We didn't work on our pantry this week.We were just too busy.Although, so far the electrical wiring is in and the subfloor is almost finished.We decided to tear off the ceiling and will have a vaulted ceiling like in the kitchen.Hopefully this weekend we can start drywalling the ceiling and install a light fixture. While browsing Lowell's this weekend I stumbled upon a very large chandelier that was totally awesome for the price of $35.It was on mega sale.I convinced hubby that we could use the light fixture from the dining room which if really small (for the pantry)and buy the huge chandelier for the dining room.He agreed and I can't wait to install and show you guys.I was so happy I found it!!!!! My other special bargain find was a vintage sofa from a thrift store for $40.It reminded me of the blue sofa I had before that ended up breaking but this one isn't as ornate.It was in mint condition but just yesterday Yoshi chewed a hole in it!!!! I was so upset but I was planning on reupholstering it eventually.I covered up the spot he chewed up so it is still functional.My plan is to reupholster it in raspberry pink velvet.I will probably wait two years until he is totally trained.Here are a few photos!!!!!
