2×4 Pantry Shelving

Are you looking for inexpensive, no frills shelving, that does the job, without a ton of work?

In our pantry, I wanted a shelving solution that worked – NOT a second kitchen to have to keep clean and tidy.  

Our pantry isn’t huge, so I also wanted custom shelving that went wall to wall – no awkward gaps or not the right depth shelves to deal with.  I only have one pantry, I want the shelving to be just right for it.

So I came up with this – a 2×4 framed pantry (for strength) topped with inexpensive 1×6 boards.

It’s not the most beautiful thing I’ve ever made or seen.  

But after almost FIVE years of using it, it’s still going strong, still doing it’s job, and still keeping my kitchen super clean and beautiful. This is the no frills storage solution we needed.
