Organization Inspiration: New Pantry Closet

The Fall 2009 Kitchen Cure

How's the Kitchen Cure going? Is your kitchen now neat as a pin? Or do you feel woefully behind? If it's the latter — don't give up! Just do what you can this weekend; just a half hour of purging old supplies and straightening up a utensil drawer can be enough to make you feel refreshed in your space. If you're tackling a bigger project, here's some inspiration from Sara in Washington, who turned an under-utilized closet into a pantry. Read on to see AFTER photos of her great pantry!

Here's what Sara says about the project:

Had an unattractive closet right next to the kitchen and turned it into a small pantry. We used hemlock to finish off the ends of the shelfs and built the rest with thick plywood. I think we are going to add another shelf but overall I'm happy!

Wow! What a difference both visually and functionally. We love the jars all lined up, and the way that those shelves really improve the closet. Great job, Sara!

Whether you're improving a closet or cupboard like Sara, or just cleaning out your spice drawer, take a moment tonight or tomorrow and give your own kitchen a Cure check-in! What's your next step?
