The painting of the laundry room is finished! Woo Hoo!
We decided to create a pantry area in the laundry room as this room is just off the kitchen. The room is long and narrow. My biggest regret about this house is that I didn't take before pictures! More pictures to come of the laundry/pantry update later.
My amazing and handy husband built these shelves. We painted them white and lined the shelves. We love this house, but old homes are not known for having lots of storage. We needed pantry storage!
The shelf below is across from it. It holds the canned goods. We live in the country, so it isn't very practical to run to the store every time you get ready to cook. I shop every other week and prepare our meals from what we have here. I maintain basic items in my pantry. There is a lot of freedom in that principle! Meals can be prepared quickly and easily, there is a variety too, but most importantly it enables me to remain within budget!
There is still work to do in the new pantry area, but the painting is done!
