Pantry Business.

When we moved in our house, the pantry (or what should have been - it is a large closet off the kitchen) housed an archaic washer and dryer as well as our HVAC and water heater. Our very first project in this house was to move the washer and dryer so we'd have a real pantry.

We put it together and slid it into the pantry. I picked up some baskets at Big Lots for $1/each and organized all our dry food by type. Here's the result:
We were also able to put the recycling and dog food in the pantry with the switch up which means our new kitchen won't have that out in it. Every little upgrade counts!!
