Coat Closet Made Into a Simple Walkin Pantry


This was a simple closet near the kitchen, that my husband, made into a needed pantry for me. Now, keep in mind, he is not a carpenter what so ever. Here are the photos of the process. It was done in less than one day. Including painting it first. Don't know where I would of put everything without this pantry. I am proud of his effort in doing this. First time for many additional changes for our new home.

Got the walls all patched, and ready for paint.

Went with a very light blue, and chose the white shelving.  Love that I can adjust the shelve to the height I need. Each side was made in differant depth.  The sides were 4 inches, 6 inches, and the back wall 12 inches.

Back shelfing view. Hard to even see the color of paint.  Looking great so far.

    This is fantastic! What a great idea to use the closet next to the kitchen. Hey, it makes sense. ;)

    Wonderful idea! We have something similar in the guest room. We didn't leave space for our guests to hang up their clothes, though.
