Kitchen Pantry Decor: How to maximize space and storage on a budget. Here’s how to get the most of the pantry you’ve got!
The Kitchen Pantry is finally done! I am so glad to be able to share this project with you!
Kitchen Pantry Decor
Kitchen pantry’s are hard to come by these days. Many homes have larger kitchens and the old fashioned pantry harder to find. We happen to be in an old house with a smaller kitchen that has less storage. However, our pantry is HUGE.
This is what our kitchen looks like. We recently repainted and I love the new aqua color. As you can see we don’t have a ton of cabinet space, but we do have a nice big walk in pantry. Actually, we have two of them.
The first pantry, is a pass through to the other one. It is a very awkward layout, and when we purchased the house we had big ideas of remodeling the entire kitchen. Alas, I don’t think we will ever get around to it. It is a much larger project than we could have anticipated.
The Walk Through Pantry
This part of the kitchen pantry is what we call the “walk through” pantry. It’s a relatively small space that we use for extra storage off the kitchen. The wall at the back is the actual pantry area. Note: The wall will be removed soon for even more space.
See that green floor? I can’t wait to get rid of it! More on that later.
These open shelves are mainly used for our Isagenix products, vitamins, shakes and so forth. You can read more about that post here. I have plans for my hubby to build a nice barn door and more shelves for this space. He just doesn’t know it yet. Ha!
The back kitchen pantry
Around the wall in the back end of the pantry we have more shelves. It’s a bit of a hike from the kitchen to get there, but it’s worth it. We have floor to ceiling shelves for all of our large cooking pans and bulk food storage that doesn’t fit into the few cabinets in the kitchen. In my dreams we would have a wine bar and sink back here.
The Stenciled Pantry Wall
The stencil is Augusta Tile stencil from The Cutting Edge Stencils. I love the subtle pattern the aqua blue paint makes with the light background color. Our shelves were exactly 12″ apart so it was easy to stencil the wall behind the shelves without having to remove them. I used a foam brush with the stencil for a clean look. Last summer I used the same Augusta Tile stencil for a rustic sign that I made. Read that post here.
I will have more on how I organized this space soon! The pantry was not this clean when I started!

The other pantry wall has large wooden shelves that hold my cookbooks, wooden bowls, extra plates, etc. Many of these items I use for staging my food photos, and it’s nice to have a place to keep them nearby so I can grab them when needed.
And above the entire back pantry, is this huge hole in the ceiling. There used to be a stair case here. The former owners of our home removed the stairs and never repaired the hole. Who does that? This will be our next DIY project, coming soon!
