Old Metal Cabinet Turned Into Pantry

My kitchen is seriously small, with super high ceiling and (for me at least) unreachable upper cabinets. I had one small space where I could put any storage, so I turned this tall, metal locker into a pantry.
Metal Pantry
I got this cabinet at a local thrift store for $20.
My first lesson in how gross refinishing can be!
After 5 HOURS of cleaning. The rust removal and sealing was another couple of days.
This space between my cabinets and stairs is 17 inches. The cabinet was perfect at 14 1/2.
I got the metal egg basket on the clearance shelf at Target for $3.
Shelves are lined with polka-dot contact paper.
The door also doubles as a message center for my kids!
