I noticed that a few people have commented on maybe adding a piece of Plexi Glass to the top of this....... Sorry I forgot to say in the post that I went and purchased some Plexi glass and have it sitting on top of the Door.... It's not shown in the picture cause I purchased it after I had taken all the pics... Sorry for the confusion... But thank you all for your input :)..... It definitely is a must for sure..... a lot easier to clean and no food getting into all the Crevices ......
Trimming out a room can really give it that high-end, crisp and clean look.
It's really inexpensive too. Would you believe that I spent only $60 on moulding and
trimmed out the bottom of 2 rooms, plus an entire attic space? Oh, and add about 12 windows and doors too. I'm not kidding. We have a lot of entry ways in our NY house.But.....it's a lot of work. And has me hesitant toward whether or not we would do it again. Let me explain the whole process to you in steps. Because there's a lot of them. And when you think you're done, there's a few more.
I really like the industrial look, so I came up with a vanity plan that's different from your typical vanity. I raided my dad's barn for some 2x6 tongue-and-groove boards and bought a
stash of galvanized pipe for the legs and supports. It was pretty quick and easy to build, though it did take some time to figure out. I need to find some good baskets to fit on the shelves, and stock up on nicer towels! But we really like the vanity and so far its worked out great. Step by step tutorial on my blog.

The standard pantries in the house we bought last year were almost unusable. Long deep shelves and only 3-4 of them in a large closet sized area. Thank heavens they had doors. I designed
the shelves, my husband cut them out of MDF boards, I painted them with several coats of paint, and he installed them with aluminum channel. The channel allowed use of the shelf all the way to the back of the space. I counted and measured all the things in my food pantry to make the plan for how many shelves, how wide, tall and deep they needed to be. See the beginning and end result. It's so nice to be able to find things now. It turned out so nice, we did the 2nd pantry where I keep dishes, plastics, and mixed items for the kitchen!
