It all started when I saw two coordinating hutches listed on Facebook Marketplace. See， our new kitchen is teeny-tiny， and will never have enough cabinet space. I knew I needed to get creative with extra dining room storage.pillow cases vintage
I rented a Menards pickup truck， but when I got therepersonalized pillow cases， one of the hutches was already sold (an honest mix-up， since he had like 9 Ethan Allen hutches to sell). Then I spotted an antique wardrobe in the back corner. I tried to act super disappointed， while my dad acted like we shouldn’；t buy anything at all. All-in-all， I walked away with two Ethan Allen hutches and this antique wardrobe for $170. What a deal!
I decided to use the hutches elsewhere， and use my new antique wardrobe for added pantry space in the dining room.
I needed to add shelves， but I definitely do NOT possess expert carpentry skills. I knew that a track shelving system of some sort would be my best bet.
I knew one thing for certain： I did NOT want white track shelving and laminate shelves. No. No. No!
So， I was able to find tan-colored track shelving that I thought would blend better with the wood stain and cut custom shelving at The Home Depot.
Here’；s exactly what I used：
Once I had my shelves in place， I quickly filled up my new pantry cabinet with all of my baking supplies. I love having all of my baking essentials in one spot! And p.s. –； how gorgeous are my new pantry jar labels？ They’；re a quick and easy DIY.

I'm a kind of traditional person who firmly believes in tying your bow ties. I tried making my first bow tie ever, and I'm proud to say that it turned out all right :)Bow ties aren't hard to make at all, although sewing them by hand can take a while o.O But imagine the awe of your peers when they realise that your slightly-dodgy-bow is not only self-tied, but hand made!
