Butler's pantry's are one of those spaces in a home that I would consider
a luxury. I was lucky to have had one in a former home but
unfortunately, not in our current home.
I love to entertain and I might have a bit of an obsession
with ironstone platters, silver napkin rings,
aprons and cloth napkins. My kitchen
cupboards - while plentiful, were not really
built for storing the above mentioned
I purchased this white cupboard at a favorite Portland
antiques spot from a favorite dealer. It came with a single
shelf. I had my handy dad cut three shelves for me and
my husband installed them in the cabinet
over the weekend.
I painted the interior Farrow & Ball's Down Pipe
with a leftover quart I had mixed at Home Depot.
The paint had hardly dried when I began filling
it with all my platters, linens, cups, flatware,
serving baskets, water pitchers and misc......
As you can see, it's not quite perfect - but it certainly provides
perfect storage for all my entertaining essentials!
