Here at Eddie's house, we call the pantry project "Andi's Panties." I thought better of using that as a title because of all of the Creepy People it would undoubtedly bring this way.
Welcome, Creepy People.
Nonetheless, that's what Phil has dubbed the pantry.
Normally, I like to wait until a project is close to being finished before I start posting about it, because I'm very aware of all the things I may have started and have never finished. But we're tearing through this like a herd of turtles, so I'm feeling confident.
You may recall the glorious state in which the pantry has existed for, oh, two-and-a-half years.
Isn't it amazing??? My training as a professional organizer really paid off.
First of all, this is a 60"x66" room. Therefore, it's difficult to get my butt and a camera in the same space to take decent pictures. Perhaps I'll employ a starving photographer with a wide-angle lens to take pics at the very end.
For now, you must suffer through mine.
Oh! Whomever is the first to guess the pantry theme wins a bag of Cheetos that you must go and purchase yourself.
Ready? Step One: Clean out your pantry and load all your crap on your front porch like a hillbilly and make all your neighbors mad.
Just kidding. It's not hillbilly at all.
Step Two: Do a hideous job painting your ceiling red and take an even worse picture. And actually include it in your blog post.
Step Three: Remove all flooring because your husband was kind enough to offer to put in whatever flooring you want because you're a spoiled rotten brat.
And remove the baseboard. Also paint a seemingly random white stripe around the room.
I don't know about you, but I'm already sick of listing steps.
Here's where it gets interesting. We had to buy a recessed light conversion kit because we had...wait for it...a recessed light. This one from Home Depot is the bomb, and we also used it to mount the chandi in my master closet.
Pick out a kick-ass light fixture and try and get a somewhat decent picture.
Doesn't it rock?
So cool! You can find this fixture HERE.
Grab some wine.
Don't let Eddie have too much or he'll look like this:
All while your husband cuts holes in the wall to add an additional outlet:
And then let him patch the wall back up!
Have another sip of wine and ask, "What the L is that?"
Bad, I know.
Coming up next on Andi's Panties:
Cabinets! Here's a sneak peak!
And flooring we're NOT keeping!
What's the theme? Can you guess? Stay tuned...
