Kitchen Pantry Closet – Part 5

It’s done! It’s finally done! With the exception of tracking down a decent wireless LED light of some sort online, the pantry is finally done and stocked. Suddenly I find myself with less stress and more time on my hands. I guess that’s a good thing though. I’ve got to figure out some priorities to catch up on some other things that took a backseat to this project over the course of the last few months. There are also some family things that have been the primary focus as of late and that will take much attention in the coming weeks. Needless to say, I’m glad that I can finally cross this item off of my to-do list.

I am making progress. It’s been slow going, as I’ve only had an hour or two at a time to work on it since my last post, but progress is definitely being made. For a while, I had no real timeframe. I just wanted to do what I could when I had the time to do it. There was no rush basically. Still, being in no hurry, didn’t mean that I wasn’t going to stress out over it. That’s kind of how my mind works. When I’m elbows deep in something I obsess about it. I lose sleep in some cases.

I was correct in assuming when I kicked off this project off nearly a month and a half ago, that it was going to take some time. I knew it was going to take time because I didn’t have a lot of time on any given day to work at it. Plus, it’s probably the biggest home improvement project that I’ve ever attempted to take on without someone else’s valuable expertise guiding the way. I’m just figuring this shit out as I go. Anyway, even spending only a couple hours a day a few times a week, you wouldn’t think a closet remodel would take all that long. It is just a closet after all, right?

Kitchen Pantry Closet – Part 2

Continued from “Kitchen Pantry Closet – Part 1

It’s been almost a month since I first started tearing up the old plaster in in my office closet. As expected, I’m nowhere near done. I knew I would only get the chance to work on this project periodically as I found time. If this project took place in a room that is used daily, I’d be a little more anxious to get it done but it’s a closet in the office that I’m converting to a pantry. My grocery storage has always been chaotic so it can remain that way a little bit longer as I work it all out. I’ll get there eventually.

Kitchen Pantry Closet – Part 1

Someday I hope for the chance to remodel my kitchen. Unfortunately, that’s a big ticket project that will come with a big ticket price tag when that day finally arrives. It’s just not in the cards anytime soon. I’ll be paying off my new rain gutter and bathroom projects for the next couple years, and the next big project after that will probably be a new garage (with a new shop hopefully), so a new kitchen will have to wait.
