We are very lucky to have a nice sized kitchen but with so many gadgets, utensils, and cooking tools it's often hard to find what you are looking for easily. Check out our utensil stand and cooking drawer. Impossible to easily find anything...
And so with my newly cleared wall in the pantry I knew just what we needed! A pegboard in the pantry!!! It sounds a little far fetched but wait until you see the end result!
2 foot by 4 foot piece of pegboard
the empty wall in the pantry...
a nifty little box of pegboard accessories (including mounting spacers) $11 at Home Depot
2 quick coats of chalkboard paint... since I already had it out! Makes labeling super easy though!
A quick wipe down (while hubby recounted his love of erasing chalkboards in grade school)
To mount, you use the spacers and basically screw it into the wall. We used 12 spacers. The package only came with 4 so make sure to buy extras. Also, it is helpful to glue the spacers to the back of the pegboard and then screw them in if you are working in a tight space or using a large pegboard. Otherwise, you are trying to contort your hand behind the board to place the spacers!
Hanging and ready to load it up!
We moved this nifty little gadget to the other wall. It holds your plastic grocery bags for easy storage and access. We have one in the pantry downstairs and one upstairs in the laundry room. A definite must have!
