Butler's Pantry: Start to Finish

 My hubby and I have been working on installing our Butler's Pantry for a while now and its finally finished!! I documented the process in photos, so here it is!!

This is the finished product! 

This is the kitchen before. There was a wall with a very tiny pantry inside. 

Before and After

During: Studs going up! 

During: Sheet rock!

Before and After: Hutch

This is the hutch I bought at Habitat for Humanity for $100! I painted it white and added new hardware. My hubby then installed it on the wall and trimmed it out to make it look built in!

We cut new shelves from 2" thick wood and stained it with Early American Stain. 

The wine glass rack is from The Container Store and it was attached to the bottom of the shelf! The plates are from Target, the white container is vintage, and the cork ball was an afternoon craft project!

The lower cabinet is also from Habitat for Humanity, as well as the table legs that were used to frame in the cabinet and beverage fridge. You will also notice the pink tile floors in the kitchen have been replaced with wood floors that tie into the rest of the house and there are new folding doors on the laundry closet. 

Love this pewter hardware from

The backsplash is the same tumbled stone that was already in the main part of the kitchen. On Amazon for $9/sheet. 

Family scrabble art was made by yours truly, but my sister custom makes them in her Etsy shop so go check her out!! The clock is from Hobby Lobby and I added some blue paint to it for some more color. 

I hope this project inspires you to do a little remodeling in your home! It takes work, but it is so rewarding in the end to say that you did it your self!

Fun, Feminine Office + One Incredible Wallpaper

Check out this fun, vintage eclectic office! It was so much fun designing this room around so many amazing patterns, bright colors, and vintage finds!

Wallpaper is Daydream by Hygge and West and I trimmed it out with small simple moldings!

How fab are these pink velour drapes!?

All of these vintage prints were part of my client's family history! How cool is that? And I used this glass top console table to display everything!

The desk was re-painted grey and I added these gorgeous leopard knobs!

This pillow was custom made from a cloth napkin!

I love using plates as art and this set of 4 by Kate Spade is no exception!!
