The pantry makeover- Simply Living Smart.

I’ve complained for a while now about my teeny tiny pantry. How can I make it more functional and pretty? Well, I finally gave in, and pulled everything out.  The next morning, I opened my email to see one from Anitra and Simply Living Smart. Guess what? It was all about pantry organization. Bingo! I promptly painted it- and called my friend Anitra Kerr. She happily came to my rescue. In just 3 hours, we turned my non-functional kitchen into a functional bakers paradise.

Let’s start at the very beginning. How could I find anything in there, really?

I pulled everything out, and this is what I got. Old, dirty shelving. You know how one project turns into another?

So I painted. (Can you see the difference a little paint makes?)

Here’s the messy side cabinet.

And can you believe all this stuff fit in that small pantry? Much more amazing when I placed it on the kitchen table.

 Here’s my little buffet. It used to be just full of cutsie things, and the kids would sit and color. Not anymore!

Anitra kindly suggested it becomes a baking center. All these things make me happy to see. I’m a very visual person.

And the finished pantry. I literally was so happy, I had to fight back tears of joy!

The kids section. They are still putting things away- even a week later.

My baking cabinet. I can see everything now.

My spice drawer. I did however because of space, put the spices I don’t hardly ever use in the food storage room downstairs. But still fit over 30 next to the stove. Happy Day!

Here’s the video that we did to show what we did. I say we, but Anitra was the one who did it. I was her helper.

Don’t wait any longer to do this to your kitchen. Just do it! Now! And if you can’t tackle it by yourself, call Anitra. She is amazing and so gifted. Not to mention fun to have in your kitchen for 3 hours. I had a blast.

Thanks Anitra! Happy Organizing!

P.S. If you want all these awesome containers, go here to purchase them. I highly recommend it. I will change your life.
