• {Decorating Resolution #2} Pantry, Closet, Organization & Chalkboard Paint!

    Posted on January 15, 2012 by in Beach Cottage Decor

    Wow, I must admit that my decorating resolution #2 has been tough.  Tough because I’m focused on decorating resolution #1 AND the fact that I must show you the horrible condition of some of my closets.  2012 is all about being real so I snapped a couple of photos of the interior of my kitchen pantry and the worst of our hall closets.  I seriously don’t know how it happened and they have been cleaned and organized numerous times yet they continue to pile up, get stuff shoved into them in a disorderly fashion…ugh.

    So let’s start with the exterior of the pantry. You may recall that we repainted our kitchen white last Spring but we never got around to doing anything with the pantry.  My resolution is to paint the door with chalkboard paint so that I don’t have to have notes with magnets stuck all over the fridge.

    Here’s the pantry door as it looked this morning…pretty boring, huh?

    This is what I’d like it to look like, nothing too fancy, but it will really finish off the kitchen.

    This is the hubby’s favorite door and he thinks we could create it with some scrap lumber!




    You can see what we’re going for on the outside, but what are we going to do about this on the inside of the kitchen pantry?

    This is what I’d like my pantry to look like.  A bit better, isn’t it? Jars, baskets, wood crates, organization – YES!





    But what about this calamity of a linen closet!?! It is stuffed with table clothes, candles, light bulbs, a sewing machine, a navigational chart – eh gads!

    Here’s some photographic ideas for this fiasco.
