Ginger Snap Crafts: Amazing Pantry Makeover from A Little of This, A Little of That {contributor}

Amazing Pantry Makeover from A Little of This, A Little of That {contributor}

Hi!  I'm Sarah from A Little of This, A Little of That.  As the name of my blog suggests, there is a little of everything going on over there.  I love to decorate, DIY, sew, craft and cook!  I'm a momma to three beautiful children.  I blog about my latest projects, so I hope you'll stop by some time and get your creative juices flowing.  I've known Ginger for a long time, and am so honored to be a contributor on her blog today! We recently moved into a new house, and I have had so much fun decorating, painting, and all that a new house involves.
One thing has been lurking-and driving me nuts. 

Our scary pantry.
This is the scary before picture. 
Brace yourself!

I could never find anything.  Ever!

Here are a few {easy} things I did to spruce it up!

First, take everything out.  You've got to start with a blank slate!

To add some interest to my plain old walls, I decided to wallpaper! 
I found some *awesome* wallpaper. (source at end of post)  
It's "peel and stick" and "repositionable".  It is COOL stuff!
It really was just like a giant sticker. 
Cut it to size, and stick it on!

It was SO easy to install. 

It only took about 30 minutes to get these prettied-up walls.
I was loving the look of it. 

Next up, gather bins, buckets, baskets, crates, and pretty glass jars to organize all your food. 

My favorite places to get items like this are IKEA, Target, Wal-Mart, and shopping my own house!

Here is my after picture. 
Since I know that's the one you really want to see!

And, the right side.

Here are a few shelves, with details I love.

Baking Stuff

These frosted glass jars are so fun! 
The lids have a great seal on them too. 
It's kept my baking stuff fresh.

These "linen" bins are one my favorite things in this pantry. 
They are perfect for all those random baking supplies!

Legumes, Pasta, Grains

These metal baskets are perfect for holding bags of quinoa, cous cous, rice and pasta.

I heart them.


Love having all my legumes in glass containers. 
Much more fun than bags of beans falling off the shelf!

Cooking Oils

This bin was a little trickier to find.  I have a lot of bulky bottles, and way too many kinds of oil. Plus, my shelves are a little narrow.

This bin is actually for drying dishes, but sure works to store oils in too!

I might be slightly obsessed with those gray bins with the leather handles. 
So. Lovely.

Breakfast Food & Snacks

These cereal dispensers, which I wisely put at a level my kiddos can reach, make my day SO much easier.  My kiddos can help themselves to whichever kind they want. 
They can take care of the seconds too!

For sure the favorite after school spot for my kiddos! 
These labels are just paper, so I can switch them up easily if I need to.


My spices are now neatly tucked in a corner. 
Anything that didn't fit into that nifty spinning spice thingy, is now in a pretty white basket.

The spinning spice rack (which also measures your spices!)
is something that I use multiple times a day.

DIY Wood Crates

If you are like me, you hate food on the floor. 
To see how I solved that
dilemma, visit my blog!

I think that about wraps it up! 
Thanks for letting me share my pantry makeover with your readers, Ginger!
