I am so lucky that our house has two pantries! One for food and a smaller one that I use to store all of my cookware (you can see how I organize my food pantry here). I spent many years battling lower cabinets and trying to fit everything in them just right. And then when I wanted to get something out, it was a whole new battle! I am so grateful for this space in my house!
Now I will say that this space is definitely in need of some TLC....I guess the previous owners decided to add the top shelf at a later time and didn't match it up to the other shelves. There are nail holes, bad dry wall spots, and a whole lot of painting that needs to be done! I wrestled with whether or not to share this with you before I got all of those things repaired or not, but what the heck, here it goes (just don't look too closely!)
Here's a look at each shelf:
Right now I have 2 different sets of cookware, and yes, it drives me crazy that they don't all match! But they have to work for now. I dream of the day when I will open this pantry and everything will match :)
I must say that two of my favorite organizers ever are in this pantry. The skillet and lid holders are amazing!! You NEED them if you don't already have them :) You can find them almost anywhere and they are usually only a few dollars, but make such a HUGE difference!
Here's another look at the whole thing. The right side is just where I hang aprons.
So there you have it. I absolutely love having this pantry and can never have another house without one! Do you have a good spot to keep all of your cookware, or have you found a good solution for those dreaded lower cabinets?! I would love to see how you keep everything organized! Thanks for stopping by today!
