Pantry shelf Nov. 24, 2010

My laundry room is right off my kitchen and is a good size room so we also made it our pantry. We used to have two seperate plastic shelving units on each wall that were full of food, food storage, paper products and a few kitchen appliances that couldn't fit anywhere else. Needless to say our laundry room was quite packed. Chad decided that he would make me a custom shelving unit taking up one entire wall to maximize our space. He drew up the plans and started to go to work. It was a messy job and I couldn't find my washer for 2 days but it is (mostly) done and I LOVE it!! Chad also made slots for our can goods to slide them in so we can keep track better as to what we have and what we need. Chad has to run to Lowes and pick up more metal for the last few slots but it looks great and my laundry room has so much more room. Chad is so talented and I am grateful for the extra space he has made in our home. Just in time for Thanksgiving:)
