…and it’s finally finished!
We received the smaller shelving unit (on the left) today and Andrew wasted no time in assembling them. I just placed the last item and hung the hooks for my aprons.
The paint color is darker than we both anticipated, but now that everything is inside, I think it works. Andrew said he’s pleased with how it turned out and that it is ‘exactly how he imagined it.’
Despite only gaining a few inches on either side, it’s definitely bigger than before. Here’s what it looked like when we moved in:
WAY more room, WAY better lighting and overall just better use of space. The best part? I can walk in and grab something without hitting my right shoulder on a shelf. And the floor matches the kitchen. And way more space. I can’t believe how much space these new (well, one is new, the other is old) shelving units brought to the pantry.
You know how whenever you spruce up/improve/clean a room in your house it makes you want to just spend lots of time in the new space? That’s how I feel with the pantry. If I could put a chair in there and just sit, admiring Andrew’s handiwork and my organizational skills (and the beautiful teal walls), I would.
But that would be weird.
