Are any of you watching Dancing With the Stars with Lindsay Arnold right now? I grew up dancing and love to watch any type of dancing show. I've been watching So You Think You Can Dance since its first season and have been mildly obsessed with it. I'll never forget watching season 9 and fan-girling big time over Lindsay Arnold. She is such an incredible talent! And when it was announced that she would be one of the professional dancers on Dancing With the Stars, I was so happy. So you can imagine my complete and utter total excitement when she reached out to me to organize her pantry!
This is one of my favorite pantry makeovers to date! It was so fun to take Lindsay's pantry to this:
Pantry Organization - Zones
Lindsay had done a great job at trying to create zones, but those zones needed some containment. As we were pulling everything out, we noticed that like things were often found grouped together in her pantry. However, without containment and systems, things were often misplaced and lost.
So we did what we do best! We brought in products that would work perfectly in her space. After asking Lindsay Arnold questions and finding out what her own personal design aesthetic and vision was for her space, we found products that would customize the space just for her.
Yes, we bring a lot of product. When we come to reset a space, we usually bring more than 50% of what we end up using to ensure that we have everything we need to create a custom fit. And we love how it turned out! These products gave the whole pantry a light, bright, and airy feeling, which is exactly what we were going for!
We created clear zones that will be functional and easy for Lindsay to maintain. Labels were added on these cute birch bin clips so it will be clear where everything goes. Here we have snacks, treats, and dinner items contained in these beautiful white-washed rattan baskets. Snacks fit perfectly in these darling tosca baskets with these smaller sticky back white label clips. Cereals are to the right in my favorite cereal containers, and pastas to the left in these tall oxos. Snacks continue below in the smaller size of the white-washed rattan baskets.
Pantry corners are the perfect place for large lazy susan trays. These housed Lindsay's oils, spreads, and drink syrups. Just give the tray a spin and find exactly what you need.
I love these stackable white nordic bins with the bamboo lids to store things that you're not needing access to everyday. They were perfect for Lindsay Arnold's paper goods, plastic cups, and plastic cutlery.
We grounded the whole space with these large wooden bins from Target. These are great for holding larger items like chips, or for stacking multiple cans of soda. And do you see Lindsay's small appliance tucked away underneath? We used my favorite velcro straps on all of her small appliance cords so they would stay neatly tucked away and will never be sprawled across the floor.
How cute this is tiered, wooden lazy Susan? It fit perfectly in this cupboard, which is right above Lindsay's bread box and toaster on her counter.
Working with Lindsay Arnold
Lindsay was a complete JOY to work with and I was so happy with how her pantry turned out! I love to see her dancing on screen knowing that she has this organized, beautiful, functional space to go home to after a season of incredible dancing and hard work!
