Willow Decor

Above all things, you should know that the Academy Awards were spectacular! I don't remember the last time I enjoyed it that much! My "husband" was in the front row (with some skinny chick right by him), and my "best friend" won! A good night, indeed!

Now onto bigger and better things. I have professed my love for butler's pantries before, and today I stumbled on a slice of heaven. Willow Decor found (come on--who FINDS these things) a way to make a butler's pantry out of a small office off her kitchen. You ready?

Here's before...

And here's the after...




I KNOW!! Dreamy, right? Just so you don't go thinking she got lucky with one room, here's what she did to the adjoining kitchen!
Before...

And after...
There's plenty more where that came from over at her blog. I visited every.single.page today. Do stop by! And tell her that some crazy chick with a fetish for butler's pantries sent you over. Don't tell her it's me...just some crazy chick. She'll NEVER figure it out!

Oh my gosh, I love it! My biggest peave in my kitchen is there is no desk area. So I love how the laptop has it's own space there without looking like it needs to be moved off the counter.

W.O.W. I am officially swooning. Although that seems to be a common thread every time I visit your blog. I'm just starting to get into this whole blogging thread and my DH hates it- I have way too may ideas/projects now!

SO glad to have found you! And, thanks again for the mention -When you are in Boston you'll have to stop by for tea and see the kitchen and pantry in real life!!!

Oh my Gosh.......wait,I have to shut my mouth, if fell to the floor. I can't remember loving something soooo much. Boy, some women are so lucky huh? Did you notice her green and white dishes? I was totally in heaven when I saw those. Man, I have to get pen and paper in hand to figure out where I could have one of those. Where are you putting your butler's pantry? Lets dream together. I am on my way to her blog. BYE..."Heart Pounding"

Oh yeah, the Academy Awards was spectacular, especially with Hugh Jackman hosting it. That guy is a complete package. :)
I love the changes on your pantry. Those chairs are perfect for the elegant white motif.
