Goodbye Mr Yuck Pantry

…or… “What I Did With My Week’s Holiday”…

….pantry inserted into old kitchen entry at end of hallway circa “when-everything-was-built-with-horrid-MDF”….sans ugly fake wood grain doors….

…enter 4+ days of hard, no building experience, labour….

…scratch built from a couple of pieces of rimu I got from friends, a huge rimu cabinet with three sliding doors that came from the folks new house, a couple of pallets from work and part of the counter from that shop I used to own…

…almost everything fits….

…and it makes me dislike my freezing cold pre 1900, mucked about by philistines, kitchen a little less….especially with it’s new found expansive sweeping views up the hallway….

….(actually, this will be blocked up again and I’m having a whole-house-heating log burner installed)….(just in time for the end of spring)….

What Is A Boy To Do

…..that’s it….less than a crate of stock left…three items still to be collected….the large radio station record unit (that’s still in the pictures) has gone to it’s new forever home….

…the record shop is finally closed….(apart for some tax stuff)…

…now I can have my hallway back….

…and my free time?….

…I’ll be dealing with these….IMG_0449IMG_0450IMG_0451

…75 or so “donor” paintings, just waiting to be “Otcopied”, that have amassed whilst I’ve been busy….

…(has anyone seen my paint brushes?)….

…(and why does there seem to be rather of a lot of wooden items accumulating ’round the house?…are they possibly associated with “Toneware”)….

….(hmmm, I’m going to be busy, aren’t I?).
