If you’re still relying on flimsy wire racks in your pantry, take a cue from The Handmade Home and make the switch to a sturdier solution. First, get rid of the unsatisfactory storage system in a old, do-nothing closet, then patch and paint the walls, and put up braces and shelves using a combination of pine and melamine boards. The result of these efforts? A well-organized pantry that can stand up to bulky dry goods, heavy canisters, and more. Estimated cost: $375.
