Remember where we left off?
Bad color, no door, and no shelves. It didn't stay that way for long, folks!
Taa daa! Ah, I just love it to pieces!
I repainted the inside a more peachy orange. I can't remember what it's called - I'll update later! I know it's by Behr. ***UPDATE*** It's called "Autumn Arrival"
Can we all agree that this is a better color? Ok, thank you for affirming me! It photographs dark - probably because it's in a closet. So it's a bit lighter in person - adding just the right level of cheer that I need when I'm looking for food in the pantry.
As for organizing, I'm still deciding where things go and if I need more baskets and such. Right now, I have all my little things stored in various containers. My spices are in a cute wire basket that I found at Goodwill, and I have Dan's coffee pods in a round glass container that I got at HomeGoods a while back. I just bought that wire rack for under the shelf, and I'm still deciding what would be best in there. I like the idea of bread or other things that I don't want to get squished! I'll have to restock my bread to test it out!
Let's not forget about my OXO containers. I meaaaaaaaaan. Who doesn't love a good OXO container!? Right now they are just labeled with boring clear labels. But I'm working on finding (or making) just the right chalkboard labels for them. I think it would be easier to read, and just cuter in general.
Because we all love a good before and after, right!?
Seriously, this pantry is my best friend.
Annnnnnyways.... remember my house to-do list? It's gotten bigger! Even though I've crossed some things off...weird how that works.
Paint Create an island
- Window treatment
- Open Shelving
- Paint (paint swatches bought. Deciding between 4 shades of grey! Why is it so hard!?)
- Buy rug (maybe?)
- Hang pictures
- Window treatment
- Entertainment center fix-up (I've got an awkward space and zero ideas on how to use it. I'll whine about it in another post.)
- Large rug
- Recover dining chairs
- Find slim "hutch" type furniture (maybe sofa table?)
