Reorganizing my pantry

It has actually been a few weeks since I did this but I am just now getting around to 
showing it to you.

I didn't take a before picture, but trust me it wasn't pretty.

All the shelves were lined on the back wall.  There were 4 big shelves and 
1 skinny shelf on the bottom where I put some extra Pyrex dishes.

I pitched the idea to my husband that I wanted to take those out and make them
skinnier and L shaped, so that I had shelves on 2 walls instead on one.

Let's just say he didn't take to the idea.

If I heard it once, I heard it a hundred times, you won't like it.

You are going to lose space.

Blah, blah, blah.

So, I said just do it, I will take full responsibility if I don't like it.

All the while knowing I was gonna like it.  It was him that needed the convincing.

So, I got up on Saturday morning and emptied EVERYTHING out of the cabinet.


I use to keep kids so, I still had my first aid posters on the door, just in case someone got choked or something. 

Mr. Wonderful came up with a way to use the braces that were in there already for the back shelves and we headed to Lowe's to get some brackets for the side shelves.

I painted it so it would look all clean and new.

And Voila!!!

A pantry reorganized!!!  Mr. Wonderful was excited to see that we had enough room to move the spices from another cabinet into this one.

I know I need some baskets for the rice and beans, but trust me, it is an amazing improvement.

Also the 2 white trash cans are for our recyclables.  

PS.  I took the CPR poster's down after I took the picture.  I just hope nobody gets choked.
