It’s time to make a mess and start a new project. Next up was the pantry. I’m not sure who invented wire shelving, and I’m sure it serves a great purpose for some people, but I don’t like it. Replacing it will be worth the piles on the kitchen counters for a while!
|First step: set up the spare table and empty the shelves.|
|Second step: remove the old shelves. Demolishing is always a fun part of the job!|
|Third step: repair the holes and prep for painting.|
|Fourth step: prime then paint. No more ugly green, just the soft, matching gray.|
|Fifth step: buy some supplies. We’re trying poplar instead of pine (used in Michelle’s closet) this time.|
|Last step (for now): cut out the pieces for the bottom shelf and try out your new “toy” – a router. He did pretty well for a novice, although we did learn very quickly why the more expensive versions come with a mounting table!|
