Pantry Organizing Ideas Including Free Printable Tags/ Snippets of Design

One of my own personal New Years Resolutions is to organize & re-decorate my home.

I LOVE my home & it’s character but we have been here for 9 years

& although I redecorated when we moved in {& many times since},

I will be honest…I have gotten kind of lax.



I have already bought most of the fabrics & many of the supplies to redo the majority of my home , I just need to put it into action…

so I decided to start with my pantry.

Pantry Re-do Before & After/ Snippets of Design

As you can see, I organized it {sort of} before…with tags & what-knots

but that was BEFORE I started Snippets & it was time for a MUCH NEEDED re-do.

Plus, the poor thing needed paint…

 Pantry Before/ Snippets of Design

My pantry had obviously been through a lot and needed a good face lift.

I painted the the shelves & side walls with Glidden® High Endurance Plus Paint+Primer in eggshell/satin Antique White

and the back wall in Spring Green to match my upcoming kitchen re-do {here}.

For Straight Paint Edges, Use a Razor Blade to Remove the Tape/ Snippets of Design

Painting Hint: How to Obtain Straight Paint Edges

  • Make sure that the seal between the wall and the tape is COMPLETELY sealed on the painting side.
  • Always use less paint, more layers.
  • Never paint “into” the tape.  Paint “away from”.
  • Use a razor blade to remove the painter’s tape.

After I painted, I assessed what I had, what I wanted to re-use, & what I wanted to change…

I decided that I wanted new labels.

Some that weren’t as “floofy” & some that I could offer to everyone for free on Snippets which meant,

I needed to design them from scratch. ;)

This is what I came up with…

Pantry Organizing & Free Printables/ Snippets of Design

I believed that they created a modern, “cottagy”, country store feel.

Which is EXACTLY what I am going for in my new kitchen.



I used some baskets that I bought from Walmart® & some organizing tools that I already had.

I even had the matching  jars from IKEA already…yeah!

I had saved  jars and decanters for a wedding so I was kind of excited

when I realized I now had some fun vessels for oils, vinegar, & vanilla.

I was also very excited when I realized I already had the perfect spice cabinet for the job

if I just tweaked it a tad…

You can find the tutorial, free printable labels, & story behind my spice cabinet here. ;)

I also wanted to keep my favorite stool.

I have had it for probably close to 18 years & it has been repainted a few times already

but I love it & the truth is, I need it…

I am only 5′ 2″.

So I repainted it once again…here is the tutorial for the stool. ;)

  6. Jars & BasketsIKEA®
  7. DecantersEbay®
  8. Spice Rack & JarsTarget® & Amazon®
  9. Organizing SuppliesIKEA®


I printed the tags & labels on inexpensive, white cardstock from Walmart.  It costs around $5 for a large package.

I used a black thread from the yarn department at Walmart & my Create-a-Sticker to attach the tags.

I also used gunmetal i-lets from the scrapbook section on my hanging tags.

    Amber your pantry is absolutely gorgeous!! Thank you so much for labels, I just sent your post to a few friends. That is my dream pantry, but like you, I have to do a kitchen remodel first *sigh*

    Thank you so much Didi! I can’t wait to see your remodel if and when you take it on.
    I hope you’re having a wonderful day!

    I wasn’t able to print any of the labels. My computer said that a “drawing error” ocurred.

    Hi Becky! :)
    Thank you so much for your comment. I always like to help if there is a problem. I tested everything on three different computers. I also tested everything on Google, Firefox, & {although I wouldn’t personally recommend it} Internet Explorer. Everything worked. Some were a little slow because the file size was large {I like to give you the best print quality possible} but everything worked.
    I have to be honest, I am completely stumped. I have added a couple of options to the post however.
    I added a link to the newest Adobe Reader download. That might help.
    I also added a compressed zip folder of the .jpg versions of the printables. It might be easier for your personal computer to download the zip folder to save & print the labels. It is not as high of a quality but it is still very good quality.
    My last suggestion is to download the pdf before printing it out if neither of the other options work.
    If it still doesn’t work, please let me know and maybe I can email you a version that will work.
    Thank you Becky!
    Good Luck!

    Hey Becky!
    I had an idea for helping the labels to print easier so I switched it and the quality was too high so I lowered it. Hopefully it helps.
    If it doesn’t, please let me know…
    Thank you!

    Wow just gorgeous! I was wondering if you happen to know the brand or manufacturer of your vetable oil decanter?

    Hi Ciarra!
    Thank you for your interest. I’m so glad that you liked it…
    I have to be honest, that is my favorite decather as well. I bought it from Ebay but the company that created it is Krosno out of Poland.
    The website is
    Hopefully you can find one you like…

    Hi Amber,

    it looks really nice your kitchen. But a small question. Do you also have a (word)file so i can add my own names of herbs that are missing here?
    Tnx a lot! Leyla

    I love these vintage labels. Thank you for sharing them. We are currently remodeling our kitchen which will now have a dedicated pantry. Your labels are perfect and what a great idea to use bar decanters for olive oil and vegetable oil.

    Just wanted to compliment you on your gorgeous pantry collection and to thank you soooooooooo much for the jpegs and pdfs! I printed them out using those sticky clear book-covers you find in most dollar stores, trimmed them and then stuck the now sticker-like labels on my jars. They look absolutely fantastic! Just what I’ve been looking for – thanks a million!

  18. amber

    February 2, 2015

    You are so sweet, thank you! That is great! Such a smart idea… I actually started printing them out on full sheet sticker paper myself & I love it.
    I am so glad you like them.
    Have a lovely day!
