Organizing Made Fun The Less Mess Project: Pantry Reveal! Well, I’ve spent the last week painting, stenciling, and organizing my pantry and I have to admit…it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. Not because it was particularly fun to do, but because the results make life so much easier. Seriously, if I had known how much less stressed having an organized pantry would make me feel I would have done it years ago. So, here it is…my organized masterpiece. As a reminder as to how horribly disorganized I am, the before shot… Now it makes me smile just to look in there. So much better, right? So as a quick recap of the last post… The hardest part of this makeover was taking the rack off the back of the door and finding a place for all that stuff. Let’s take a closer look shall we? Below that we have more baking supplies in Tupperware canisters (that I’ve had forever). The clear canisters are OXO POP Canisters. They’re not the cheapest thing ever, but they’re the nicest canisters I found by far. Next shelf down we have rice, beans, etc and cereals.

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. 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. Here are a few {easy} things I did to spruce it up! First, take everything out. To add some interest to my plain old walls, I decided to wallpaper! It's "peel and stick" and "repositionable". 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. The left side view: Baking Stuff So.
