From Amie (My Retro Kitchen), in Broadview Heights, Ohio:
After living for 4 years with horrible storage, my husband and I finally just redid it and now I am in heaven! I wish I would have taken before and after pictures because the transformation is HUGE! But all I have is my new beautiful one, and that is really all that matters.
This is what used to be the only pantry I had! Everything had to squeeze in there, and made it impossible to find anything. Way overcrowded and soooo unorganized!
Now it is where I store my spices, home canned goods, chocolate morsels and different drinks (coffees, teas, cocoas, mixers, etc.).
And the next photo is the coat closet that we turned into our wonderful new pantry!
Top shelf: appliances that are not used every day. Second shelf: red bins filled with place-mats, lunch bags, and other odds and ends. Third shelf: oils, vinegars, condiments, packet mixes, canned goods. Fourth shelf: noodles, rices, nuts and dried fruits, snacks. Fifth shelf: crackers, oatmeal, cookies and other boxed items. Sixth shelf: flours, sugars, different bread crumbs and other baking items. Floor: paper goods, bin full of onions, potatos and squash, recycling bin.
I wrote all about my pantry transformation on my blog. I hope you'll come visit!
