My Organized Pantry

 My pantry is a jack of all trades!
 It is a food pantry, a dish pantry and flower arranging pantry, depending on what door you open.

Behind Door #1 is our food storage.
I like to corral extra drinks, pet food and miscellaneous food in baskets to keep everything looking neat and organized.  Cookbooks and small appliances also live in this cupboard.

Baskets make everything look better, don't you agree?

Between Door #1 and Door #2 is a wet bar and wine refrigerator.
The glass bistro shelving is an opportunity to display some of my glassware collection.
The sink also allows me to arrange flowers which brings me to Door #2!

Behind Door #2 are all the vases, flower pots, moss...

...and candles and candlesticks.
I put the candles in a shallow wicker tray so they're easy to see.

Likewise, the glass vases look better when they're all corralled on a tray.
I love bringing home flowers and having everything at my fingertips, as well as the sink close by to help create arrangements.

Behind Door #3 is where I store my dishes.
Not all my dishes, but a large percentage of chargers, majolica and miscellaneous dish ware.
Sets of flatware sit on the floor.

In between Door #3 and 4 is currently a bar cart, but eventually it will be replaced with a desk.

And finally, behind Door # 4 are more dishes and glassware.
This cupboard is still a work in progress, but I made it as neat as possible for this post.

This room has been my salvation!
It served as a temporary kitchen when ours was being remodeled.
But also, it allowed me a place to store so much of what I've collected over the years.
I've said many times, it was a major factor when we bought the house.

I love how it's just off the dining room, as well as the kitchen.
If we ever have a dinner party, the pantry room, wet bar or whatever you want to call it will come in very handy for creating a tablescape.

Dolores your pantry is beautiful, and beautifully organized. I love every detail. Anything woven always makes storage look more interesting in my opinion. So glad you joined us and shared your beautiful styling!

Thanks for opening up your doors and showing us the beauty that lies within. It was fun getting a peek inside and seeing all your pretty things. I too have a cabinet full of flower arranging supplies. Flowers do brighten a room and one's spirt.

LOVE ALL THE DOORS..............reminds me of a GAME SHOW way back when!!
YOU seem VERY ORGANIZED and I willNOT comment on the silver as mine is WORSE!!!

Now THIS is a pantry to covet! I can't believe how many different uses you've carved out of this space - and beautifully too! Thank you for sharing part of your lovely home!

Dolores, So love your butler's pantry room. It's a dream and those tall closet with shelves are everything!! If I could design such a space I would. It is in the perfect place there between the kitchen and dining. Your food pantry is pretty also with all the baskets..I have to work harder on mine. So much inspiration here! Great getting to know you and see your beautiful space! xo

annie said...

What a dream to have all this space to organize! I love all your collections!

Ashley said...

What an incredible space with a spot for everyting. I am so jealous! But, I have to wonder: why would you replace a bar cart with a desk ;) Drinks are much more fun than work!

Ron said...

I absolutely love this organized space. You have such great pieces.

Sandra Sallin said...

Well, it looks like I need to go into my storage pantry and organize everything. It's kinda organized but not ready for photographs organized. It looks so soothing. So thanks for the inspiration.

You're right, baskets do make all the difference ... I absolutely love the look. I'm also a huge admirer of your wet bar ... that sink! And, your glassware. Beautiful. xo
