Pantry Complete

 Mat and I have finished the pantry.  We built the shelves for the food.  And we built some decorative shelves to fill the walls on the opposite side.  It came out beautifully.  It was just as I imagined!

The pantry shelves are about 20 inches deep.  We took 6 IKEA bookcases and attached them together.  IT was a lot of work but totally worth it.  Mat did a great job.  I have been scouring antique shops for cool boxes and antique items to use to store out food.  It has been a lot of fun planning out.
Mat built me 4 shelves made out of reclaimed barn wood.  They are gorgous.
A few years ago I found this hymnal holder from an old church at an antique store.  It makes a perfect holder for my favorite cookbooks

I also took two of the old cold mining lanterns we inherited from Mat's grandpa - derusted them and added them to the pantry.  It was a fun project to bring them back to life

The before
The after!
