DIY blogger Chelsey Andrews and her husband created the cutest mini pantry you’ve ever observed. It’s a very clever storage solution for their little kitchen. It’s not only fairly practical, although. With its hand stamped wall pattern and sliding door, the pantry adds to the kitchen’s visual appeal, as well. Here’s how she built her mini pantry, including a clever remedy for developing shelves in a house with uneven floors. (And appear at the end of the report for the totally free downloadable kitchen poster you see in Chelsey’s kitchen.)
Our minor 950 sq. ft. property was constructed in 1920 and came with exactly 1 closet, in my daughter’s room (that doesn’t actually help with daily storage). Considering that incorporating a lot more room to our residence is not at present in our budget, we need to get creative with what we have.
There’s a small (seriously small) area in the kitchen that we made the decision to makeover and turn into the smallest of pantries. The area itself is 82 in. broad by 98 in. high and 8½ in. deep. This small spot in the kitchen has been a crazy catch-all for many years, especially following we extra an open bookcase that slowly turned into the room to throw random issues. Nicely, we got tired of that mess, and today I want to introduce you to our beautiful mini pantry!
Prepping the Space
Following we cleared out all the junk, we measured the space and got to developing our mini-pantry. We knew the pantry storage would want to be found on the correct side of the wall, given that there’s a door on the left. That door leads to our laundry room and is closed 95 percent of the time, so we weren’t too concerned about the sliding door acquiring in the way.
We washed the walls with soap and water and let them dry and then painted them.
I knew I desired most of the kitchen walls white, but I liked the notion of incorporating colour on this 1 cute wall behind our mini pantry. We made a decision to stamp the wall with handmade stamps.
I have been in Enjoy with the clementine stamped wall by A Stunning Mess, so I determined to make my very own edition. I produced the stamps out of a foam panel, a craft knife, a Dremel Rotary Tool, and utilizing the citrus illustration I created as a template.
You can head on more than to this publish if you want to see exactly how I created the stamps and the complete wall stamping/painting method. Plus, you can download the printable to make your own stamps for your wall at house. Perhaps alternatively of oranges you could make grapefruit, limes, or lemons?
The Pantry Door and Help
Next up was to uncover the excellent door for this project. We knew we needed an old door, but we had to locate it first.
We went to a regional store in Portland, Oregon that sells previous constructing supplies, The Rebuilding Center. We found a solid wood door with hardware dated �″ and the coolest octagonal-shaped window (I believe the window was possibly extra later). We loved it.
We employed a one/2 gallon of BEHR Premium Plus Ultra Botanical Tint to paint the door. The window trim was painted white.
When our door was painted, we could start off to construct the sliding door assistance. This area commenced with just a flat wall, so we essential to build out a support to have some room to generate this mini pantry.
To figure out the height we attached the slider hardware to the door and measured from the bottom of the door to the put in rollers. We added an inch to this measurement so the door would float just over the floor.
This measurement gave us the height we necessary to location the assistance beams at (the slider rail would go appropriate in the center of the assistance).
My husband installed two four x four – eight ft. fir beams at the height we required. To make this secure, he found the studs in the wall and utilised three 1/two x 6 in. hex lag screws to install the first beam into the wall. Then he screwed the second beam into the very first beam with three far more 1/2 x 6 in. hex lag screws.
We used one one/8 in. thick – two x 4 ft. undertaking board and 1/2 wood nails to cover up the front/bottom of the exposed beams and the hex lag bolts. We painted the task boards white, then put in the sliding door rail onto the completed assistance beams, following the solution instructions.
Our authentic thought for the area over the sliding door was to use it as an open shelf, but we produced a last minute choice to flip the room into a mini cupboard. It’s a extremely small area, but it’s ideal for all individuals random products we don’t use very typically (like giant platters).
To do this my husband measured the cupboard room and used 3 1 in. x 3 in. x eight ft. furring strip boards to construct the cupboard door frame. When he was accomplished constructing it, he utilized wood screws to set up the frame right over the assistance/sliding door hardware.
Just like the track assistance, we utilized one/8 in. thick – two x 4 ft. venture board and one/two wood nails to cover up the front of the cupboard frame, and used wood putty along the cracks. When the putty was dry, we painted the total thing white.
We produced our own cupboard doors using two 21/32 in. x 24 in. x six ft. edge-glued boards. We lower them to the size we needed, painted them white, and then set up with 6 self-closing full-overlay hinges (two hinges per door).
The Pantry Shelves
When the support beam was completed, we acquired to operate on the entertaining element: the pantry shelves. This was a bit of a challenge given that we realized our previous house is not ideal. The height from floor to ceiling is distinct everywhere. We’ll just get in touch with this “old property charm” for now. This tiny “old residence charm” meant we essential a couple more inches of pipe height on a single side of shelving, and a couple inches much less on the other side. When we figured out all the odd measurements, we could finalize our shelf design and style.
There are a ton of distinct ways we could have set up these shelves and it took us really a even though to figure out precisely what we wished to do. With a bit of trial and error, we came up with our shelving strategy. We looked via our cupboards and measured all the products we needed to go in our mini pantry. We figured out that most canned products will match in a 6 in. high area, and most wine bottles/olive oils want about 14 in. With people two measurements being our tallest and shortest shelf heights, we just picked out random heights from there.
Did you know that The Property Depot will reduce and thread pipe for you? It’s just a small value for each and every minimize. We purchased two three/four in. x 10 ft. galanized steel pipes for shelf assistance and our neighborhood Property Depot keep reduce them up into all the sizes we required.
When the pipes have been ready, we prepped the boards for the shelves. We employed three one x six in. x 8 ft. widespread boards for the shelves. My husband cut the boards out to the lengths we necessary, then he utilised a 1 in. hole noticed drill bit to drill holes into our shelves about 3 inches in from every edge and one hole proper in the center (do this to all the boards except for the board that will be at the bottom of the shelving technique). These holes are for placing the pipes by way of. We painted the boards white right after almost everything was cut and drilled.
There are numerous different approaches we could have put collectively a pipe shelving unit, but we found this was the very best design for us. We chose to use galvanized flanges for our shelf supports. The flange can be put in onto the bottom of the shelf employing wood screws, centering the flange hole in excess of the wood holes that we minimize out earlier. Then, each pipe cutting can screw into the prime and bottom of the flange hole.
Installing the Shelves
one. Starting from the bottom, we installed four flanges into the floor and screwed the pipe pieces into the set up floor flanges.
2. Subsequent, we screwed on 4 flanges into the set up floor pipes (the flat side of these flanges must be on prime). Place a board on best of these flanges and use wood screws to secure the board to the flanges.
three. Spot the up coming board on best of the set up board and use a pencil to mark the center of every single drilled hole in the board. Use wood screws to install 3 flanges, centered, over your marked pencil spots.
4. Screw in the next set of pipes into the put in flanges, through the board holes, and screw three flanges onto the pipes (the flat side of these flanges should be on best).
five. Spot the subsequent board on the flanges and use wood screws to attach the flanges to the following board.
6. Repeat measures three through 5 right up until your shelving technique to the top!
seven. Use wood screws to set up the ultimate 3 flanges into the bottom of the assistance.
Tip: if you get to the top of your shelves and you’re off by a couple inches, don’t be concerned! You can usually use a pipe extension (also acknowledged as a coupling)!
Supplies I Employed for This Task
My husband and are undoubtedly teaching ourselves how to makeover our house, so it’s a great deal of trial and error. Don’t let the mistakes deliver you down, understand from them and maintain going!
