Kitchen Tour 2016

Kitchen Design Ideas

Home Tour of an updated kitchen with ebony stained cabinetry, an eat-in kitchen table and functional butlers pantry.

Kitchen Pantry is Done - Part 6

Styling a coffee bar and a custom kitchen pantry.

I added summer touches to the butlers pantry, finally! Styling these shelves was such a fun project for me. I had the music cranked and just let my mind wander and just played.

DIY Project - Taking out a non-functional closet pantry and replacing it with a more functional one.
