I have a nice kitchen now but unfortunately no pantry; so I had to get creative and come up with a pantry in a small space.
If you have a two story home, you may have a space just like mine, you know that big almost seems like wasted space under the stairs? In our last house, that area became a storage spot for winter coats, school supplies and just junk.
In my current house, it is our pantry.
I got a big heavy duty metal shelf that we placed in the under the stairs closet.
A friend saw a grocery store that was going out of business was selling the can sorters, so I jumped at the chance to get one.
I also added a small bookshelf, just a cheap $15 one at the end of closet area for extra food.
Our stairs curve, and so under the small area to the right (not pictured) is where our long term food storage is. It isn't the ideal pantry, my husband calls it the dungeon, but it works and I now have a pantry.
What creative use of space have you done in your home or seen someone do?
