Work on the pantry started this week. Dan made the upper shelves from leftover beech flooring. I wanted shelves eight inches wide to have things stored on them mostly visible so Dan pieced together the flooring to make the elegant shelving and made the curved brackets to hold them up. The workmanship and detail is completely charming. Next comes a wooden countertop and then more wide shelving under that. One wall next to the door has no shelf space, instead there will be two wooden rods to hold ironed tablecloths.
