Transform a Small Builder Grade Pantry With Custom Built-In Shelving & Storage For a Budget-Savvy Price
Y’all we made it… like barely but we did!
If you have been following along with our little corner of the internet for the past 6 weeks then you know we took on a pantry renovation for this season’s One Room Challenge!
This pantry has been a project I have wanted to tackle ever since we moved in.
It is on the smaller side but still a walk-in pantry, that originally had boribuilder-gradeade wire shelving & lots of wasted space.
Hot mess express y’all!
There was a lot of potential though so I got to work!
The first thing that needed to be tackled was the DIY pantry cabinets & shelves.
I used MDF because this is the most cost affective solution for built-in looking storage. It took me 3 sheets total for the entire build.
Plus 2 gallons of Sherwin Williams Pure White paint, which I used on all the shelving & walls.
After the DIY storage was built I moved onto stenciling a faux backsplash!
This stencil is the French Trellis Bee pattern from Stencil Revolution.
Once the stencil backsplash was dry I added in this gorgeous butcher block countertop from Harwood Lumber company!
It’s their Wormy Maple Edge Grain butcher block countertop that I had completely customized for this pantry space.
For this space I went with:
- 14″ depth
- 2″ thickness
- 1/8 edge radius detail
- Finished with acrylic polyurethane in flat
- Hand planed

One of the last projects I took on in this space was adding a motion detecting light fixture.
This was actually a super simple home improvement project that is also one of my favorite features of the new pantry!
That’s a wrap y’all! The pantry is complete & I am in love with it.
It is so nice to have everything neat & organized.
I may even hide in here sometimes… I mean why not the snacks are already in here 😉
