paint: ANOTHER "POOF" PROJECT - 06/20/10 10:39 AM
HOME STYLE AND STAGING recently re-designed a dining room closet into a bar area http://activerain.com/blogsview/1685275/poof-a-closet-becomes-a-bar-area- and they have enjoyed the built-in so much they asked me to re-vamp the pantry so that they could display some of their cookware.
We took the door off, painted the inside with the same paint as the bar area, as they are in the same open area.
     
So hopefully I can move on to another project in the house, this is fun...using color, organizing and de-cluttering love doing all three !!!

I did some of the work, instead of buying new hinges, I sprayed them black. Actually I had forgotten about them and since this location was far from  the local Lowe's … (19 comments)
