No Pantry! Watch me!

Anyone have a similar experience?   You tour a house to buy...fall in love with stand out features like...Cream coloured upgraded cabinets in the kitchen...granite everywhere... gorgeous hardwood throughout...vaulted ceilings...backyard deck the full length of the house overlooking forest behind...Awww...Love at first site...

...Wait!...No Pantry? What is a girl to do...

No Pantry! Just watch me!

Our laundry room off our kitchen has a closet. Hmmm?....  Do we really need another closet? 

 Heck no!

Thanks to my talented hubby, we now have a pantry just off the kitchen in our laundry room.
I forget to take a picture of it as a closet...darn, but you get the idea...picture it empty with one closet rod and shelf.

I re-purposed this kitchen cabinet for our pantry...
it is a perfect fit.
My hubby built shelves to partner with the cabinet

I love it! We took the closet door off, to make it easy to enter.
There is a door on the laundry.  Having two made it crowded.
Doesn't take much to make me happy lol! 
All is right with the world again Haha! 


  1. I love it! You certainly turned your closet, not only into a pantry, but into one that is so pretty that it is a pleasure to put things away in there. Great job! I am your newest follower and I would love to invite you over to visit and I hope that you will decide to follow me back.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Hi Helena,

    You sure didn't let a pantry stop you! What a beautiful transformation from closet to pantry. Your glass jars display everything so nicely! Hubby did a wonderful job with the shelving. I'm your newest follower. Have a great weekend.
