All of the closets and shelving in our house is the standard
builders grade wire stuff.
A few years ago we removed the wire shelf in our laundry room
and installed a nice 3 door cabinet.
Other than that, all shelving has remained the same.
And if you have wire shelving you know how much fun it can be.
Especially in a pantry.
All the little boxes or envelopes that tip over or
settle into the gaps between the wires.
I felt like my pantry was always in disarray.
I will hang my head in shame and embarrassment and show you my pantry.
Told you it was a big old mess.
I considered updating to deeper wooden shelves,
but I'm still working up the nerve to mess with the power tools and math
of creating shelves.
I was flipping through the decor board and saw THIS pin as a quick solution
for those pesky wire shelves.
During my vacation, I headed over to Lowes to pick up some stick tiles.
I didn't like any of the patterns, and the cheapest box was about $18.
So, then I headed over to Home Depot.
I was frustrated, and decided to wander around a bit.
I found the contact paper section, that had more styles I liked, but was flimsy.
The cork contact paper was much more sturdy,
But I wasn't sure if it would be easy to clean.
Plus, it was brown.
Then I saw this product in the wire shelving aisle.
I had no idea it existed.
And at $7.98 a roll, it was a pretty good deal.
They had 2 different size depths so I grabbed one of each.
Turns out the one above was the exact dimension of my shelves.
So I took the smaller roll back and got another one of the larger roll.
Installation was a breeze.
All you need is are scissors and measuring tape.
Honestly, the hardest part was having to remove all the junk from the shelves.
So here's the how to:
Clean out your shelf.
Measure the length.
You don't have to worry about the depth if you pick the right sized roll.
See how I have that wonky angle.
I was going to worry about that in the next step.
Cut out the length.
I laid the liner on the shelf and bent the angle forward.
I then took my scissors and cut along the bend.
Those little cut outs you see is how the liner connects to the shelf.
You push them through between two wires.
They are pre-cut and spaced about every 6 inches on the liner.
I used that first liner as a template for my five shelves.
I used one entire roll and about 1/2 of the other.
I have enough left over for one more liner and extra.
So here is the finished product!
With all the food back in place and organized.
Which took FOREVER.
I can actually see what I have in there.
I feel like I have tons more room.
And I'm significantly less embarrassed.
I'd recommend this product for anyone with wire shelves.
I wish I had found out about it sooner.
