Pantry Shelves

I had a bee in my bonnet about more storage space in the kitchen. I mentally planned out several options before deciding that the entire wall could become shelving. It took some time to convince my husband that it indeed was possible and what’s more that it wouldn’t be a huge undertaking.

I was right. He finished it in about a week. We bought boards at the madereria (wood shop) which he sanded down, a few boards each day. Then he installed them and attached the entire shebang to the wall. After which, he and my son took turns with the stain. And VOILA! 

During the construction project, I also happened on these lovely tiered crates to store the fruit and give me just a little more counter space.

Both the shelving and the mini-crates also have the advantage of minimizing the food that the mice can get at. We’ve been having a bit of a mouse problem. More about that in a future post!
