Ed’s been working on our pantry cabinets, and he spent last weekend working on the doors. We decided to make Shaker-style doors to match our kitchen cabinets, and we’re currently trying to decide what color to paint them. I’m leaning towards a blue-green paint with a black glaze to antique them, similar to our island cabinets. We really love the simplicity and functionality of Shaker furniture, and it fits so well in our home.
Ed glued the doors in the basement so they’ll dry where it’s nice and warm, instead of the chilly garage.
I’m already imagining filling the pantry cabinets with quarts of tomatoes and peaches, pints of strawberry jam, and stocking up on staples so I can cut my grocery trips in half. Hopefully, our pantry will have “a place for everything and everything in it’s place.” Ed’s a wonderful craftsman and I’m so happy I married him.
