When we first bought the house, the former owner was using this room for a small office. So I just had it in my head that it was an office and that's how we first used it. When we replaced some of the carpeting it got recarpeted. But after a while I realized it wasn't a very good office. It was pretty small and had only one tiny window.
So I got the brilliant idea to change it into a pantry. It's right off the kitchen and plenty big enough for a walk in pantry. It's pretty much a hodge podge of shelves and stuff that we had around the house and garage. So it isn't pretty.
Someday I want to remove the carpet (who has carpet in a pantry?) and put built in shelving all the way around the room. Someday it will look really nice. Right now it's very functional. And cleaner and more organized than it was yesterday. So here it is before we tackled it.
And here it is after.
Yea, I know, I have a lot of small appliances. But with all this room I can have a lot of small appliances and still have room for food. I'm so used to having a lot of room I don't know what I would do without it. So, yes my pantry isn't very pretty, but I love it.
