Pantry Update






My pantry, lately, has become a bit of an eyesore. Its tired, worn and super messy!



I took some time this weekend to thoroughly clean it out. I am ashamed to say I came away with a trash bag full of empty boxes, expired food and stale crackers. {Its one thing to get the kids to put things away, quite another to get the boxes closed securely!}

I even found an empty juice pouch....really?!

Once I got it all cleaned out I decided that it needed a bit of a refurbish. One that time and money could handle!

Each of the shelf edges were wearing through the cheapy finish on them.


 I decided to take some decorative tape, {washi type} to finish off the edges. {I think mine is Scotch brand~more inexpensive}




All I did to prep the edges was to clean them well and let them dry. The tape adheres securely.



As a side note, I love using open baskets to empty out those packages into. All the snacks are together and are handy. I even use a basket in my fridge for all those sticks of butter.

The edges look more finished and hopefully distract you from the poor finish on the inside of the cabinet!


Copper approves!

I even added some tape to frame out my chalkboards.



Will pretty tape help you keep your pantry organized? Probably not! Will it look cute anyways, definitely! 


Thanks for stopping by!
