Other People's Pantries #117
From Karen, on the sunshine coast of British Columbia, Canada:
I've never had a "walk-in" pantry before. Because I am short, my two-step ladder occupies much of the floor space. One of its nicer features is that a light goes on when the door is opened. It can be a little disconcerting if the door swings shut while one is inside!
The spice rack that covers the inside of the door is one of the best features of the pantry. The hardware was difficult to find in Canada, but I finally found a Winnipeg company that carried it.
Inside, it is nothing fancy, just sturdy shelves that hold both food and appliances. As I live in a rural area, I try to keep a fair amount of food on hand.
I put little-used appliances on top, but heavier appliances like my bread machine and KitchenAid mixer go on a more convenient shelf.
Onion and potato bins used to be on the floor, but their contents tended to escape into the corners. The stack of ice cream buckets on the left side of the picture contain the many different flours needed to maintain my bread-making habit.
I've enjoyed The Perfect Pantry, and especially Other People's Pantries, since before I had this pantry, and it has been so helpful in the development of its organization and storage systems. Thank you so much for hosting all these pantries over the years.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
*There are eight more
pantries to share. If you'd like this feature to continue -- if you've
been meaning to send your photos but haven't gotten around to it --
send in your pantry photos. I'll keep featuring them every
Saturday as long as you keep sending them. Watch for a new Saturday
feature (one you'll all
want to participate in) when we close the doors on Other People's
