I settled down to get through my checklist of things to do in the butler’s pantry.
Crack in the back right-hand corner filled and painted. Check.
Ceiling trimmed and glued on. Check.
Angles between walls and ceiling painted. Check.
Wooden strips cut out 3/8″ across to make cabinet doors. Check.
Four doors measured, cut, glued, stained and varnished….
Oh…right…didn’t quite get those done. Two of them have been measured, cut, and glued but that’s it for tonight.
I’ll leave you for now with a view of both rooms next to each other–the most utilitarian of servant workrooms on the left, and the pantry leading out of the staff quarters and into the dining-room on the right. The difference in style is rather striking.
