Last summer we decided to make some changes in the way we eat. We wanted to eat a lot more fresh fruits and veggies; make more food from scratch so we were weren't eating as much processed foods; add more variety to our grains; and we wanted to limit the refined sugar that we were taking in. There are many reasons we decided to do this, but overall, we just wanted to be healthier.
I started spending more time in the kitchen and I wanted our healthy changes to be successful, so I decided to help myself by making my kitchen a place I wanted to be. What better place to start with change then the pantry? Sorry, but I don't have a before picture
This is the door I built before stain and molding.
After staining the door, I added door trim.
This is the finished product with white painted trim. I wanted the contrast between light and dark, so I decided on white trim.
I decided on dark hinges & hardware for the door. Again, I like the contrast with the wood. It also brings out the dark color in the stain.
This is the inside of the pantry before it got a lovely makeover.
And this is the finished product with blue paint, white shelves & a white painted stencil.
These are our chore charts on the inside of the pantry door.
And a fun close up.
