My Brand Spanking New Pantry!
Wow... here it is Metamorphosis Monday! Time sure is getting away from me. Guess it must be just be that time of year.
Thank you Susan for hosting this meme. I will have her link at the bottom of this post.
This was the way my pantry looked. Don't laugh because I bet a few of you have let it get this way too.
The ceiling is WAY high and just look at what those pesky builders left me with.
Hey... this is my pantry guys... not the garage!
The paint was white... but look how dull it was compared to this new white. Also I used a semi gloss instead of FLAT!
We used Dutch Boy paint that has Baking Soda added to eliminate and prevent odors. We = I bought, he painted.
So I got busy. Went to WalMart and got this "happy" shelf liner and some double stick tape.
Hubby had already done the painting... I don't like to paint, and I am sure he does...
I must have spent 8 hours in this little room, measuring, cutting and piecing. Did I mention that it took 9+ rolls?!
Since I have OCD I needed to make sure that all the checks lined up. So 8 hours with my reading glasses on...
Buy the time I was done I was starting to hallucinate!
But just look how nice it is now!
Not laughing now, are you.
We even replaced the light. Couldn't turn it on 'cause it would be just too bright for the picture!
See any difference???
