Last week I posted about our latest project on Stone House Lane, a pantry-posted: HERE
The new (old) house didn’t have a pantry so, The Husband and I decided cut into the wall in the laundry room and go out a foot into the garage to add one. (this photo is from the construction day…there’s sheet rock covering the hole now!)
I finished painting the door and the pantry and put in my food, which had been living in the garage for the past month. Food in the garage floor is kinda chaotic, in case you were wondering.
Also, I’ve never been so short on food, turns out I wasn’t buying pantry items when I didn’t have a pantry! But the good news is that I’m kinda starting fresh, nothing out of date, nothing I don’t use…it was therapeutic to systematically put everything in it’s place. It felt…
…like I was simplifying my life.
After all the chaos of these past months, everything we do these days feels like another step towards simplicity.
Beautiful, serene …
I don’t want to speak too soon, but I might just be feeling more simplicity than chaos these days.
I’ve done a little update to the pantry HERE
Did you chose one-word for the year? If so …how’s it going?
***Paint colors: As always, I used Behr Ultra Paint with Primer- The door is a Behr Paint color Irish Mist (like my kitchen cabinets) and inside the pantry walls are painted the gorgeous Behr Paint color: Pensive Sky. and the laundry room walls are Behr Paint color: Rhino!
