You HAVE to see the before! Can you guess what happened to the hot water heater?

by Thistlewood
When I posted this project I went back to find a before picture. I couldn't even believe it. I had forgotten what it looked like. When we bought the farmhouse in 2009, I fell in love with the kitchen and the attached butler's pantry. It was dark and dreary and wallpapered from celing to floor, but I knew. I knew that it could be so much more than a dark dreary space.

Open shelving with white dishes and platters. Ready for company.
Before picture. Yikes!

    I thought about dust also, dishes need to be rinsed before use. Seems cup hooks would do nicely there.

      Not if you use them every day..some people do. I never had a problem.
