Home Improvement: A Built-in Pantry

So this odd little closet is stuck in behind the A/C return on the other side of this wall.

It originally had bi-fold doors in front of it, but the doors were awkward so we got rid of them.

Then a couple years went by, we painted our cabinets and updated a few other things.

And then it became very obvious that it was TIME to do something about this eye sore.

I came up with a game plan of removing the white wire shelving and replacing it with painted shelves.

We also added the same ship lap paneling that I used on the back hall project a few weeks ago.

Project Total:

Stair treads used as shelves: $40

Paneling leftover from the hall project: $0

Paint and caulk leftover from previous projects: $0

It now holds all my baking staples, dish cloths, paper products, towels and trash bags.
