pantry!)
That's the grand tour! Do you love it as much as I do? I'm pretty confident that I can keep it this organized for the long haul, everything we use is in there and it all has a place. Here is a side by side before and after shot, looking at that after makes me feel so calm and happy! 

Next I'm moving on to organizing the craft closet, that ones going to be a doozy!

Fabulous! I wish I still had a pantry. It's the only thing I miss about our crappy apartment. I'm a super organized person and I love your pantry. All the fancy little baskets and containers are like something from my dreams. ^-^ I can't wait to see your crafty closet!

Great job on the pantry. I think your stencils really added a nice touch. I did a post about doors and there's a few screen doors in there if you want for inspiration, here's the link http://viewsfromcarolannscamera.blogspot.com/2012/01/doors.html
I remember seeing in an ad for must a basic wood screen door at a hardware store. Very inexpensive and you could add whatever you want to it. Looking forward to seeing what you do! Carol Ann

Oh my goodness! What a difference and a great job! Love, love the little baskets on the sides! I think the wood screen door will be the perfect final touch!

I know right? I'm having a hard time finding a screen door that's only 24 inches wide, I think I may have to make one. Well, have the husband make one ;)

I recently read an article that the "fumes" from onions actually cause potatoes to rot quicker and it suggested keeping the two in separate areas. Not sure it there's any merit to this, but thought I'd pass it along!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! My pantry is a lot like yours (used to be version, not the beauty it is now!), but my shelves span the whole depth of the closet. They are so deep that things keep getting lost in the back and I never know what I have. I might knock those big shelves out and get narrower ones and steal your little spice holder idea. That was brilliant! I love the stenciling and it just looks so pretty.

If you put your onions and potatoes together the onion will rot the potatoes. They should not be stored together.

Your pantry looks great! I need to organize mine but mine is a deep, dark cabinet and the door is right up against the shelves. Perhaps I should cut the shelve some so that there is space on the sides like yours. Love your "mix" cereal. My husband has a combination every morning with 6 different cereals. I keep wanting to put them in a container but he has a specific layering so they can't be mixed! Drives me batty!! Hope you find a screen door soon...that'll look nice!

Gosh from seeing all your comments I guess organizing one's pantry is a big thing - well it is to me. Doesn't it absolutely feel great! Really like the stencil and want to do that with mine. I love how organized you are and need to take inspiration from it. Very nice! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best.

GREAT job! I am so glad you posted this because I have a pantry JUST LIKE yours! (your BEFORE one!) I always see posts with huge pantries and I think "ummm...mine is a little closet!" so I am so thrilled to see how to do it in a small space! You have motivated me and I hope to copy yours soon!
Quick question...where do you keep your trash can? I have mine in the pantry but it adds to the mess and takes up a lot of space.....

thanks again for sharing this!

haha, specific layering...I have to tell my husband this so he'll think I'm less weird :D

I thought the same thing when I saw other pantries online, most have those nice corner shelves...mine doesn't even have a full size door. But it can be done! My trash can is against the wall on the other side of the kitchen, so it's close to where I cook. If you check out my kitchen posts you can see it a bunch. I like not having o turn a door handle with super messy hands, plus I need all the pantry space I can get. Good luck with yours!

Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any tips?
