This summer has been a blur of activity at our house and (hangs head in shame) I haven't taken a picture of any of it or even thought about making a record of it here until um, today. Now that school is back in session and I have time to think about things other than Sid the Science Kid and the location of the extra snacks and juice boxes (Can I get a Witness?) I will attempt to post about all the things that have Ch-Ch-Changed.
First up- The Pantry

We had an unused closet in our kitchen, I think it was meant to be a coat closet as it had a bar running across the top, and kitchen cupboards stuffed with all manner of food item. Finding uncooked macaroni noodles in the bowl as you were trying to pour in Captain Crunch is a little odd and off putting in the morning, and the need to requisition this space for a pantry was born.

I don't have a before picture because the camera was ALL the way upstairs:) and I assumed we had one from our realtor visit before we bought this house. Just picture everything you see gone and dirty flat white walls and you've pretty much got the before visualized.

A few boards and brackets from Lowe's later and we had this:

Much better use of space, no?
