Pantry Redo ( Or Should I Say Finish ? )

Do you see these unfinished shelves in this pantry ?


When this pantry was built ( 7 or 8 years ago ) stuff just got stored in it before I ever got a chance to paint the shelves .

So yesterday I decided that since today was garbage day I would clean it out and get rid of anything that had an expired date on it . And I swear I found some oatmeal and some grits that had been in there since the beginning of time .

While it was so clean I figured it was time to put a coat of paint on those poor naked shelves .


And if you will look back at that first picture you will see a stack of cook books on top of that small cabinet on the side. That has been bugging me for a long time too .

I added some cute red check shelf paper and reloaded this baby .


The cook books now have a home inside and out of sight when the door is closed .


That leaves a little space on top of the little phone cabinet to decorate , and room for the phone books and a pad of paper and a place to put my postage stamps and such stuff .

You can tell by the few things in this pantry . that I am the only one that lives in this house . I suppose I could put Bubba’s food on the bottom shelf now , instead of in the laundry room . I will have to find some pretty red container to keep it in so he can’t get into it when the door is open .

There is such a nice feeling of accomplishment when you finish something that needed to be done .
