When I bought my fixer upper house, I had grand ideas and I'm slowly marking them off one by one to make my house a comfy place to live. My latest project was to build a corner pantry. My kitchen did not have any extra storage so I installed a shelving unit (left picture) and have been using that for 10+ years. I finally jumped with all the time I've had stuck at home during COVID and built a corner pantry for around $350.
I wish I could give you a blue print of this project but we (my brother and I) had to tweak it as we went. The basic idea was 16 inches for the out side walls and the door is 23ish inches. For the shelves, I used a 12 inch wide board. The shelves ended up being four feet for the long section and three feet for the shorter wall.
Items Purchased (the items with (?) is the items I already had on hand:
9 2-4-8 Studs ($34)
2 Drywall ($?)
1 Drywall Screws ($?)
6 1-12-6 Whitewood Board ($89) Shelves
6 1-3-8 Whitewood Board ($28) Shelf brackets
1 Screws ($?)
1 Door Jamb ($20)
2 Wood Shims ($3)
1 Door ($20) - found at a resale store! It is very heavy.
1 Hinges ($9)
1 Door Knob ($10)
1 Trim ($6)
1 Trim Nails ($?)
1 Caulk ($4)
1 Gallon Paint ($27)
I hope this gives you an idea of how to build your own corner pantry! I don't know how I ever lived without one. It holds so much food, cleaning supplies and the dog food container.
