Pantry shelves

This is one of my first projects done without a ‘plan’. I am just learning to use my tools and was very intimidated by the table saw. I wanted to turn an overcrowded closet off the kitchen into a pantry. I bought pine panels at a box store, used scrap 1×3 s for the shelf supports, some paint and voila.

Nice job, and welcome to LJ. Is ti going to stay so nice and organized? We have a similar pantry, with shelves, but slightly smaller. I’d take a picture, but if I open the door, stuff falls out. Remodeling it is on the to-do list ;)

It’s a little more crowded, but still organized. The shine hasn’t worn off yet. We’re having our basement finished, so that started a whole domino effect of getting things in order.

Now if I open the Tupperware cupboard, I’d be buried!

Have a good one.

This is a project I have been promising my wife i would do for a while now. we have the wire shelling and it sags with caned food and some times things fall or get stuck between the wires (It sux). I love your solution because it is simple and effective. Nice work!
P.S. I laughed when i saw the dog food container, we have the same one in our closet pantry. :-)

Thanks Ben,

I’m sure your wife would be happy with these. A detail that is not in the picture is the “stair steps” I made afterward for the canned goods. I just took leftover pieces of shelving making sure that each step was wide enough to fit a large can of tomatoes or pumpkin. I glued and clamped them together, slapped on some paint and put them in the back of one of the shelves. I was going to rout them, but thankfully didn’t bother. Sometimes a job just has to get done…. (hint hint…)
