Vintage Farmhouse Style Pantry

2 Materials
10 Days
There was an under utilized closet at our Mountain Cottage that we thought would be perfect for a kitchen pantry. Our kitchen is really small at our mountain cottage and we needed a little extra space to store things. We also wanted to make a removeable kitchen island that we could use in the kitchen when we needed it and store it in the pantry when not needed.
Because I love Farmhouse and Cottage style, designed it with a beadboard back on the left side and included a reclaimed wood apron rack.
This is what the space looked like when we bought the house. It was a poorly designed coat closet that held very little because of the design.
My husband built a custom wood kitchen cart to snuggly fit into the left side of the pantry. We will be reno-ing the kitchen at the mountain cottage soon and even after it's finished, will be small and will lacks counter space and the kitchen cart will help with that when more space is needed.
The pantry is backed with beadboard, has space for kitchen linens, dishes, a rack for aprons, a beverage station and of course, canned goods.
Here's the after of the finished Vintage Pantry. You can see more photos here:
