Other People's Pantries #97
From Marianne (Just the 9 of Us), in Utah:
You might remember my previous pantry from August 22, 2009, pantry #82. Now we are in our new house.
Notice the pantry is empty, and its contents are all over the countertop.
The dust had finally settled and we had moved into our new house. Then the floor developed small bumps and valleys over the next couple of weeks. So, my brand new floor had to come up and be replaced.
The verdict? The floor warped due to the moisture from the rain during the building process. And did it ever rain! Prior to the floor guys coming, I took a few pictures to share of my new pantry, but sadly all of the contents of the pantry ended up on the countertops and dining room table to make room for the floor guys to work.
It is all back neatly in its place now. As you can see my dry goods are stored in pickle jars and two-liter bottles.
The bulk things at the bottom of the pantry really need to be in buckets to protect them from possible moisture. This will come.
And as for the Blue IKEA bins... I would like to replace them with see-through containers so that I do not have to lift the bins down to see their contents. (I used what I had on hand when I unpacked.) IKEA has hard acrylic straight-sided containers that would be ideal for this job.
The basement in this house has a storage room under the front porch where the rest of my bulk food storage is located. I am so happy to be in my cozy new home. Thanks for looking!
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
