- A mum has revealed how she created a tiny cardboard model of her new pantry
- The woman said she sat at the door dreaming of a better design for years
- Her new design limits the need to bend for items on the bottom shelf
- There is also a secret compartment where she can hide treats from her family
A busy mum has revealed how she planned out her dream pantry by making a tiny cardboard model to scale.
The mum said she had an infestation of pantry moths at one point – which inspired her to design her new food storage space.
She said the moths, which came from a box of muesli, ended up getting in behind the fixtures and proved very difficult to get rid of.

And it looks exactly like the one she ended up with
When she designed her new pantry she wanted a space that was easy to access and clean.
‘I would stand in the doorway and dream of how to improve the space,’ she revealed in her post.
‘Reduce the amount of crawling under the lower shelves to get what I needed.’
She said she can now stand in the doorway and appreciate her pantry – which even has drawers for staples like flour.
But the hidden chocolate safe in the corner of the pantry appeared to be the number one crowd pleaser.
‘I liked your post and then saw the little box and had to love it,’ one woman said.
The pantry even has a secret compartment for the woman’s chocolate stash
She said she now stands in the doorway and feels happiness over the space she created
While others came straight out with their ‘love’ for the chocolate safe.
‘The chocolate stash is brilliant. I would copy that idea but my husband is both my builder and chief chocolate stealer,’ one woman wrote.
The woman said she can finally fit everything on display in her pantry – and still has room for her microwave and mixer.
