I have a really big pantry. But it's shared space for plastic ware, things I am selling, and more. So when I got tired of not finding things in drawers, in cupboards and such, I did this.
Shadow Box Pantry Help.
With the help of a shadow box and four cans, I now can find all those little packages and packets of food I had all over the kitchen!
I took four veggie cans for support. The ones in the back had food in them so I balanced the weight on the front ones with rocks. I wanted them all to be stable.
I had been meaning to do something amazing with this shadow box...we have all been there...and as it turned out that is just what I did.
It occurred to me that the largest box area should be in the back for the biggest things. So I flipped it around. This box is 13" by 2" by 17". The bottom of the box has a little lip around it so I was able to set the box over the cans so they wouldn't slide around if bumped.
I sat the box on top of the cans and went to work filling it. It was like everything I had in my kitchen fit perfectly in these spaces. I love this and have found it so very useful I wanted to share.
I have gravy mix, snack bars, coconut oil packets, instant cereal, broth mix, salad dressing, apple cider drinks and even gelatin mixes. All in one place and so easy to get to!! You can find these shadow boxes in a lot of cool thrift stores.
