I know it's been a while since I've posted. I'd love to say I've been making huge strides with my house, but that would be a fib. Life has happened though and I've been trying to take it all in stride. I did finish my pantry though. If you don't recall, my pantry originally looked like this.
Fabulous huh?? Yup, the cinder blocks really added a little somethin-somethin to my food storage. Jealous, aren't you?? I know, it's okay.
In all seriousness though, the shelves were cut-down from my old closet and repurposed into "pantry" shelves. The cinder blocks had been hauled out of my parents' yard and leftover from a brother's wedding. While I appreciated the storage they offered, I wasn't happy with their mismatched look. Ugh. So, out came even more white paint, excuse me, "Heavy Cream."
And, as is typical for me, I got paint EVERYWHERE!! I do not understand how people manage to paint neatly and keep everything contained and clean. I can show you every single color I've ever used based on my painting clothes. Ridiculous I know, but I get the job done, eventually.
After the boards and blocks dried, mostly, I neatly stacked them in the new cute pantry. NEVER EVER doubt the power of paint, people!
Instead of mismatched boards and dirty cinder blocks, I had sculpture pieces that made a custom pantry with twice the space. (Sculptural? Are you kidding? (Hey, let me have my delusions, here. It keeps me happy!!))
When all was said and done, I had an awesome pantry! It's not the one of my dreams, yet, but it is so much better than before.
