A Beautiful Pantry--Finale!

These BEFORE pictures are from last January when I cleaned and organized the pantry...

Last week the daughter and I covered the shelves in "sticky paper"...

The daughter loved it and said,
"Wow Mom it looks so vintage, wait, what exactly does vintage mean?"

We almost finished it but ran out with only a couple feet of shelf left to cover...

Today I painted the last of the door trim one will ever see it but it's high gloss white, just like I like it!


D believes that children from age 6 to 11 usually give the best help around the house. So this is the age to train them to be really effective in their responsibilities and to make certain that proper work habits and traits are being formed.
The daughter that helped me is actually 14...she was a good helper on this project but on other projects she's easily distracted.
My 6 and 11 year old are by far my best workers.
Too bad the 11 year old turns 12 next month.


  1. Outstanding! Now, could you come an' work on mine? Bring all the kids. We'll make virtual cookies an' drink virtual hot cocoa. *grin* hehe; I don't do much in the kitchen, these days.
