Part THREE of a SIX part series revealing this pantry one shelf at a time. Click on photos to enlarge!
Her biggest frustrations were not knowing what was in her pantry and when she did know it was in there ‘somewhere’ she had difficulty finding, removing, using and replacing items on a day to day basis. She was ready to totally update her kitchen because she believed the fault was in the SIZE of her kitchen.
Here is a BEFORE photos of Sharyn’s Pantry for you to review.
Let’s examine the SECOND shelf!
DURING We removed everything from this shelf and as it was one of the best shelves in her pantry in terms of access (it was at eye level, which is prime level), we decided to install a few extra layers so everything would be visable and accessible.
We added one back step shelf and two step shelves, one on either side of the pantry creating a U shape. This gave us two levels to store jars and cans. The bottom layer was to store spares or less frequently used items and the top layer was for items that would be accessed all the time. One long container housed all the daily spreads like jam and vegemite and a few other long containers hold everyday items.
Now that the second shelf is organised we will move down to the third shelf. The series of 6 blog posts will show you how we reorganised and maximised each shelf so you can replicate it at home. Be sure to see all 6 posts:
