Several months ago I came across these glass canisters and vinyl's and
thought I could DIY my own set of canisters. For years I have been wanting
a set of canisters, but didn't want to take up all my counter space. When you
have limited counter space like I do you have to be creative with it. This might
be the perfect solution; I get my canisters and I'll store them in the pantry.
Here are the vinyl's I ordered online and bought the canisters at Walmart and Target. One store has one
size and not the other so needless to say I made several trips. The canisters started at $4.97 and up.
I forgot to mention my pantry needed some work. You think? My goal was to
reorganize, de-clutter, and hopefully make it look like the House of Smith's pantry.
My pantry is the work horse in my kitchen. It stores food, pots and pans, pet food,
and paper goods. You name it and it's probably in there. With the lack of counter
space I also lack in cabinetry. Making over my pantry was a long time coming.
Instead of painting the entire pantry I decided to get creative and use 12 x 12 scrapbook paper to line the
back wall in between the shelves and side walls. It was an inexpensive way to add color and pattern,
but not a permanent solution. To attach the scrapbook paper I used double sided tape. Since I didn't
use scrapbook paper on the top and bottom sections of the pantry I painted it with some cream
colored paint I had on hand.
I bought new shelf liner and cut it to size.
Don't you just love the look of my new canisters with the cool vinyls? I love how they turned out and I
must say my hubby is quite the vinyl guy now. Thanks honey!
These spice racks are great for organizing can goods. Now I know exactly how much I have on hand
and not 12 cans of green beans. All of my "back stock" is now stored away and pulled out when I need
These wire baskets are from Target and were about $8.99 each. Not cheap, but they fit the space without
being too bulky and sticking out the pantry. They worked to store some of the catch all stuff and bulky
paper goods. I made the chalkboard tags and attached them to the baskets. It makes it look so organized;
What do you think? I couldn't be more happier with how it turned out and
how organized it is. I hope I've inspired you to start on your pantry.
