Sharing how we created our DIY walk-in pantry for our fixer-upper house.
When we purchased our home, it had plenty of cabinets albeit random cabinets.

Some were shallow, and some deep, but mostly in weird spots.

The yellow area is the area we wanted to change as the wall seemed kind of random.
And here is the image of the day we bought the house to give you a visual.
The outlet in the middle of the wall is where the refrigerator is now.

We taped off the area to plan it out:
I know…you love that carpet. Sorry to disappoint you but it got axed!
Here was the overall plan:
Here’s what we did:
- Cut out pantry door from one wall.
- Added the wall (in red) to enclose the laundry area and make a walk-in pantry.
Since the refrigerator is built into the pantry, there is now a shelf for cookbooks in the pantry.
- Continued the same flooring we used in the rest of the home.
- Added molding and trim.
- Painted using leftover paint from another project.
The door needs to be painted but here is the pantry entrance:
And the after with the new wall…
WALK-IN PANTRY SHELVING
Our shelving came from an unusual place and situation:
When life hands you a wind storm, you make pantry shelves. #salvagestyle

And the inside:
Oh, and baskets make everything better. We love everyone having their own snack baskets!
The laundry room is now inside the pantry and we are starting to work on that. You can see some of that progress here.

DIY WALK-IN PANTRY TIPS:
This isn’t our first rodeo with building a pantry although the first one was just a little slide-out shelving closet. We did learn one big thing that helped us so much on this project.
Measure the height of your typical food pantry items to determine shelf placements.
