Other People's Pantries #173
From Kevin, in Powell River, British Columbia (Canada):
I've been looking at and enjoying your posts on other people's pantries. I recently gave mine a complete rebuild and thought I would send along some pics.
Back when I bought this house in 2005, the first thing I did was rip out the bathroom completely, so I needed somewhere close by to store tools. Just outside the kitchen was a closet built out over the top of the basement stairs, which was shallow at the bottom and deep at the top, lined with waferboard, and shelved with unfinished pieces of cedar siding. Perfect for tools. So it became the tool pantry.
Once the bathroom was (almost) finished and I was joined by a new partner, it became obvious that the tool pantry needed to become a food pantry. So we bought an IKEA cabinet which would fit near the current center of remodeling operations (it never ends when you have a house built in the 1930′s), moved all the tools into that and organized them much better, and emptied everything out of the pantry, including all the shelves and shelf supports.
