Remember my pantry? Yeah, the new one in the kitchen.
Well…it never got finished because I knew right away that I’d have to change something. I purposefully left a 48″ wide walkway next to the window in the kitchen because I wanted to add a window seat. But I don’t want a window seat just sitting under the window. I want a window seat flanked by cabinets…which would create an issue of having full access to the pantry.
Things are a little fuzzy during the months of December, January and maybe even into February. I can’t blame it on meds as I wasn’t taking anything after my back surgery but some muscle relaxers. They were the size of horse pills though so maybe they effected me more than I knew.
Needless to say, I knew I’d have to do a little demo and reshape my pantry. Something about yesterday felt like the right time to dive in. I had my barn door glue setting and paint drying on my new “Drop Station” bench and I needed something else to do and I always say, “There’s no time like the present”!
Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever said that before…but it works for me in this situation so I’m just rolling with it. I tore out part of the framing yesterday…
What fun! Oh yeah– and I finished trimming out that window! Did you notice?
(Compare the last 2 pictures.)
Time to make it an L shaped pantry – then add my window seat – in between waiting for more glue to set and paint to dry.
My life is all excitement!
