The pantry is coming along nicely. I'm still searching for more food storage and I've found some good containers, but they can get pretty pricey!
Some of you noticed the glass storage containers that I have in the pantry right now.
I fell in love with these after seeing them in Ina Garten's kitchen (the Barefoot Contessa). They can be found at Crate and Barrel AND Target! She keeps them on her counter and I think I like them better there as well.
Another trend that I'm seeing is storage hung on the pantry door.
There are two types of door storage found on the doors above. One (my favorite) is actually shoe organizers! I've seen this done before in bedrooms for jewelry, but never would have thought of using them in a pantry. The other door storage solution can be found in your local home improvement store in the closet organization section for about $30. This is a better solution if you need a little more solid shelf space. I think I may try the shoe organizer to hold miscellaneous items.
What I'm debating over right now is using baskets in the space.
I'm loving baskets in pantries. The items in the baskets above are not that organized, but because they are in baskets it gives the pantry an organized look.
My pantry should be complete by Friday and I can't wait! The hardest part of completing this space is making it presentable. I'm not satisfied with the color, but IT'S A PANTRY! Does the color really matter?!?!
And by the way, for those of you who like the glass jars, I'm giving away two large (gallon) and two medium (half gallon) to one lucky reader of this blog!
