Wowsers! That looks like it has always been there. Great job making it look "right"! :D

Thanks for your compliments. It turned out just as I had hoped. The fabric doors actually happened because I don't have a router so I couldn't insert a panel into them. The fabric is from the Aunt Grace collection. http://www.mamasloghousequiltshop.com/s ... eRothermel
I sewed a pocket on either end of the fabric, slipped it over a 1/4 inch thick wood slat, and screwed the slat on the back of the door. There is probably a better way to do it, but I'm always out for the thriftiest method.

In all of my excitement over your fabric (thanks for the site, by the way!), I failed to mention how jealous I am of the pantry as a whole--especially since I'm about to embark on a pantry project of my own. It looks fabulous and so "right" in that space!

Now when are you going to put that baking center to use and make us some cookies? :D

Haha. For the most part, I cook, and DH bakes. He's already made about a dozen batches of muffins and pancakes in there! Have fun with your pantry!

You did a really good job on that. Reminds me of the bulter pantries in old houses. It is such a good use of the space.

It makes me think of Laura Ingalls Wilders pantry in the first four years... she mentioned being able to bake a cake in there. Very nice work!!! :D
