Beautiful Work!!

Finished project/Beautiful!!
   My husband, Russ, has just finished our pantry area in our kitchen. There was a desk area there originally, but we never used it. We were in desperate need of more pantry space that was really organized. We went to Lowe's and bought a pantry and cabinet. We had them paint it in a mushroom color. Well, here are some pics to show you the progress:


Russ has worked hard to really make the pantry look built-in to the kitchen. I love how I can showcase my Mom's teapots.
Beginning the process....
   The pantry is a wonderful addition because of the shelving system. You can't see it well, but in behind the shelves you can see are more shelves running across the back.
   I just love this pantry area. I designed the look with help from Russ on the finer points of construction. We make a great pair, don't you think?
Another angle...
