Weekend Project: Pantry Update

This weekend I was unmotivated to do anything constructive around the house.  But Bradley decided to speak my love language and complete a project for me.  We love our butterfly stainless steel trashcan we got as a wedding gift, but it had to go sideways in our pantry and would move around when we step on the pedal to open it.  We decided to cut out a section from the middle of the bottom shelf and slide the trash can in for easier access.  And since we added another whole shelf to the top of the pantry, we weren’t worried about losing this minimal amount of shelf space in the process.  I had bought a small pair of bolt cutters and an extra bracket so it was as easy as measuring, cutting and leveling the shelf on the new bracket on one side.  I also had some rubber tips leftover from our closet reorganization, so we don’t have to worry about the sharp metal tips on either side of the trash can.  It has been really great not having a roaming can in the pantry.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
