{ at } home today....Laundry/Pantry Room

I wanted to share with you what I have been working on.  I decided to tackle our laundry / pantry which was in desperate need of attention! 
 We have really neglected this space since it's behind a door and you can just shut it when company comes over. :) 

here is our laundry room before...see it's a mess.  The big pantry box is from our old kitchen which we bought at  ikea 11 years ago..still good nothing wrong with it but I just couldn't find anything in it!  I found spices and food from 2008! YIKES...see what I mean. 

This cabinet is good for storing dishes, party goods and such but not food in my opinion.
it will soon be up for grabs! lol 
selling at garage you know these big cabinets are $300+! YIKES that's a whole lot of money for a box.

don't remember what we paid but not that....

here is everything cleared out....we added baseboard to match the rest of the house...i think my camera is about to die on me..all my pics are really grainy...uggh 

we had these extra cabinets in our kitchen  & the counter top{ikea circa 2002}

FYI-for the money Ikea cabinets are a pretty decent product.

In 2007 the laminate started peeling & cracking & since they had 10 year warranty on them we called them out & they gladly replaced all the drawer & door fronts with the pic below{solid wood}!  They really stand by their products which is great!!  The doors well we never put them up because we started our renovation and since have been in boxes in the attic!  I recently went to ikea and saw them on last chance {being discontinued}
my taste has since changed and I'll probably be selling them as well.

getting organized

this was in our old master bedroom closet and now temporally being used to hold our utility products and such..

we are going to put in shelf's here and this will soon be gone but serves it's purpose for the time being!

I plan on getting cabinet doors made or just have these painted in "fieldstone gray"
then, add a zinc counter top or stainless
maybe paint?
definitely a new cover for the ironing board

hope this post inspires you to get busy on clearing out your pantry! 

I will post more pics as I complete!

Have a great day!

*not affiliated with Ikea tho If they would like to do a kitchen reno I'd gladly accept!!  :)
