Our kitchen pantry was a disorganized disaster. I stuffed lunch boxes in the upper shelves, our kids housed their leftover candy in buckets, and I stuffed cardboard cereal boxes where I could fit them. It is a small pantry, its width is right around 24”.

This kitchen pantry was a “long weekend” DIY project. We started it on a Saturday night and finished it on Tuesday (with breaks!) My husband designed and installed the shelving. I painted the walls and stained the wood shelves. I also installed new rubbed bronze hinges & door knob because it seemed like the right time to remove the shiny 1990s brass. All in all we gave our kitchen pantry a makeover for under $300! That price includes construction supplies and organization supplies (article on that here).Read More
