DIY Corner Pantry


I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this but we were using a stand up clothes armoire as a simple DIY pantry in our kitchen because we didn't have enough space to hold all our food stuffs. Hey, you do what you need to do. And I needed more space for my canned goods. My husband, Roy, who's not a carpenter, finally decided he was going to make us a pantry. It would be small and in the corner, but it would be floor to ceiling.

This pantry is part of our Outdated Kitchen Transformation. This is the corner its going in. We'd already removed the wall paper and painted it.

The framing begins! By the way Roy used Googles free SketchUp program to design the pantry ahead of time.

    Did I miss the size of the corner needed and is there enough space to put paper products on top shelf

    • Hi Debi! The size is on the downloadable plan but everyone will have a different space. So it's mainly mean't as "inspiration" with how we did ours.

    beautiful!! Since you probably won't lend out your husband, are you able to share your husband's google sketchup drawing? I'd like to use it as a template and just adjust dimensions for my corner. I'm not too familiar with using these programs, so a cheat start would really help!!! Thanks for sharing your project (we dont all have crafty husbands like yours!)
