Moving our wooden pantry out of the way was the first step in the project. It served us well, but doesn't really fit the space. It will do well to serve as storage in the basement for all our bulk purchases we make with our new BJ's membership.
When we first moved in the nook was a hodgepodge of wooden shelves and a homemade cabinet. Since we used the wood pantry, there was no need to take out the shelf supports. Now they need to go to make room for out new cabinet. Of course, they didn't go without a fight.
So there's a lot of patch work and plastering ahead.
