From Ho-Hum to Gorgeous! Pantry Project Update

My Newly Painted Pantry :)

Last fall I bought a Leksvik child's wardrobe from Ikea to use as my pantry:

It was exactly the right size & fit for the space I had but I didn't really like the finish so I painted it and changed the knobs.

This looked a little too pristine to me so my next phase of the project was to add chalkboard paint...

Oh yeah, I like this much better.  Gotta add colour to my life!  Next step is to paint the inside of the cupboard and add more shelves to max out the usefulness of this already useful pantry.

  2. Mmmm, LOVE it with the chalkboard paint!!
