The good news was there was empty wall space that was perfect for adding additional cabinets. Hubby found a cabinet maker that could get us matching cabinets to what we already had and it was all installed in one afternoon. Here are the before and after pictures:
|Before: the desk area and pantry|
|Before: the pantry. |
Lots of extra wall space that wasn't good for much of anything
|Installation!! One new pantry added.|
|After: New open shelves|
(The little space on the right side was filled in the next week.
Nothing is ever completely straight)
|After: Finished pantry and new shelves|
|After from a different angle.|
The doors aren't closed because of the addition of new spice racks
and we hadn't yet moved the inside shelves when I took the picture.
