Here's the old ones. Ewwww.
And....the NEW ones!! Gorgeous!! The same man that built our banister and our built-in bookcases made the cabinets. Great work!! And...he was awesome to our kids! Thanks Clary! He is a Saint! Would you want 5 kids playing peek-a-boo with you while you use power tools? How about 5 kids running through the kitchen, asking 1 million questions and trying out your tools? Me? Not so much! Clary? Just fine and dandy with him! Like I said, a Saint!
And the BEST part of all!! A new pantry. I had not realized how much I hated our pantry. It was too deep, too dark and hard to access. It was designed horribly. You needed a head lamp and a prayer to find anything. The old pantry had accordion doors. Dumb. You couldn't see about 6 inches of the side. Here's photos of the old pantry. Side Note: Since I knew I was getting a new pantry I quit cleaning or organizing it before Christmas. What a pit!
Once it's empty you can see how terrible it is! Bad design!
And...the NEW one!!! Gorgeous! I'm in love with my new pantry...and yes, I want to marry it!! It now has double doors that open out...giving me so much more space that I can see. The shelves are also not as deep and they are bright white and there are more of them too. Ohhh....can you feel the love?
I had a shelf put way up at the top for all of my cookie cutters/sprinkles/cake making stuff. Love it.
