How’s this for transformation?: the pantry

30 Dec

Pantry, before and after

It’s been 8 years and more we’ve lived here and only just now have we banished the last of the evil woodchip wallpaper, may the inventors of this ill suffer many pains and sorrows. It took some scraping, wearing masks because we weren’t sure the paint wasn’t full of lead, but we have finished the pantry. It’s painted in the same two-tone spats / chocolate gateau colours – depending on your cultural references – of 70% cocoa brown and unwaxed lemon cream. It’s filled to the brim with the accumulated paraphernalia of 15 years scouring antiques markets, eBay and charity shops, as well as all our store cupboard goodies. Sometimes I just sit here and it makes me feel better.

    LOVE your pantry. Mine is very sad and dark, and doesn’t really match my cheerful disposition. We’ve been in our house for going on 8 years and STILL haven’t redone the kitchen. But thanks for giving me hope. 🙂
