A Reinvented Pantry

Alright, alright,no more taste tests...shes done! and shes awesome!
Cute right?!
So I had a sale Memorial weekend right....and I met a gal named April...cute little thing :) Her daughter fell in love with the jewelry box I revamped here So she got to take it home :)
While talking to her she told me she needed something for storage in her kitchen, like a pantry, but the catch was it couldn't be too big...I told her I would see what I could do, and get back to her.
I found this gun cabinet at a yard sale a week later and snatched it up...hense the hint here
I took it home and started taking it apart. and got rid of that horrible glass...(poor little deer)and replaced it with some backer board and chalkboard paint!
Added a bit of beadboard to the sides, and a sheet of plywood to the back to sturdy it up a bit(worked like a charm)
Then gave her a fresh coat of Martha Stewarts' "Bay Leaf" My idea of Green Apple! (Aprils Request)
On the inside I decide to add some adjustable shelves. We found a super cool tool at Home Depot that made this part super easy.
(see the little stopper on the bit...Aaaaawwwsome! it allowed us to drill only as deep as we needed.
Then I got some of those little tabs to go into the holes, to hold up the shelves. and cut the shelves from bullnosed mdf. and painted them white.
All together, and semi stocked...this little gal is going to be able to hold quite a bit of food!
Took a little road trip and delivered this beauty to April this morning, and needless to say I think she loved it! And it looks great with all of her decor!
I'm going to be doing some partying over here!

A little Update!

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days...I can't wait to catch up on things everyone has been up to.
This past weekend I had a little sale. I took about 25 ish pieces with me, and came back with 2...I know right?!
The best part was all the postive feedback I recieved :) I gained a few friends, leads and best of all confidence.
So I don't have any new projects going on at the moment, but I just got the go ahead to start on a custom piece...i don't want to spoil the end result, so I'll give you a teaser :)
I can not wait to get it done. And my client can't either. In the meantime, I'll be back later to post some pics of a desk repurposing I just finished! Hope you all are still hanging in there, and checking out what I've got going on...I love you all so freakin much!
