Pantry Remodel

We have this closet on our landing that was not at all functional and was ugly. My wife had been asking for a pantry since we moved in so I got to work
Removed pole, shelving.
Primed and painted all of the wood paneling.
Added shelving and peel & stick wallpaper from Target.
Installed a few rollouts for cans, etc...
Finished pantry. Of course, during regular usage, our new pantry is evolving into the perfect food storage solution.

Suggested materials:

  • Primer, paint  (Home Depot)
  • Melamine  (Home Depot)
  • Cabinet grade birch plywood  (Home Depot)

    I wondered about the trim around the edge. How did you change it? I can't see it in the photos. The top of the closet usually has space above the opening and you did something with that. Also did you change the trim on the sides? Thank you.

      I purchased White Melamine Edge Banding Preglued from Amazon and simply ironed it on the edges - Im assuming that is what you are referring to.

    what did you use for the rolling drawers and the peg board that holds the shelves?

    Love how this closed has been partitioned off with shelves on one side and slide out drawers on the other. Definitely a great way to utilize this space.
