Other People's Pantries #39

From Teresa, in Burlington, North Carolina:

I enjoy cooking very much and find that a well-stocked pantry and freezer allow me to make a pot of soup on the weekend without making a special trip to the store or stir up a stir-fry dish for dinner when I get home and decide that is what I want to eat.

Recently I remodeled my kitchen pantry in my 1910 brick bungalow. After the remodel, I have two deep shelves left up high for extra kitchen "stuff" and new smaller, narrow shelves in an L-configuration for pantry food storage. The wall on the left has no shelves, but has hooks for hanging the stir-fry pan, strainers, colanders, roasting pan, and aprons.

The 46" across and 34.5" deep space is big enough that I can walk *into* the pantry and even turn around if I want!

The shelves were already covered with a white laminate and did not need painting. I did paint the old bead board wall covering a clean white to brighten up the interior. I like to use large glass jars to store oatmeal, rice, barley, etc. and tins with tight fitting covers to store tea, cocoa, pasta, etc. Baskets hold onions and brown paper bags hold potatoes.

It took 2 carpenters one day and $300 to re-do the pantry and a few other odd jobs around the house. Best money I have spent in a long time!

On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.

Come on -- show us your pantry.

Here's how.
