Pantry in Progress

Since we have no Christmas tree up yet and minimal decorations,
I thought I would show you what progress we have been making on the house...




The week before Thanksgiving we started working on the shelves for the pantry, which was a bit crazy as we were also hosting Thanksgiving dinner.  




We are adding a beadboard backsplash, shaker pegs, and shelves--He is the carpenter and I am the painter.  We are slowly getting there and have yet to add the very upper shelf, and the beadboard to the end walls.


The beadboard was leftover from the porch ceilings, and the Ikea brackets and wood pegs were leftover from previous house projects.



Since we don't have a separate dining room in this house, the extra storage space in this pantry allows the eat-in kitchen to be more open and uncluttered than it would have been otherwise.



I am really appreciating the extra space it gives me for baking.





 And speaking of baking, there is a tray of shortbread cookies ready to go in the oven...

Till next time,

Deb

  1. It looks very clean and pretty. I like that a lot - uncluttered. Our home is so small that all we have in its 1200 square foot space is a small kitchen and attached dining space so I have to get inventive when it comes to storage options since there are few spaces for things, so on the surface it looks sort of neat and tidy but not so much behind the cabinet doors. ;)

    1. Thanks Linda! I know what you mean--the wooden cabinet I have in there was packed to the gills. It was frustrating to get to things; it's all much better now that we have these shelves, thank goodness.

  3. Your home looks clean and fresh. The clutter has not taken over as it seems to have here. I am anxiously awaiting the new year to see if I can find a solution to our mess. LOL!!

  6. This looks so lovely. What a great organized, utilitarian set of rooms that you have created! Would love to "peek" into your beautiful large wood cabinet!! And to be able to close off the door from the created "mess/work", how wonderful. Thank you for sharing.
