TikTok’s Pantry Shelving DIY Will Give Your Pantry A Luxurious Upgrade

0 13

To get cracking on this DIY pantry upgrade project, the first task is removing the existing shelves. Once you’ve waved goodbye to the wire shelves and removed their supports, you’ll probably be left with some drywall damage. While you can rectify this with multiple rounds of spackle and sanding, you can also follow this TikTok creator’s lead and conceal it with wall covering. @emilymadehome opted for beadboard backer, but you could up the ante with some peel-and-stick subway tiles (these Stickgoo ones on Amazon have glowing reviews and cost $4.31 per square foot), plain wood paneling, or even a bold wallpaper. Small areas like pantries and powder baths are ideal places to play with color and pattern — but if you want to go the wallpaper route, you will need to repair and smooth the surface.

When your walls are good to go, it’s time to install new shelves, and maybe even a countertop. @emilymadehome’s design uses a piece of solid butcher block, but you can also DIY a budget-friendly faux butcherblock countertop using plywood. Determine the ideal height, secure 1-by-2-inch supports to your drywall studs, and drop the counter in. You can use the same method for mounting the shelves, or brad nail squares of painted plywood to the studs on the side, so each piece supports the shelf above and looks seamless. For additional shelf supports in the middle, @emilymadehome used corbels, which is a super cute option.
