Our kitchen does not have a lot of pantry space, so we decided to add another pantry at the end of the kitchen (where it meets the dining room). Not just any pantry though.... I really wanted to do a pantry that was magnetic and a chalkboard (somewhere to hang some pictures and write out different lists or messages to the family). We were able to find a pantry that would fit our space at Home Depot so we got that and the magnetic primer and chalkboard paint and got to work. Painting the pantry was very time consuming because you have to wait for the paint to dry in between each coat ( 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of chalkboard paint). Thankfully my husband took on the daunting task of painting the pantry (nothing is more attractive than a man who will do something he hates just to make you happy lol)!
