BACON AND POTATOES - pantry unit

George and I had a nice long weekend, this Victoria Day holiday.
We were able to get away on a couple day trips that we enjoyed.
I did a little painting, got some deliveries done, finished unpacking from the Mother's day Sale,
re-arranged an entire room that I will share with you soon,
and got these photos taken of a new pantry unit I did.

I always have a ton of ideas running through my head and this unit was
pulled out to try another. However that went south when I realized the measurements
of the unit fit the needs one of my customers has for a kitchen piece.

The graphics used on this pantry unit were made from
a pair of old grocery store produce signs I found on line.

It started as a 70's maple china cabinet.
I altered the upper part quite a bit to provide the open shelving needed for dry goods storage.

This pantry unit was painted in ASCP Old White and waxed with Minwax Natural.
The interior is painted in a grey mixed from ASCP colors.
The graphics were handpainted with jet black acrylic paint.
The drawer handles and door pulls are reproduction glass.

I hope you like the outcome as much as I do!
