Creative Bits | 13: Upcycled Pantry Canisters

If you've been following for awhile, you heard me say before that I'm all about using what I've got on hand, re-purposing things, and generally spending as little as possible on projects around our house. Yay for tight budgets! Since this is kitchen organization month over here, and I've been dreaming about possibilities for our pantry as well as beginning to organize it, I've been on the lookout for inexpensive ways to update its storage.

Though I would love to go on a shopping spree at the Container Store to make this happen, I'm pretty sure my credit card would give me a dirty look and refuse to be swiped. Plus, when I see beautiful pantry makeovers filled with dollar store items, I have a hard time justifying spending a lot on pretty containers. And you know what's even better than buying dollar store containers? Using free containers! Yes, it's true! (she says, spoken with an enthusiastic infomercial voice.) How? Read on, friends, read on.

Lisa, from Lewisville Love made over her pantry using - wait for it - empty almond containers.

Would you have guessed that all those gorgeous, clear, silver-topped containers housed almonds in their previous lives? Neither would I!

Head on over to her blog to see how she did this, and how beautifully her entire pantry turned out.

I'm just so darn impressed with all the creativity and resourcefulness that's out there these days. It's so fun for me to feature some of these ideas on my little blog.

I'm off to be creative and resourceful myself in the pantry department this weekend. Fingers crossed I can get it finished and ready for a close up!


Creative Bits is a semi-regular series here on May Richer Fuller Be where I share little tips, tricks and simple do-it-yourself projects from other creative bloggers' minds. I figure if it makes me say, "wow," it's worth passing along to you! And remember, if you want to pin any images that don't belong to me, please click through and pin from the original source!
