My New/Old Pantry Makeover
My Pantry Transformation
We The Mr.even replaced the light.
I hate to say it, but this closet is also from my Texas home.
The one here in my new Desert Home is tiny...
12 inches deep and has five shelves.
Yesterday I shared my master closet makeover from the Texas home.
Did I mention I miss all the space we had in our old home?
Downsizing means just that... smaller!
So here is the "old" closet makeover...
This was the way my pantry used to look.
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.
What an ugly light fixture!
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. I went to WalMart and got this
"happy" shelf liner and some double stick tape.
I must have spent 8 hours in this little room,
measuring, cutting, measuring again and piecing.
Did I mention that it took 9+ rolls?!
Buy the time I was done
I was starting to hallucinate!
I needed to make sure that all the checks lined up.
... 8 long hours with my reading glasses on ...
But just look how nice it is now!
Not laughing now,
I got this at The Home Depot.
Not only cute, but I can see!
In fact I couldn't turn the light on for the
picture because it is so bright!
See any difference???
I sure did...
It even smelled new!
I am sharing this post at Sarah's party.
This the theme is Show Us Your Closets.
Thanks for the fun party!
