When we moved into our home I noticed that we didn't have a pantry. Actually I knew it when we purchased this house, but I didn't mind it at the time. Well it's been a little over a year now and boy do I mind not having a pantry!

By the way, I did finish the cabinets!!! I will post them soon.

As you can see, I don't have much cabinet space. I have 3 boys and a husband so I need a lot more storage than what I have. So my solution is to turn my coat closet that is next to my kitchen and inside my dining room into a pantry. I mean really how many coats does five people have?

Maybe I should have cleaned it up a bit? Oh well too late! Yeah I stuff things in there when my husband tell me that "his" garage is becoming over crowded!

Do you see my DVF luggage tucked away in there? SWOON! Anyway... back to the topic at hand....I. WANT. A. PANTRY!!! Maybe like these:

OKAY, OKAY maybe like this one!

Yes this is it! There is not too much I'll have to do to replicate this pantry (just add more shelves). So once I finish the one I'm working on now, I'll move on to this. What is your next project?

***My first giveaway is coming tomorrow (hopefully) for my followers. So if there is anyone out there who have been following this blog but not following this blog you still have time! You can always follow when I post the giveaway, but why not do it now so I can "meet" you already?!!!***

Can't wait to see what you do with your closet. I have a semi-pantry that I would like to re-do, it is on my list.
