I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Here is what took place to get to the super end!
I cleaned everything out, wiped down the walls with a damp rag and began sanding and painting the shelves. I thought the paint on the walls looked fine, so I just painted the shelves. I sanded each shelf just some on both sides, to get off some chipping paint spots. I used just a white paint with the primer already mixed in. Super easy and convenient. Got all the paint and supplies from Home Depot. I am a Home Depot shopper and they didn't pay me to say that one!
There is everything out and the glue gun isn't plugged in! My little one loves to pick up everything.
This is the ribbon I used on the shelves. Just a little detail that I wanted to see. I cut the ribbon so it would just fit around two ends of the shelves and hot glued it on. No reason to go all the way around the shelf where no one can see it.
Little details. Got this tray at Hobby Lobby for half off! Got the
idea from thesunnysideupblog.com. Awesome!
The cupcake holder jar used to be a pickle jar. No pickle smell now! Got this idea at Tidymom.com. Her jar was nicer than mine! The cookie cutters are in a vase that I have not been using. I like it!
I made my own labels with leftover ribbon to match shelves, scrapbook paper and my label maker.
One last view! It was worth every second! It does take time to organize, but it is a wonderful feeling to walk by my pantry and see this really pretty view. Everyday!
