DIY Before & Afters Pantry Room Makeovers

My Finished Butler’s Pantry Remodel – Before & After

I finally have before and after pictures of my finished butler’s pantry remodel to show you! The actual pantry took me ten-and-a-half weeks to build and finish, which was much more than I had bargained for when I decided to be a guest participant in the Fall 2018 One Room Challenge. I must have been delusional to think I could get this room done in five weeks, including building the cabinets from scratch, building a wood countertop, building floating shelves, painting the freezer, building pull-out shelves, and hand-tinting over 200 resin/alcohol ink tiles.

But that challenge was just what I needed to give me the motivation to get started on the pantry. And while I didn’t finish it during the challenge, I did meet my main goal of finishing it by the end of 2018.

I’ll give you the whole tour, and show you lots of before (waaaaay before, as well as before the One Room Challenge) pictures. But first, did you notice that I’m calling it a butler’s pantry now? I was reluctant to use that term because it seems so fancy and highfalutin for my house. But just calling it a pantry seems misleading since the only food you’ll find in here are Cooper’s bones and treats in the three canisters that sit on the countertop right below the window, and then the food inside the freezer.

Sooo, I guess I’m one of those fancy people with a fancy house that has a butler’s pantry! 😀

As soon as I finish up my kitchen organization projects, I’ll do a whole kitchen/pantry organization post and video to show you how and where I’ve stored everything, but for now, I just want to focus on the actual pantry building project.

pantry remodel - after 16 - view of pantry from breakfast room

The whole remodel, from the very beginning to the end, was actually a work in progress for over two years. When we bought the house in 2013, there was no pantry. There was just one big room that measured 12 feet by 24 feet next to the kitchen (and separated from the kitchen by a wall) that the previous owners referred to as a den. So the area that is now the pantry originally looked like this…

pantry remodel - original before 1 - back area of den before breakfast room remodel

The area had two large windows with broken panes, a door that led to the sunroom, a dark plywood ceiling that awkwardly curved down around some interesting ceiling framing, and green carpet.

I took out all of the carpet shortly after we bought the house, and that revealed the asbestos tile floor.

During the breakfast room remodel, everything was torn down, torn out, reframed, drywalled, etc. It was a big elaborate process which included my brother and I completely tearing out the back wall and rebuilding it with one small window in the center.

And then I framed out a wall seven feet from that back wall and put a 48-inch doorway in the middle to create a pantry at the back of the breakfast room.

So by the end of the breakfast room remodel, the pantry was its own separate room sitting behind cute French doors…

And it sat like that — empty for a while, and then filling up with random piles of stuff — for a year-and-a-half until I decided to do the Fall 2018 One Room Challenge. That’s when I cleared out the room, devised a plan, and got to work. So after all was said and done, this area went from this…

…to this…

Now that I’ve reminded you of how this room looked before any remodeling took place, I’ll just focus on the “before the One Room Challenge” pictures to show you what I did over the big ten-and-a-half week pantry build.

So let me give you a quick, wordless before-and-after tour…

pantry remodel - after 5 - back right corner with floating shelves
pantry remodel - after 9 - back left corner with floating shelves
pantry remodel - after 2 - tall floor to ceiling cabinet
pantry remodel - after 1 - freezer cabinet

Not too shabby, right? 😀 I’m so excited about how this pantry turned out. In fact, I find myself going in there several times a day just to look and stare. The new hasn’t worn off yet, and I think it’ll be a while before I’m used to seeing an actual pantry through those glass doors.

This room is filled with DIY projects from top to bottom, including all of the cabinets, as well as the pull-outs that I made to go inside. The lower cabinet on the right has a pull-out shelf on top and a slotted pull-out drawer on bottom that holds all of my bakeware.

pantry remodel - after 6 - pull out slotted drawer for bakeware and pull-out shelf

The lower cabinet on the left has three pull-out shelves that are all the same size.

pantry remodel - after 13 - pull out shelves on left

And the lower section on the floor-to-ceiling cabinet on the right has six pull-out shelves.

pantry remodel - after 8 - pull-out shelves in tall cabinet

I really wanted the storage above the countertop to be open shelves, and I specifically wanted that to be where I stored my dishes that I bought when I lived in Turkey. They’re just very simple and elegant gold and white dishes, and I have a lot of them, so I stacked them and spaced them out on the open shelves, and then filled in with some decorative items as well as the serving pieces from the Everyday White dishes from Bed, Bath & Beyond. Those are the dishes we use on a daily basis, so I keep the plates, coffee cups, bowls, etc., in the kitchen. But I put the serving pieces, like the big bowls, gravy boat, serving platters, etc., on the open shelves with my Turkish dishes.

The craziest and most time-consuming project in this whole pantry was the tile project. These started out as just plain ole white subway tiles from Home Depot (the cheap ones that are about $0.20 each), and I layered on clear resin and alcohol inks in various shades of green, purple, teal and turquoise to create these crazy colorful custom tiles for the backsplash.

Those tiles definitely top the list as my favorite thing in this pantry. They’re just very “me”. But a close second is the painted freezer. That’s just an inexpensive and very utilitarian upright freezer that we bought at Home Depot. It originally looked like this…

pantry remodel - before the Fall 2018 One Room Challenge - freezer corner

And after some paint and a new handle, it now looks like this…

pantry remodel - after 1 - freezer cabinet

That really is the same freezer. 🙂

I’m so thrilled to have this project finished! I still need to calculate just how much it cost, because I know some of you are curious. If I had to guess right off the top of my head, I’d say it’s somewhere in the $2500 range, including all of the resin for the tiles (resin is expensive!), all of the cabinets, and the new freezer. But I’ll see if I can figure a more accurate estimate.

In the meantime, you can check out all of the DIY projects that went into the pantry right here…

      I have no reason other than “I wanted to.” I love teal. It’s my favorite color. But I wanted something to break up all of the teal. They’re not painted, though. They’re whitewashed oak, which matches the countertop.

    Your Butler’s pantry looks fabulous!!! I am so impressed. My absolute favorite thing is the resin tiles. Every time I see them, I think of carefree summer days playing in the pool with the tile siding at the top. While it is not exactly the same, it has that wonderful overall same look that has such good memories.

    I also love your freezer conversion . . . it makes me contemplate buying a more utilitarian refrigerator and making it into something with the designer look that you have accomplished.

    I know you put this project off for a while but kudos to you for doing all that you did in 10 – 11 weeks and finishing it before year-end.

    Your creativity and talents are amazing!!

    I’m looking forward to more of your projects in 2019. Happy New Year!

    Bravo! It looks stunning and you’ve certainly put lots of thought into making it work perfectly for you.
    Maybe I missed a post, but I’m interested in hearing how you handled the install, wiring and switches for the under-shelf lighting. From reflections on the tile, it looks like it might be an LED tape similar to what you used on your front porch but I’m not sure.

          I agree with you Kristi! I think many people spend way too much time worrying about future buyers and they don’t make their house something that they truly love. Like you say, people will change it anyway to make it suit their style so there’s very little point in worrying too much about it.

        So disappointed by Chsrlotte’s comment – “out there”. So much time and money spent redesigning/redecorating homes to be neutral…for ‘future others’, Why? I want to live in a home that reflects my personality and makes me smile every day. And if that means colourful back splash tiles well, as Kristi has said, numerous times, those tiles make her each and every time she sees them.

        Well done Krisit!

I wouldn’t know how to even begin, but you built your own cabinets and drawers!! I love the painted freezer. How is the paint holding up so far? I’m thinking of painting our fridge since it’s the eyesore in my newly remodeled kitchen. There’s no room to wall it in since it’s only about four inches from the doorway but I’d still like to do something to integrate it into the kitchen. Painting it seems like a great choice, especially since your painted freezer is so stunning.

      I actually didn’t remove them at all. I chose instead to encapsulate them. They’re now buried under a thick layer of concrete, a layer of RedGard waterproofing membrane, one layer of 3/4-inch plywood, and one layer of 3/4-inch solid red oak hardwood flooring that’s sealed with stain and polyurethane. Those asbestos particles aren’t getting out. 😀

      January 3, 2019 at 3:32 pm

      Do you mean when it wouldn’t turn on once it was secured to the ceiling? Ugh…it was such a stupid mistake that caused me so much frustration. I was using the wrong size wire nuts to connect the wires. 😀 The ones I was using were too big and would’t properly grab onto the wires and hold them securely. So I’d connect the wires, turn on the light, and it would come on. But then as soon as I tried to push the light up to the ceiling, the wires inside the large wire nuts would lose connection. It pays to use the proper materials. 😀

      Now the other issue where the canopy wouldn’t sit flat against the ceiling was caused by the fact that the threaded nipple I was attaching it too was about 1/4″ too long, but I was using a very shallow junction box, so I couldn’t just twist it up into the junction box further to solve the problem. Instead, I ended up cutting a very simple, very understated ceiling medallion out of 1/4-inch MDF and attached it to the ceiling, then reinstalled the light. That medallion filled that gap perfectly, and the canopy sits flush against it.

    I LOVE it all! I’m sure it looks even better in person, and I know you worked like a devil to finally finish it! You also styled it nicely! ( But I wouldn’t stack the plates so high, I hear it’s bad for them.) I would have to guess, if it took approx. 11 weeks for this, what is your estimated time for the studio/bath/storage? I’m thinking about six months, if you do all the work yourself. And do you need to have inspections done, or is that not a thing there? I am SO IMPRESSED by your talents with everything you do! I can’t even manage to get my Christmas stuff taken down and put away, LOL!

      I honestly don’t know how long it’ll take. I think the hallway bathroom remodel took me five months, and my original kitchen remodel took seven months. Considering how big the studio/half bath/storage closet/back entry areas are, and how much building they’ll require (so many cabinets!!), I think around six months is a pretty good estimate.

      Remodeling a house built in 1948 to fit today’s needs and wants is a whole lot different than building a custom house from the ground up. When you’re remodeling an old house, sometimes you have to deal with not-so-ideal things. So I carved out space for a pantry in the only area where I could logically do that. You don’t necessarily walk “through” the eating area. The table and chairs are over to the right, and to the left is an unobstructed traffic path that goes from the kitchen, through the breakfast room, and into my studio. The pantry is at the back of the breakfast room on that unobstructed traffic path, and isn’t really close to the table and chairs at all. The pantry is literally six steps from the kitchen, so while it’s not directly connected, it’s also not like I’m having to walk a significant distance. And again, it’s not a food pantry, so I won’t need to be accessing it several times while cooking a meal like you might need to with a food pantry.

    Your pantry is absolutely amazing!!!!
    I love the color on the countertops and the chunky floating shelves… SO jealous of all your neat storage and organization!!!

    You know, to be honest, I was convinced I was absolutely going to hate those tiles, but now that I see them in the room, I actually think they’re kinda neat. For me personally, I think they’d be better without the purple in them. The other colors blend great I think, but with the purple, it ends up looking a bit too “blobby” for me.
    But hey, you’re the color girl so it suits you perfectly for your house.
    I wish I could see them in person to see how the gold sparkling changes the whole effect from the pictures.

    One thing I’d consider changing if I were you is the hinges on the cabinet doors which open towards the center of the room (as opposed to towards the wall or other cabinets). Right now those doors only open about 90 degrees it seems. I can’t tell from the pics if it’s because the hinges themselves limit their range or if the drawers are blocking them from opening more, but even if it’s the latter, they make hinges that have the door come out away from the cabinets a bit so that they can fully open even with a drawer or other door in the way.
    I think that getting that little extra swing on the doors will make it much easier for you to access all your stuff, though I’m sure that it’s finely functional right now.

    Hey Kristi, I’m thinking of removing some windows for some remodeling, but and trying to figure out what the outside would look like. What did you do to the outside when you removed those two windows. Our house is a 1966 Ranch and the brick is hard to replace, so I’m struggling. BTW, SO proud of you for finishing this! You absolutely amaze me.

      The windows we replaced were all on the siding side of the house, and we installed the new windows before the new siding was installed. I do have six windows on the stone side of the house that need to be replaced. I’m a bit nervous about how to handle that! I’m not sure when it’ll happen, but I’d love for it to be this year. If I were you, I’d probably handle a pro to do all of the repairs on the brick.

    The under-cabinet lighting does something really special to your tiles. They glow in the best possible way.
    Something as bold and colorful as those tiles could easily veer into the garish category, but in this pantry, with the coordinating cabinets, bleached wood, classy accessories and the elegant cabinet hardware, they’re just perfect.
    Your finished (and nearly finished) rooms are coming together so cohesively. Each has it’s own, independent design but they seem so complementary of each other. I’m happy for you that you had your 2017 year of missteps (I hope it’s okay that I call it that!! 🙂 ), because it seems like it really set you on the path to create a house that is totally “Kristi” and absolutely beautiful.

      In the close up of the tiles, you can see the outlet cover that matches. I remember her doing these – I did almost the same with my ugly white covers on my granite backsplash. You can take a picture of the granite, print on paper and put on the cover with Mod Podge. I also sprayed over with clear poly for durability and shine. It is hard to even see the outlets now, but much more eye pleasing. I believe Kristi just made them just like she did the tiles. So beautiful, the entire project!

      Scroll up to the photo which shows the 3 drawers that pull-out. Starting on the left side, just above the countertop, follow the grout line between the first & second row of tiles. See where the line is “interrupted”? Those are two of the outlets. It is this attention to detail which elevates Kristi’s design into the realm of OMG!

    I love the final look and the way the pantry flows together with the breakfast room! The colours are lovely together and I’m totally sold on the tiles now (after being a bit dubious about the look when you were still designing them and they were not yet on the wall). Btw, did you actually arrange them prior to glueing them to the wall so that the colours are mixed in that very beautiful way? That cannot be random, surely?
    I’d love to have a pantry like that, I’m glad you chose to use this room like this and I can perfectly understand that you have to go in there all the time and admire it – I would do that frequently, too!!

      Almost everything about the tiles is random. I intentionally did NOT allow myself to start arranging and planning and organizing and obsessing, because with my perfectionism and OCD tendencies, I just knew that if I even went there, I’d never get it done. So I forced myself to just grab tiles at random and adhere them to the wall in a totally random order, with two exceptions. (1) I did pick out my 10 favorite tiles and put them front and center along the back wall, and (2) I did allow myself to go through and discard any tiles that I thought were just downright ugly. Other than that, it’s all random.

I’m with you that this version of the tile decoration is the most beautiful (glad you did them over again until you were sure they are perfect) and it really is a fantastic and unique look!
        I know that you don’t want to sell your house, but if you ever did, I wouldn’t change those tiles to something neutral either – what a horrible thought to get rid of this bautiful work of art (as that is what it is in my humble opinion!)!

I didn’t add any gold to the final layer, and I also didn’t use the heat gun to “marble” the colors. I just dropped the alcohol inks onto the resin, and let them do their thing all on their own without my help.

She’s made it clear that 1, they don’t plan to move; and 2, this is what she loves. And based on the comments, there are plenty of people out there who love these tiles along with her who would happily buy it. Why keep harping from a negative perspective when all her hard work should be celebrated?

        I don’t understand this kind of thinking (and didn’t the first time the poster posted it). Unless you’re military, or other highly mobile work, and know you’ll soon. Or plan to add children soon and out grow a small home.
        I have no plans to sell my house before I (maybe) move into assisted living in two decades. And by then it’ll need lots of redoing anyway. Lots! I’m not living for the next 20 years with someone else’s idea of “acceptable” vanilla decorating (although I do love vanilla ice cream).
        Kristi has stated multiple times that they’re not selling. They intend to stay there for a long, long, long time. They bought a fixer upper and all the structure upgrades alone will have increased the selling price and made the house more appealing. So if in 30 years the colorful tile are still there… so what? The house offers enough extras (a butlers pantry at all is amazing! I would kill for that!) that there will be interest. Plenty.
        Stop living your life waiting on others approval. Make your life yours! Now! (That includes going all white if that’s your thing… you do you!)

I want to live in a home that reflects my personality and makes me smile every day. And if that means colourful back splash tiles well, as Kristi has said, numerous times, those tiles make her each and every time she sees them.

        For one, I’d be glad if the “neutral color palette” went solidly out-of-fashion!! We used to not be concerned about having our houses whitewashed before we sold them—if people didn’t like the colors on the walls or the other fixtures, they changed them after they moved in or lived with what was there.

I have one question about the lighting. How does the pantry look with all the ceiling lights off & just the under-shelf counter lighting on? And, is counter lighting dimmable? I always like lighting that I can turn down to give a room a softer to achieve a more soothing feel until I’m ready to turn lights off completely.

    My gosh woman you are amazing! These colors are not my thing but you make them look awesome! Job well done! Love seeing every thing you do. You motivate me. I do a lot but you make me look like sloth.

    It’s all been said above, so congratulations on a magnificent job. The tile is great and does not need to be neutralized – ever. Should you ever sell the new buyers can have the pleasure? or bad deed of ripping it out, but I think instead it will be a selling point. Looking forward to what 2019 brings. Thanks!

    This is a somewhat unrelated story, but the tiles made me remember I wanted to share it.

    I recently stumbled upon a Facebook Group dedicated to posting photos of weird thrift store finds. Apparently, there was a fad in the 60’s or 70’s of encasing anything and everything in resin (pennies, dried beans, bits of nature, you name it…they resin’d it) and molding household items out of it like ashtrays, clocks (yes, clocks!) and whatnot. This group refers to such finds as “vomit” and it’s kind of like a warped scavenger hunt to find “vomit” pieces and post them to the group.

    I’ve seen some really weird resin pieces this way… It also made me see my gorgeous resin and nature plate that I brought back from Italy (and that I emailed Kristi about) in a slightly new light. 🙂

      So I was reading your comment and where you said “bits of nature” my mind saw it as “bits of manure.” 😂😃 I immediately thought, “OH MY GOSH, WHY WOULD SOMEONE DO THAT?!” When I realized my mistake, I laughed until I cried at the thought of “bits of manure encased in resin and turned into items like ashtrays and clocks.” 😂

        No manure yet, but I did see a post the other day where someone found a rattlesnake in a lump of resin. 🙂

    Also, awesome job on the pantry! This is one of your projects I’ve been waiting for the most. Now, I can’t wait to see the studio.

    Kristi, you are a miracle worker! I love all your projects. Sometimes, I think “oh no”! But then you put it together it’s so beautiful. I am hopeless at any type of reno work. I have trouble pounding a nail correctly to hang a picture! I love, love, love your work. I have recommended your blog many times over. I am always delighted and inspired when a new one arrives via email. Keep up the great work! Looking forward to the studio and more work outside but you have already transformed this old ugly bungalow into something spectacular! I agree with the writer who said “Contact Better Homes and Gardens” – absolutely!

    A beautiful job as always. I’m so in love with those tiles and jealous of your pull out cabinet drawers. I’ll definitely be fancying up my own freezer yours looks so good.

    There’s not one comment I could make that hasn’t already been said—but I am still amazed at this pantry fit for royalty! This teal is absolutely rich and lush—I think I want this on a powder room vanity with a glorious wallpaper. I found just the one on eBay. I’ve forgotten, did you decide to use wallpaper in the studio? Painted cabinets? The cabinet build should go easier now that you’ve got your groove down on them, don’t you think? That freezer is still the bomb—painting a plain white fridge is a whole lot cheaper than buying a Smeg!! 🙄

    Kristi:

    I was thinking about the electrical details of your Butler Pantry project as it relates to a project of mine. How many electrical outlets to do you have? 6? (4 on the tiled walls, 1 for the microwave and another 1 for the freezer?) Or more than 6?

    Thanks!

    Sorry I’m so behind. This pantry should be featured in a magazine. It is sooo beautiful and looks to be very usable (the main thing, right?). My favorite things are the tiles, the open shelving and those bultins. You are AMAZING!

    Sorry I’m a little late to the party, but this is NOT a butler’s pantry; it’s a work of art. Well done!!
