One day, I opened up my messy foyer closet and realized we never use it for guests coats. It was just a junk closet...old coats and such. I started entertaining the idea of repurposing it. I then started stressing about how far it was from the kitchen (about 21 feet), would people think it was weird, etc.
I went for it anyway and this is how it turned out...
Foyer closet turned into a pantry
I love how it turned out and I don't mind the extra distance from the kitchen. I wallpapered the walls with a fancy black and white wall paper. I'm glad I took the extra time to do this...it's a great finishing touch. We used shelving and drawer systems from The Container Store, Cherry Hill NJ (Elfa). They are the perfect depth! I won't lie, they are a little on the pricey side. Here's the link: http://www.containerstore.com/ Wait for them to go on sale!
We measured the cans and allowed only enough room to comfortably be able to stock the shelves, this maximized the space, although elpha shelving is fully adjustable
