Plastic Grocery Bag Holder

I'll be posting my big pantry reveal tomorrow. Yay! Ok, I am going to get this part out of the way right now: My doors are not finished. I really wanted to have those accordian doors replaced with regular hinged doors, but it didn't happen. But lots of really cool things did happen, so I will be sharing all of that very soon. And hopefully, very soon after that, I can show you my new doors too :-)

But for now, I am sharing a little pantry project I did. I have had this plastic bag holder since we moved into this house. The previous owners left it in the pantry. It was never hung up because, you know, that would require like 2 nails being hammered into the wall or something really strenuous like that. So, it sat on the floor for the last 7 years. Yes, I said 7 years! And as you can imagine, it's pretty useless on the floor. I actually thought I had gotten rid of it a long time ago. Then I found it when I was cleaning out the pantry for this "impossibilities" project. Um, yeah, that's how messy the floor was. I didn't even know it was down there.

So, here it is before:

I spray painted it with the chalkboard paint I used on my pantry shelves, then covered it with a piece of scrapbook paper, then put one of my chalkboard labels on it. Then I actually hung it up. It's so much more functional that way. Ta Da!
