This week of the challenge, I’m sharing all about our pantry shelving solution. Get rid of your wire shelves and change it out for these easy DIY wood pantry shelves
One week away from the final reveal and I have to say, I’m feeling good about actually having this done on time!
I hope you’re following along in Instagram stories, because we are giving more “live” updates and behind the scenes there. But for more curated, well photographed views, you’re in the right place.
In case you’ve missed any previous weeks, you can see them all here:
We installed our schmediumlap last week and this week, we got it all painted!
While I am in LOVE with the color, it is so hard to photograph. I feel like every time I show it or take a picture of it, it looks completely different. It also doesn’t help that I have a window from the laundry room shining brightly on it, plus the window in the side door to the right of it. I try to take pictures at the same time during the day, but regardless, this color is way richer and so much nicer in person.
Just trust me. And this is coming from the girl who is absolutely terrified of color in a house. (And fish, but that’s a whole separate story and has nothing to do with the issue at hand here)
Once we got everything painted, it was time for some pantry shelving! I was so excited about this part! We had like 1.8 billion random sample cans of stain, so we chose one we liked, which happened to be Minwax Dark Walnut and stained these bad boys and put them in.
The pantry shelves were so easy. It’s 3/4 inch plywood with a 1×2 nailed to the front. Bam. Bingo bango. Simplicity at its finest. Pantry shelving in less than a few hours.
We didn’t even stain the bottom of them except the very top shelf. You’ll never see it, we’re lazy, and we were trying to use as little stain as possible. Who knows what other projects we may need it for?
Honestly, making our pantry shelving has been the easy part. FOR WEEKS, my brain has been swirling around ideas about how to best organize this ON THE CHEAP and still have it look good.I will say luckily I already have some baskets and glass jars, but other than that, I’m at a loss for how to put this all back together.
Do any of you have any suggestions? I’m open to any and all!
