I recently finished my first room makeover. I refinished the screened-in-porch for a One Room Challenge. Have you seen it yet? What do you think? My next project comes out of necessity. I was so tired of looking at the mess in my pantry that I decided to give it a makeover. If you are looking for small pantry ideas, let's talk about our small pantry design plans.
Budget: under $80
This is the overall direction that I'd like to go—interesting pattern with vines, warm green color matched with warm wooden shelves (probably Early American).
I saw these 2 beautiful wallpaper options by Magnolia and had difficulty deciding which one I like better. When I emailed my landlord a project proposal, she loved both but was more inclined towards one. I'll show you in a couple of days which one we chose 🤗
I like this green color, and I think it would match perfectly with the chosen wallpaper. As for baskets and containers, I'm not yet sure what to do.
Surely, all the glass jars look stunning on Pinterest. I'm just not sure how practical it will be for our family. I'm yet to figure out the perfect organizational solution.
As a part of that solution I think would be great if I could remove one of the shelves and add two instead. This tall space (13") between each of them isn't very functional. Most of the containers are quite low and it's basically a waste of space. I need to figure out how to address that.
I'm thinking of adding a ¼" plywood sheet on top of these shelves and attaching a trim on the front that would cover the edges. That's an idea!
Here is how the pantry looks now. No judgment, please😁 since I was so busy with other projects, every time I'd come with groceries, I'd shovel them in the closet, close the door and call it a day. But it's soon about to change!
Design boards are so helpful to start a room renovation and get some of the bigger elements decided, but I always stay open to change as a project evolves. I can’t wait to see this bathroom comes together!
