Pantry Fridge

Our kitchen is a huge work in progress.  When we bought the house, the kitchen had the worst possible layout ever.  We played around with some ideas of how we could arrange things and I promise, some day, a post will be written detailing what we've decided to do.  We never figured we would have to gut the entire kitchen, but that's exactly what ended up happening in order to rip out the old floors and  install our new floors.  In fact, this is what the kitchen looked like the day Jack was born; obviously not move in ready.

A lot has been done to the kitchen in a short amount of time and I'll soon do a photo timeline to show all the progress that has been made. Although it's not "done,"  it's very livable and functional.  We still have a lot of stuff in boxes because we haven't installed all the cabinets or the pantry yet.  In fact, all our unrefrigerated food is in random boxes in the kitchen and butler's pantry.  Let's just say this makes cooking a little challenging.

I was feeling frustrated the other day while digging through boxes looking for pasta when it dawned on me that we have an extra fridge just sitting in our dining room, completely unused.  The extra fridge is the one that was originally in the kitchen when we bought the place, but we decided to move our fridge from the old house into kitchen because we like it better.  The extra fridge is camping out in the dining room until we get around to selling it, and it's a good thing we still have it because I decided to temporarily turn it into our pantry!  Stroke of genius!  And I got rid of 4 more boxes.  The unpacking continues...
