I feel like I should rename this blog to the Nanna Margie & Poppy Jack show – they have been coming up with so many awesome ideas while they are here. I swear my “poppy Jack To-do List” was nowhere near this long.
One of their suggestions, was to create solid shelves out of masonite to add to the top of the wire shelves that we currently call our pantry.
So we hit up the Orange on Saturday and had them make a few cuts so that we could fit the boards in the car and make the end cutting job a little easier.
So first things first…empty out all those shelves. Try to feign embarrasment at all the boxes that are out of date. Find a spot that is out of curious cat reach. Start removing & stacking pantry items. Figure out original spot is not quite
out of reach. Find new spot and continue.
Now its time to start cutting the boards. After a rough start, Poppy Jack found himself a mathematical genius to assist. Unfortunately the pencil turned out to be too distracting and Poppy Jack had to finish the job by himself.
Assumed mathematical genius was then placed in charge of monitoring the shelves (removed to make an initial template for the corner posts) and making sure that they did not try to run away and hide under the couch.
Add a small dash of adorable
contact paper (Target
– $5.99!) applied perfectly by Nanna Margie and there you have it! A quick, easy and fairly inexpensive (under $20) pantry re-do.
And the best part is all of my jars and cans sit up straight now
