16 Sep A facelift for the pantry
This is just a quickie naptime project I completed this week. Our kitchen has sort of a French country theme. It’s lovely and really functional, but some of the details clash with our taste (which is a bit more modern.) The thing that bothered me the most is the pantry door. It has frosted glass and this scroll type pattern that says “Pantry”
Here’s a before pic:
I just didn’t think we needed to announce to everyone that this is our pantry. And I didn’t like that you could see through to our clutter inside. So, I grabbed some chalkboard paint and painted over the center panel. Here’s the result:
I like this much better. It matches our black appliances, and it’s functional. What do you think??
Total time: 60 minutes Total cost: $10
I’d eventually like to trade out the doorknob for something less….gold. Kris wants me to create some sort of chalk mural like you’d find at a coffee shop, but I don’t think I’m that talented.
