Stairwell Pantry If the stairs leading to your cellar are wide enough, the wall beside (above left) them can be transformed into a pantry for items you use regularly, such as canned goods and other kitchen supplies. Have your local home store or lumberyard cut one-by-fours in decreasing lengths (use the longest shelves at the top of the stairs, the shorter ones near the bottom). Give them a coat of semigloss paint to make them easy to wipe clean. Then hang them (these are spaced about a foot apart) with metal L brackets.

We had an under-stairs closet in the house I grew up in. It was my play room for a while, and then held us safe during a terrible tornado. I've always loved under stairs "closets" and I can't think of a better use, well, except maybe to house Bourbon!
