The Grand Finale

I know I have shown you pictures of my butler's pantry, but it is my very favorite thing in the whole kitchen, so I am going to show it again....


Bright, happy..clean. All the things that bring me joy.



The pantry is where the refrigerator used to be, leading into the dining room.



It contains all my favorite things...



Vallerysthal goblets, Python Tray, Frog Pitcher, blue cake stand and some Skinny Girl Margarita mix. 



This is were I hide all my food. 




My pantry before was the two cabinets to the right of the frig...that was it!!
Now my food feels like it is living in the Taj Mahal. 




Before the only way to get to the kitchen or den was through this one door...



Now the kitchen is open to the dining room...



And the living room....


AND this wall in the dining room is gone!!!



Is it all just so open and bright and the flow is 1000% times better and really it would just be easier to show you in person, so stop by sometime. Just give me 10 mins warning so I can stuff my mess in the laundry room!!!

Several people asked about my floors. We put down new hardwoods and had them painted black, NOT stained. The paint was watered down and it is perfect!! If you live in Wilmington I have a great floor guy, e-mail me for the info (siskotte@ec.rr.com). I LOVE my black floors but they are not for the faint of heart or those afraid of some dirt. They show everything, but I love them so much I don't care. I don't think a little sweeping ever killed anybody, but I'll let you know 

I think that is all for now, but I may repost my pantry again just for the fun of it!!!
