When redesigning the kitchen, the only thing that remained (and I mean the ONLY thing) was the original butler's pantry cabinet that was located in what used to be the butler's pantry or breakfast room. We took down the wall between the kitchen and the original butler's pantry room to make the kitchen larger and more usable. We both agreed that the butler's pantry cabinet was a keeper. It is a huge floor to ceiling cabinet with solid doors on the bottom and what we think were glass doors on the top. However, the glass that was in the middle was gone when we bought the house. In it's place was chicken wire.

P and I have taken on a project that many have labeled as crazy. This c. 1920's Spanish Revival was a foreclosure that had been vacant for about 2 years. This blog is my attempt to document our renovations of what was once a grand old house. Maybe someday it will be again. Someday.
