An old historic home is often so much larger than newer subdivision homes. That can be especially true for those of us on tighter budgets. The house we are currently living in has very little kitchen cupboard space and – oh my! That can be so frustrating, can’t it. We have to stockpile some of our canned goods in the garage. Then we forget we put them there, buy more, and yikes! Too many cans! Of course, that’s great when the Thanksgiving charity drives start collecting canned goods! But a bit frustrating the rest of the year.
Compare those too few and too small cupboards with this gorgeous pantry cupboard in one of my favorite old historic homes. It’s HUGE, it’s SPACIOUS, and it even has glass doors. Perfect for china or if you already had a china hutch, you could also use this lovely built in cupboard and drawers to store canned goods or everyday plates and see at a glance what you’re out of. And you still have even more storage space in the updated cupboards all around the sink and stove OR in the spacious island.
Right now, though, it does have the lovely China dishes with pretty PINK pictured at the top of this article, just to welcome you to this Pink Saturday post! Oh my, I really do love those spacious areas in vintage homes. They are so sweetly reminiscent of another era, one that was a bit slower paced and maybe a tad on the gracious side. And still just as practical in today’s speedy drive-thru era. What do you think?
