After creating decorative organizing boxes with Mod Podge for my pantry, I decided to go at it again and finish everything that I started. You can click on the link for details of how I actually made the boxes. Today I'm just sharing the really final, finished product with you. :)
The longer boxes that stick out from the shallow metal shelving units are tuna boxes from Costco. I have absolutely no compunction about standing there in the store, emptying the wrapped 12-packs of tuna onto the next shelf, and taking the empty boxes. I even got my mom to do it!
The shorter boxes are Quaker oatmeal packet boxes (Fernando likes them for a quick breakfast, and Costco had them on sale for an excellent price). I cut them down, and cut out the slot on the front for easy reach-in capability.
I labeled my boxes very generically, in case I stock up on different items. Right now, a lot of what's in that box below on the left is spices. I don't know how I acquired so many! I just love Penzey's Spices!!
You can tell I love blue. I have tons of various blue scrapbook paper (12x12") that I was able to cull from for these pretty boxes. Barring a real pantry (meaning real shelves instead of metal), I love my beautifully organized pantry!
