Kitchen Stuff

Pantry Idea

Great idea for a pantry using an old armoire. 
These are all over Craigslist since everyone is switching to flat screen tv's. 
I missed that craze. 
I don't have my tv in my living room in this house...but even when I did,
 I was all about letting a tv be a tv and not hiding it.

That and I couldn't afford a tv armoire. 
But now that everyone has flat screens and are exposing their tvs...
they have the problem of having this extra piece of furniture they don't need.

Now I kind of wish I had one to turn into a pantry.
Except, if I had tv would still be in it because I still don't have a flat screen.

I have chandeliers and weenie dogs though...remember? 
I'm rich in those!

Indeed you are rich!

We have no flatscreen either. Our TV was ten dollars at a yard sale...hehe.

Ha! I can beat that..mine was free! I did have a little bigger tv but it quit on me suddenly last month. It was about 15 years old. This one a friend gave to me for me to use in my bedroom but then my big one conked so now I'm using this one. I so appreciate that this one was given to me or I would have had to do without for awhile. But I do have to say...when I go to all my friends houses and they have those huge HD flat screens, I am jealous. Some day I'll have one, probably when everyone else has Hologram TV where the action takes place in your living room in actual real 3D.

First, I'm going to strangle you!!!
As soon as I get off your blog, I'm going to cruise over to Craigslist and find a TV armoire!
D*#@! You!
I have a huge old TV in my art/bedroom that is just hooked up to a DVD player.
In my living room I have a little flatscreen HDTV that my sister gave me for Christmas 2 years ago. She gave it to me because I don't have cable and the broadcast stations were all going to digital...very sweet of her. :)

Oh to be so organized as that pantry armoire. Love it. And to think I sold my tv armoire. I still have an antique one but the door is too pretty to remove. I've never thought about using it in the kitchen though. hmmm...

It better be a free armoire because you're going to need a good budget to buy all those matching storage bottles. But it sure looks great. Maybe you can find a vintage stove and an armoire that the same house....that delivers!

I hadn't noticed all the little white mice till I looked a second time....I guess that explains the cat. That person is rich in little white mice! You have wonderful chandeliers.

I have an armoire... but no place to fit it in my kitchen to use as a pantry! Like you though I'm rich in chandeliers and... Yorkies :o)

Jennifer said...

Rich in chandeliers and weenie dogs... hehe you made me giggle. I LOVE that pantry idea. I have three cupboards and two drawers in my kitchen... but one empty wall. Maybe this is my new storage idea! :)

Kifus said...

I love those containers and I have quite a number of them. The only drawback is that I have to empty them out and wash them quite often for them to look their best. I still love them of course! And those mice all over the cupboard are delightful!

sissie said...

I would take chandeliers and weenie dogs over everything else for sure!!!

Can you imagaine ever having such organization???? LOL. All those perfect food jars....probably would never happen in my house.

Love it though. Great use for an armoire.

Sissis said...
