ORGANIZED PANTRY USING IKEA CONTAINERS AND BASKETS
As a family of two living in a 1,400 sq. ft. house, we feel blessed to have at least a 24″x32″ pantry. Learn how I maximize the space in my pantry with Ikea containers like Korken, 365+ and the Gabbig baskets.
I started this project by converting a bi-fold door into a swing one. I thought it would be a great idea for the pantry to gain those few extra inches in the opening. The conversion was super easy. I just added 4 brackets to the back of the door and a magnet on top to be able to close it.
This was before.
I created a “pantry” sign with a picture frame I already had, a black sheet of craft paper and I hand wrote the letters with awater based paint white sharpie.
I also added a hook to hang my apron.
I wanted to labeled them but all the tutorials. I found an easy way to do it…using water based paint white sharpie!
All you have to do is hand write on the jars. I love the sharpie because the paint resists daily touching without peeling off, but it comes off easily if I use a scrub.
I decided to purchase 9 baskets to be able to store the items by category—e.g., breads, breakfast items, snacks, chips, canned food, etc.
I added labels that I hung with some twine to make sure we remembered where everything was stored.
I also hung the Closet Maid 2 Tier Wall Rack on the left wall to add extra storage. I was able to fit all the glass jars on the wall and leave the shelves for baskets only. Put the baskets inside and enjoy your new organized pantry.
