My sweet friend and right hand helper, Kate, just moved into a new house with her husband. They've been tackling some really cool DIY projects the past couple weeks. Look how cute their house is now after a coat of paint and some grass seed!
One of our sponsors, Boxed, reached out about trying their service as a housewarming gift for Kate!
Boxed is like an easy-to-shop online wholesale club store, without any membership fees, and most importantly, none of the headache. (Going to Costco is truly like torture for me!) Boxed has a great website, but their phone app is a breeze to use, too.
They sell non-perishables in bulk sizes for really great prices, and they ship right to your door in two days or less. I especially love popping over to the sale page every few days to see what specials they are running on my favorite cleaning products, like Mrs Meyers. Boxed also has great prices on baby items, like diapers and wipes, baby food and shampoo from companies I trust like Annie's and Honest Co.
Kate has this great little pantry space off of her new kitchen that we decided to give a little makeover before stocking it with items from Boxed. Here's the space before:
We took out the old thin shelves and painted the inside of the pantry a really pretty color called Templeton Gray from Benjamin Moore.
Using the same technique I talked about yesterday, we added wooden shelves to dress things up a bit. I think the wood looks so pretty against the gray/blue/green wall color!
We also painted her pantry door with chalkboard paint so Kate could make a note of supplies she's getting low on. Remember that it's important to "prime" a freshly painted chalkboard surface with a good layer of chalk before writing.
The black of the door looks so pretty with the art we hung in the kitchen. It's a print of a photo taken by our friend Angela Hardison we printed out ourselves and framed in an IKEA Ribba. I LOVE it.
We're both so happy with how Kate's pantry turned out! I'm a big fan of putting extra effort into cleaning and storage closets. It helps me feel more organized and inspired to keep my house cleaned.
