Wowza. We have really hit a block. Not much is happening on the fixer upper lately. I only have a few cool things to show you. First, remember that coat closet that was at the top of the landing? Well, I had an idea on how to make better use of that space.
Door on the Left
Don’t get me wrong, every place deserves to have a coat closet. But it doesn’t need to be quite so deep!
Closet Without Door

Wall Going Up In-between
A small kitchen desperately needs a pantry. And I’m envisioning a nice little nook where each shelf pulls out. And we will also build the shelves to roll out should you ever need attic access. I’ll save a little surprise with this spot for a later date.
Mudding and Taping
And here is the small space for the pantry-
While this space is only about eighteen inches wide, I have to say, it’ll be bigger than one side of my pantry space in my own kitchen and a shelf taller. It’ll be a great spot for all those groceries. And a better usage of space than simply hanging coats.
