Step 1: Clear everything out.

Step 2: I added a 1″x 2″ board to the front of the cabinet shelves to make them feel more substantial, than the thin 1″ original shelf boards.

I added wood glue and then nailed the 1″x 2″ to the edge of the shelf.

How Do I Give My Pantry a French Country Pantry Makeover?

Step 4: Now, it’s time for the fun part, adding the wallpaper.

This wallpaper is peel and stick, so it’s easy to hang.

I measured From top to bottom to see how much wallpaper I needed. Then I added an extra inch, just to make sure that I had a big enough piece.

Next I peeled off the backing and applied the wallpaper to the wall, making sure that there were no air bubbles or creases in the wallpaper.

Doesn’t it look great?

I love it.

Step 5: I made the gingham check curtains, but you can buy some if you don’t sew.

I attached the curtain rod brackets to the bottom of the shelving, then I slid the curtains onto the rod and hung it on the brackets.

I absolutely love the wallpaper and the curtains.

They add so much character to the pantry.

Step 6: Next I added woven hyacynth baskets on the shelves and added a cute label to each basket.

Step 7: I bought some wood crates and added casters to the bottoms of them with a cordless drill.

Now they easily roll out from underneath the curtains and roll back in.

Creating a French Country-inspired pantry makeover is certainly achievable.

It doesn’t have to break the bank or take an extensive amount of time to accomplish it.

With our easy steps, you can easily incorporate classic elements like gingham accents, open shelving and decorative baskets by purchasing or repurposing items for your space.

What a pretty pantry/butler’s pantry. The wallpaper and curtain are darling. What is the suspended planter behind you in the photo wearing a black dress? It looks like aged copper or terra cotta with pretty shrubbery growing in it .
