Pantry yesterday morning

Pantry yesterday morning

I have not given an update on the pantry makeover in a few days.  There is a good reason for that.  At the same time that we were tackling the pantry/toe kick project, we had asked our contractor to replace the counter tops in our rental house.  I had bought the counter tops at IKEA a little while back, and the contractor was to just take the old ones out and put these new ones in.  Fairly easy and simple, right? Wrong !

We ran into one issue after the other, most of which required Charlie’s knowledge, ingenuity and dogged determination to fix.  In addition, a visit from the plumber was required, so a “simple” three hour, inexpensive project, turned into a 4 day ordeal (during which the tenant did not have a kitchen sink!).

I had resigned myself to the pantry not getting completed before Charlie went on his fishing trip and I was not going to push for that, since this is probably going to be the last fishing trip for the season.  I wanted him to be well rested and be able to enjoy his time on the water.

Imagine my surprise when I got home yesterday evening, and both the pantry was completed and the toe kick was painted!

I loaded the pantry up this morning, and here it is:

Pantry today!

Pantry today!

And the toe kick too:

Toekick = done!

Toekick = done!
