Yippeeee!!!! 4 down 27 to go!! And you know - it does not feel near as daunting as it did at the very beginning. Whew - what a relief.
Now before I show you my completed project, I will give you a little back ground. I discovered blogland during a blizzard/ice storm in February of this year. As in we were snowed in the house with nothing much to do but cook,eat, surf the net, etc. Actually - it was pretty fun.
During that time there were tons of incredible pantry make-overs on blogland. I love this one and this one and this one. Just to name a few. Let me tell you - there are some incredible pantries out there!! And just to pre-warn you, mine is not one of those.
So I dug out what paint I had on hand - which was brown. Then I emptied the pantry, scrubbed it from head to toe, and painted it. Even though the brown is dark - it is such and improvement over the contractor white which was so porous that any little thing that touched it left horrendous stains. Then I scoured my craft closet for containers and found some that - well the best I can say is that they worked. All I needed to do is make little labels for the containers. Which I did not do until today. (Although I must say daughter and I have had fun watching Honey dig through all the containers every time he wants anything)
So with out further ado
Ta - blah. A very boring - but organized - brown pantry. Oh but I did have to show off the spice rack on the door that Honey built when we first moved in - it is sooo handy.
I found these cute frame graphics at - where else - The graphics fairy. Then I put them into Picasa to add text. They are the only cute thing in the pantry.
So why did I procrastinate so badly on this project? This one is easy for me - mine was not blog-worthy I felt. All the other pantries were so bright and fresh and had such incredible storage systems, etc. Mine - well mine is blah. Very, very blah. And even though in real life I do not find it embarrassing - in blogland I do. And I felt that once I finally finished it I needed to put it on my blog so that I could give credit to those who motivated me to get it done. So to those of you with incredible pantries - thank you!!
Oh - and during that same ice storm I did make this for the outside of the pantry door
My very very first blog inspired project --- a coffee filter wreath. Love it!!
So at least the outside of my pantry is blogworthy!!!
