I’ve been trying to re-arrange my pantry for the past three days. (Well, it’s not really the pantry, more of the maid’s room.) So far, it has been quite a feat because it’s not easy to ‘train’ my two male housemates (read: my husband and my brother) to use it properly. After all, it became a bodega since our kasambahay left last summer. So it’s easy to just dump things in there.
I found some online inspirations for my new and improved pantry.
1. The OC Pantry
Okay, this is probably too clean and I may not be able to achieve this in a million years. But I like the way this pantry is organized. And I think the wire basket for the old newspaper is lovely.
2. The Indusrial Chic Pantry
Now, this is more like me. Saving the rustic sliding door from the junkyard and re-using it as a pantry door is a great (and green) idea. I also love the chalkboard-inspired wall.
3. The French Country Pantry
In the end, this is the one I really liked. I love the use of natural materials– like the baskets and terracotta pot– for storage.
Hopefully, I will be able to finish my little project before a new kasambahay moves in. Weird but I really hope it’s not that soon.
