Farmhouse Pantry Doors

I wanted to show you my reorganized, repainted laundry room today, but it's not done.  It didn't turn out to be a one-coat venture so I'm still working on it.  I thought that instead I would show you a fun feature in my home.  When we have people over for the first time, it's always something people notice and really like. 

These are our pantry doors.  We did NOT make them, but I thought seeing them might give you some ideas.  While I can't answer technical questions about them or their construction, I tried to take good pictures so you can see just how they were made.


We bought this huge lock (at Tai Pan Trading if you live in Utah) to put on the doors.


They have these cool hinges.


This is the backside.  Nothing fancy.  You just see the planks and they weren't sanded or textured like the front.


You can see that the boards are doubled up around the border, leaving a recessed area inside it.


There you have it.  They give the kitchen a warm, home-like feeling.


Tomorrow is wake up Wednesday and then Thursday I'll show you my laundry room.  Thanks for stopping in.

Those doors are beautiful! They actually look pretty easy to make, but your hardware really makes them! Trying to think of a place3 in our home where we could try this. Wonder if hubby would go for the the closet in the master bedroom?

Quick question: Can you tell me how they stay shut when you do not have them latched with the lock? Are there magnets on the back?

these doors rock my face off. they are gorgeous...

Stephanie - They don't have a problem staying shut on their own. We don't usually have it latched, but there is a sliding lock at the top of the left door that's drilled into the casing so you can lock one side. Does that make sense? I hope so.

Ooh! Gorgeous! I only have 1 door on my pantry....I'm thinking I may just have to do somethings like this to keep it interesting. Thanks so much for sharing!

Those are awesome! I'll have to keep that in mind for one day when I have the house of my dreams...which is DEFINITELY NOT my current house! I'm totally stuck in a rut here and finally decided that since I don't see us moving anytime soon, I'll have to redecorate and craft it up a bit. Decorating has never been my thing so we'll see how that goes!!!

Ashley said...

love them...also gotta love tai pan:)

Unknown said...

um, those are ridiculously awesome, just so you know. Also, causing me to sin. THOU SHALT NOT COVET, LAURA.
My pantry right now is made by Rubbermaid and is sitting halfways in my livingroom because my hubby had to tear out our built in pantry due to poor construction of our house, it was getting mold in the wall. Blech. So in addition to the 'pantry' halfways in my livingroom, I actually also have drywall mud on about 1/3 of my kitchen area wall. Tadaaa~! Classy decorating, that's how we do.

Anja said...

I love it! Wish I had a pantry in the kitchen (I always have to run downstairs to the basement - and a door like this would be wasted in this very crappy room ;o))
