From Kathleen (Kathleen's Vegetarian Kitchen), in northeast Florida:
This first photo was my pantry before the remodel. It was a doorway that had been blocked and lined with very narrow shelves. It was the only food storage of my entire kitchen besides my refrigerator. It had a certain charm, and I sometimes found myself buying canned goods with pretty labels, since they would be on display. I would catch guests staring at my pantry, and that was pretty fun.
After the remodel was complete, I found myself with more storage than I could have dreamed. I love my new pantry (photos below) with the roll-out shelves and all of the other cabinets and nooks available to me. Now most of my pantry items are hidden behind doors, but I decided to keep most of my spices out in the open for people to be able to easily snoop.
Remodeling the kitchen changed my life, because I now love to cook. Please visit the link to my blog for more descriptions of my new pantry.
Every Saturday we peek into Other People's Pantries.
