Farmhouse Pantry

The Barn door cabinet / pantry is one of my favorite Ana White plans. This is the second one I’ve made and this time I challenged myself to use almost all repurposed materials. I wanted to use old doors so I adjusted the plans around them. He sides are an old door I cut in half and the main sliding door is also an old find I cleaned up. The shelves are actually old flat cabinet doors that I covered in laminate flooring (remnant box for $5). I like using laminate flooring to add character and protect high traffic areas from wear and tear. On the right side I added a display counter for your coffee center, tv, or microwave. I added a sconce because everything is cooler with a sconce! I used 2 sheets of galvanized tin on the back. My favorite feature though is the recycling center I added at the bottom. I just made some simple door frames with 1x4s stripped in half and then covered them in chicken wire and old Pioneer seed sacks.
I love Ana Whites Pantry design because it adds soo much storage and is completely customizable!

Finish Used
I used Rustoleums white linen chalk paint and Rustoleums matte finish. I used polyacrylic to seal the butcher block counter in satin.
I use two coats of paint and then sand with a 220 grit sandpaper to make the paint smooth as butter. I apply extra pressure on all edges to distress. I then add two coats of the matte finish.
