During this era of staying at home and social distancing we’ve all come to appreciate home. At the heart of the home is the kitchen. It is where a lot of life is lived. As a close second: the pantry. This is definitely true at my parents house, where we all congregate when we come to visit. I had so much fun organizing this space for her!
My Mom is a designer with a general contracting license and she has a really good eye.
When she was designing her home about ten years ago, she had the genius idea to include these incredibly narrow shelves (they’re only about 6″ deep) on one wall of her butler’s pantry. It is a DREAM. Most of the problems I solve when I work in other pantries is shelves that are incredibly deep making it difficult to store things without losing them in the depths of the shelves (literally).
My parents live five minutes away from Carson and me, and we had seen each other so much that we extended them into our “quarantine circle.” And so it was the perfect time for me to help my mom with some finishing touches on her pantry. Wait… let me back up a bit. A few weeks before quarantine she had asked me to help with her house and I had several clients at the time and told her she would probably have to wait at least a month or so until I had time to help her out. As luck would have it she was bumped to the top of the list as quarantine measures were implemented on our city.
I’m sharing some pictures from this fun project. I’ll share where we splurged, and where we saved with links to the bins and labels we used! It was so much fun!!
Taking a look at the details….
