Other People's Pantries #86
From Tania, in South Texas:
Hello, this is my first blog post!
I am 26 years old and bought my first house last year because I got tired of paying rent. My house was built in the early 30's and I love it. I am (and will always be) slowly working on my house, and the first thing I did was the kitchen.
I have these GIANT cabinets and, since my house is not level, they sat crooked, so I just took them off and framed the openings. The right side is all of my dishes and the left side is where I keep my cast iron collection. I am trying canning for the first time this year and have just finished up the first tomatoes of the year (next is peaches). I hope to fill the left side with all of my homemade canned goodies.
Then there is my so-called pantry. All it is is an old wooden cracker and cookie display case from the 20's. I think it is an old Nabisco or whatever was before Nabisco. Someone was throwing it out because it was wobbly. I screwed the feet on better, and now I have a great pantry. I know I don't have much, but it is just me and my dog so what I have is plenty.
Just above the stove I have old wooden Dr. Pepper and Seven-UP bottle holders that I added a shelf to and now call them my spice rack. I will add more wooden crates when my spices expand. The pot holder above the stove and the stove are both Craigslist finds (I love recycling).
P.S. you can see my baby girl Cheyenne next to the stove. She matches the floors that I have yet to finish.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
