I don't have before pictures, but trust me, it was bad. I think I have never seen anything like this before, I'll save you the details. But I could see beyond all that mess. It took some decreasing, major cleaning, one coat of primer and 3 coats of paint. It had these metal doors??? and that's the first thing that came off. I wanted to be able to see what I was looking for because those cubbies really hold a lot.
The actually groceries are to the left, you really can't see much of that. What I wanted to feature was the clever way I found to hide the water heater tank. I had this little shelving unit, and it was perfect. I did add some casters, so that it can easily be moved out of the way. I also checked with our electrician to make sure on the distance. I did secure the shelving unit with two small latches on each side.
Not only is it a pleasure to walk in the pantry now and see my cute baking supplies, but it's functional too. Why keep hiding your pretties, put them out where you can see them and be inspired to bake something beautiful and delish
I loved my take on the Zebra cake, the sugar flower was beautiful. I need to get baking.
