As I was painting in our studio one night, I was staring at our Ikea Billy bookcase hack and it hit me—why not make an Ikea pantry using a Billy bookshelf or two in our pantry? I literally ran to grab the tape measurer and with trembling hands checked the spacing. It would fit! Hooray. A quick google search showed me that the Ikea pantry cabinet idea was not new. Ikea pantry storage using Billy bookshelves has had lots of great success, so I was super excited to get started. So we grabbed a 15” and a 31” Billy at our last Ikea trip.

19. Cart Rescue: Small in stature but bold in color, the IKEA bar cart is the hero of the kitchen. Tuck it in the pantry for extra storage, use it as a mini island or set it up as a coffee bar — this little guy does it all. (via Hampton SC)

This is what I had to work with. Those shelves are only 9.5″ deep and hardly fit anything! Also, a few years after we moved in, the pantry door broke and because it was just easier to grab things without it, we didn’t replace it. It forced me to keep the pantry relatively organized, which was great, but I also had a dirty little secret…

6. Wall of Drawers: If space is limited in your house, you must get creative with storage. These wooden IKEA CD drawers came in sets of two, so the homeowners bought 30, then whitewashed them and created a wall of drawers in their pantry. (via Design*Sponge)

1. Marble Island: No, that isn’t contact paper. But buying a tiny piece of marble sure is cheaper than redoing the whole kitchen. Or, if you want to save a little dough, just paint the IKEA Beckvam kitchen cart a deep gray and add pretty gold hardware for a sophisticated little island you’ll love forever. (via Oliver and Rust)

One of the main issues with our pantry before was having 100% open shelving. It wasn’t working for us. There are some food items that are beautiful and absolutely can earn a place as functional and tasty décor–have you ever noticed how beautiful Basmati rice grains are? Or rows of beans—green lentils, red kidney beans and purpley-blue black beans. What about fluffy flour piled in a jar or shimmering pyramids of sugar? God did good, food is pretty!

…in true IKEA fashion, all of those little pieces you see are sold individually at the store; they’re not boxed together in neat little sets. So you have to go in knowing the measurements of your space and what types of storage needs you have so that you can choose the correct number of wall uprights, shelves, brackets, baskets, etc.

Hi, Alissa! The stool is from Bed, Bath & Beyond years ago, so I’m not sure if they still carry the same one or not. The oil bottles are from IKEA. For the shelving, they show a grouping of the shelves online, but really at the store they are sold in individual pieces, so we just measured the closed and chose the uprights and shelves that would fit the space. Sorry I couldn’t be more exact! Hope you’re having a great day!
