It’s been a bit of a struggle making our small kitchen work for our big family, especially without spending any money on temporary solutions (we have a big overhaul planned!), so when we decided that the pantry and hall will stay “as-is” during the remodel, we got busy throwing some time and resources at it to make things a little more functional and I’m so glad we did! It’s made grocery shopping, packing lunches, and feeding my crew so much easier. 100% worth the investment! Will share all the bins and containers we used below as well as before pics, and if you’re in the Seattle-Tacoma area I highly recommend hiring Ashley of Finding Order to help with your projects (she’s amazing)… or follow along for all her tips and tricks!
I’ll be back with a few after pics that include the wallpaper, our overflow storage in the garage, and a few (really cute) art print posters you’ll be able to download and use for FREE!
PANTRY STORAGE ITEMS:
- Wood bins
- White bins (like the one poppy is holding above, holds mostly overflow items and open chip and cracker bags)
- Clear plastic bins: holds things in smaller packages like pasta, grains, and mac & cheese boxes
- Cereal containers
- Snack food containers: holds everything from fishy crackers and chocolate chips to pumpkin seeds and dried mangos
- Bin labels
- Paint pen + chalk marker
- Metal stacking floor bins
- Favorite lunch boxes: here & here
- Smaller long green bins (used in the dresser drawers)
Pantry trim is arsenic by farrow and ball.
Everyone’s favorite spot in the house!
The nook at the end of the hallway will eventually be a 3rd bathroom, but is currently a catch-all for my work stuff, extra home decor, and anything else that doesn’t have a home… we’re also waiting on electrical and plumbing before we add drywall over the exposed framing. Always a work in progress! Thankful for smaller projects that actually get finished, lol.
