Butlers pantry

Yesterday I was surfing the net looking for houses with butler pantries.Oh if only I had a "real" Victorian.Don't get me wrong I love our house but there are those days when you wish you could have more!!!!! I found a few photos to post.Yesterday my hubby put on another coat of waterproofing cement in a basement corner.I hope this does it.When it rained really hard we got water in this particular corner of the basement. As soon as it completely dries I will prime and paint.Not much else going on here,I have a really bad cold and feel tired and mopey!!!!

My grandmother's old, old home in Chicago had a great butler's pantry. How fun! We loved just checking out what kind of pies and goodies were awaiting.

My family moved so often when I was growing up. One home we were very blessed to occupy for a season came complete with its own butler's pantry. I believe that was one of my mom's favorite features of any place we ever called home.

I love your redo pictures. Old homes are just so fascinating and delightful to me. My husband has no patience for "that much work." You are so brave and adventurous to tackle it while homeschooling your children, too.

Blessings to you.

Thanks,I hope our next house has more nooks and crannies!!! I have a list of all the details we are looking for(more me than the hubby) He would just like his own meditation room to get some peace and quiet!!!!! We have moved a lot too,this has been the longest we have lived anywhere. Actually this house is similar to Trent's grandma's house that was on the south side of Chicago.Her house had a butlers pantry too!!!!
