Project Custom Pantry

After two years of struggling with storage space in our existing pantry, we moved the pantry renovation to the top of our "Never ending honey-do-list". We started out with a common looking pantry with utility wire shelving hidden behind a set of bi-fold doors. But after a little "sweat equity" we transformed the pantry into a custom built-in with adjustable wooden shelves, drawer sliders, and the best part of all, all of the storage that we could ask for! (We're also working on a series of tutorials where we share the plans of how we built the cabinet. Here's the first set of plans: http://www.thediyvillage.com/2013/05/build-a-pantry.html

old wine crates up cycled to rolling storage, crafts, repurposing upcycling, storage ideas

Project Rolling Storage

AEvery year our neighborhood has an annual yard sale. Being the typical hoarders DIYers that Matt and I are, instead of participating by selling we participate by buying!
I'm not sure if you remember me talking about neighbor Dave back around Halloween, but he loves wine. So much that he has lot's of wine crates! And as luck would have it this particular yard sale day Dave was selling 4 old wine crates for 10 bucks.
Needless to say I snatched them up.

Project Pantry

If you follow theDIYvillage on Instagram or Facebook you have probably seen us working on our pantry! Our pantry had two normal bi-fold doors that left about 2' of space above the doors unusable! I dont know about you but wasted pantry space is a no no! So we did what any normal couple would do and gutted it! Currently my kitchen table is serving as our pantry with hopes that we someday finish this project ...
