Gulp…A much needed kitchen pantry makeover plan is in the works for the New Year New Room Challenge. Check out my embarrassing “Before” pics and the wallpapers that I’m eying.
Today kicks off Week 1 of the New Year New Room Challenge Refresh hosted by the ever so talented Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living. In the past I have gone BIG for this refresh…like my whole basement, or my daughter’s bedroom. This year, however, I’m tackling a smaller space that is in serious need of love… Check out the kitchen pantry refresh plan and help me pick a wallpaper. If I’m able, I’ll update a few other parts of the kitchen as well. Also, don’t forget to check out the links to the other fun participants at the end.
The winning wallpaper will be sponsored by Hygge and West, but the opinions are 100% my own.

Current Kitchen Pantry Situation
It’s not that we NEVER clean our pantry…It’s just that it’s been a while…and maybe it’s only been twice since COVID started😬. But here’s the real problem. See these doors? They look just fine when closed, don’t they? In fact, I really like them with their fancy casing, thick architrave and pretty handles….
It’s the pretty facade that has enabled the reign of chaos that lurks behind these doors…Please tell me I’m not the only one whose pantry looks like this?
Or worse yet…This…
The Kitchen Pantry Makeover Plan
Here’s my plan: Don’t buy any more food between now and the reveal. I’M KIDDING!…mostly :).
But seriously, I’ve heard that if areas of your home don’t stay clean long it is because you need a better organizational system. I might be guilty as charged, so developing a way to store and sort food should be high on the list. I’ve never claimed to be a master organizer, so this will require a little research on my end. Should I invest in pretty cereal organizers, baskets, etc? Perhaps.
I also think I need to move the big appliances to the bottom shelf or to another area of my kitchen. They look too heavy on the top shelf and they would destroy my marble tile if they ever dropped.
Pretend to act surprised, but I definitely know I want to paint the inside of the doors and install wallpaper. Here are a couple of wallpaper kitchen pantry makeover plan options:
This fun paper is Hygge and West’s Bruno in Navy. Pretty, eh? Do the blue undertones match? I’m not sure that they do, but it might be worth sampling. While my kitchen is less green IRL than in those pics above, I think the Bruno is still more of a true-navy with less green undertones than my kitchen.
Option 2 is this stunning Hygge and West Deep green Palma wallpaper. I think it does a great job of playing off the other rooms in view:
and the Bathroom
Knowing all of this info, which wallpaper would you pick? Any tips for food storage?
I’m excited to get going on this project that will be a beautiful and functional addition to the kitchen. Don’t forget to check back in each Tuesday as we work towards this goal. If I have time, I might manage a few other surprises in addition to the kitchen pantry makeover plan while I’m at it.
