Pantry before and after

Post by Mury »

Hi all. I haven't been around OHW in quite a while but thought I'd pop back in to share some pictures. This is the 6x6 pantry in my 1920's kitchen. The kitchen itself has very little counter space so I put a baking center in the pantry. The main kitchen still needs work, but this has helped incredibly with the function of our kitchen. (We cook and bake a lot!)

Fantastic!!

What a wonderful job and a great use of the space to fit your needs.

I love the idea of a pantry, but if you arean't going to use it as such, why not make it what you need?

That looks incredible! I am envious!!! I love the fabric in the cabinet doors too- how did you attach the fabric? I wanted to do something similar in my kitchen....

I LOVE that pantry!!! Sure beats the stainless steel shelving we have in the laundry room. The gathered fabric panels on the lower doors are a very nice touch. Nicely done!

what a wonderful space with such a nice period feel. It still has loads of shelves to function as a pantry AND a baking center. It looks like it could have always been there.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your fabric? I never seem to be able to find the vintage-looking stuff I'm looking for, so I must be looking in the wrong places.
