Over the last few weeks Reece and I have been on a few adventures, and Justin has stayed home to get some work done and tend to our little homestead. When we went away the first time I came home to this lovely pantry unit. Space is always a problem in our home, it is after all a one room schoolhouse. We are always working to make the best use of the space we have and decided a pantry wall would be a really great idea. I left knowing Justin was planning to build the shelving while I was gone, but had no idea what his plans were. I was not only happy when I got home, but instantly got to work filling up those shelves. So far there are more empty jars than full ones, but with the canning season upon us you can bet they will fill up fast.
When we headed to a friends cottage last week he set out to build the island. Again I left with no idea what he planned to do and well, you can imagine how happy I was when I got home. I am in love with the island and have put it to good use many times in the last week, including serving up our buffet style dinner on Saturday night for friends.
My kitchen feels like a brand new space. Since getting home from the cottage the whole kitchen has been reorganized, there have been boxes of extras sent off to donation centers and it is now feeling light, airy and just perfect for our little home.
