Pantry Space

My friends and neighbors are awfully trusting of this self-taught carpenter! This is my first time building shelves for a pantry. There were high ceilings to add shelves all the way up and just enough room for a custom spice rack. There is usually wasted space in new homes. Pantries and closets with high ceilings could always use extra shelving for more storage. The laminated shelving works better in this pantry than the short metal ones used before (upper left).

For diapers, lotion, powder and such....

Custom diaper box to match baby blanket material.

Coastal Dining Decor

I made this centerpiece for my own table out of wood. Paint, starfish knobs, sand and seashells and I have a beachy table decoration. It will be fun to change the contents for holidays.

Beach Craft

 I saw something similar to this paint brush craft used for a beach wedding. The bride and groom's names and wedding date were printed on the handle and they were set in a basket for guests. 
I painted mine for welcome baskets as I wanted my Florida guests to have some beach goodies when they got here.
