DIY Pantry

7 Materials
3 Days

When my husband and I moved into our new place, we didn’t have a pantry like we did in our last rental.. so we needed to make something work! This is by far the most practical pantry I have had.




and MDF boards


2X4s and plywood used for the frame.


2 plywood shelves and two MDF board shelves


The door was made of trim and MDF boards. With heavy duty shelf shutting hinges.

Tape off

I taped off where I didn’t want the paint to touch.

Chalk paint from lowes

I used valspar chalk paint from Lowe’s

4 coats of chalk paint

My kids love chalk! So I felt this was a good way to use up the space on the pantry! I also love the use for groceries and to do lists.

The quality of this chalk paint is amazing! I’m super impressed! I would recommended the Lowe’s valspar chalk paint brand!! And I used a roller to apply the paint.

Big deep shelves

I wanted this pantry to accommodate big bags of flower, and Costco boxes of bulk items ! It could definitely be more organized, but for me it never stays organized long lol.
