This is our kitchen pantry.
And this is the photo that inspired the
use of a screen door pantry!
(Taken from a House Beautiful book.)
I saved this photo in my files forever with
hopes that one day I could make this work
when we redid the old kitchen.
So when it came time for the actual
renovation, I went shopping for an
interesting old screen door with some
charm and character.
(I am so sorry now
that I did not take a photo of the door
when I found it. It had no bottom
panel and was in pritt-eee bad shape. I did not
know then I would be a blogger!)
What a great pic that would have been.
I bought it from one of my favorite
antique dealers, Joan, and would love to have
photographed her with the door in her booth
that fateful day at the flea market.
(BTW, Joan also has a fantastic blog and a great Etsy shop....

Here are some additional photos of pantry screen doors.

Someone recently emailed me and asked
what the inside of the pantry looks like!
It is not very exciting, trust me.
More functional than pretty.
Come on inside....
|A cute door handle from Hobby Lobby. Super chippy paint now black.|
|Don, my angelic contractor added a new beadboard panel where there was none!|
|Great big ol' new clock from Target ---- until I can find an affordable old one!|
|Deep shelves to the left hold all my appliances. New schoolhouse lights above.|
|Vintage flip top bin for hiding 20 lb. dog food bags!|
|More pull out storage on right with a wine cooler below... it came with the house.|
|Heavy duty steel roll out shelving from Lowe's was a perfect solution.|
|Painted wood brackets from Restorer's Catalog for holding tarnished silver! Oops.|
|I'm only sorry we haven't added a spring to close it. I would like it to BANG shut!|
