Pantry Makeover For Spring {and a Home Depot Giveaway!}

We’ve had lots of fun things happening around here lately, and one of them being my mom’s new pretty green pantry! I’ve said it time and time again, but paint makes the world of difference!

I SO wish we had that ROOM for our pantry. Geesh.

Check out the before.



Sorry for the horrible before photos. I think my iphone takes worse and worse pictures as time goes on.

We started out by clearing everything out obviously, then wiping down the shelves with some trusty Bounty paper towels and cleaning the floor with this handy Swiffer Sweeper. All supplies that we bought at The Home Depot.

The clean shelves can now store the Gain flings too!

After everything was clean we painted with a really pretty olive green called Tansy by Sherwin-Williams. My mom used that color in her old house too.

Then we added a few pieces of art that she had back on the wall.


Here are a few more pics.

    You’ve inspired me! That’s it! I’m going to go get a blue that makes my heart soar and paint my otherwise blah laundry room and I may see if I can create a small pantry out of a under-the-stairs closet in my kitchen. Life is too short not to enjoy all of the little things surrounding us, including color.

  130. I envy that large pantry. To have the extra fridge it there instead of the garage would be icing on the cake. Love the color combo! Paint makes me happy and I love changing it! This inspires me to paint mine. Now I just need to find the time!

    I pinned that beautiful makeover! Hopefully it inspires people to beautify their pantry! Yours now your mom’s, I will start calling you the pantry queen! Nice job as always Emily!
