Ready to see more!?
It worked, but it wasn't ideal.
And then I browsed on Pinterest… eep!
I dreamed of an open pantry filled with jars, but I had always wanted a hoosier… and loved the
look of the old mail sorting shelves, but I wanted stained glass and cubbies too! Can't a girl have it all? Darn right she can, especially since she's the one building it!! :) I hope you can see my inspiration points in the final product. I sure can!
Here's how it turned out!
I'm so beyond pleased with it. We've been using the lower half for ages, but I powered ahead and got the upper part and with my Mum's expertise, got the stained glass door done this past month.
I feel like there should be a lot more to say about all of this, but I guess I'm just content that it's done. Each section took a lot of planning, and a lot of thinking, and then re-planning, and then fixing when I realized the errors I didn't forsee. In the end, hopefully they're only little inconsistencies I notice...
Here's the big "Before & After". It's made such a huge change in our kitchen, and I can't wait to enjoy it for many years to come!
