Today’s blog is all about rethinking spaces. Do you have a space that is being used for one thing, but might be better suited as something else? That is what happened to us. We had an office that was off of our kitchen. It was 5 feet by 10 feet in size. It was too small to be used as a home office, and our kitchen was lacking storage space (especially with my obsession for dishes). Therefore, I came up with the idea to change it into a French Country Butler’s Pantry, and my dear sweet husband helped me turn this idea into a reality.
First, we had to cut the center cabinet out and raise it to kitchen counter height and place a piece of granite on it. This created a coffee bar and place for a beverage refrigerator. Placing the coffee bar in the Butler’s Pantry helps to free up much needed counter space in the kitchen. Also, having an extra refrigerator for beverages is great.
Second, we painted the cabinets black. My husband has a commercial spray painting machine which really made the job easier. After the cabinets were fully dried, we sanded areas to give them an aged look.
I tried to do my best, but it is hard to capture the full pantry because the room is narrow and long.
Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow, I will share the brunch/breakfast recipes that I promised last week. I hope that you have a great Monday!!!
