The excitement is mounting as work on the look of the butler's pantry. I want to keep the Victorian-ness but add my glam twist.
So, I already know that I want the black cabinets.. I will look for a gray-black paint.. probably make a trip to Lowe's tomorrow for samples.
Next up is new hardware for the cabinets. I found some really pretty pulls at House of Antique Hardware. This site reproduces America's historic hardware which was perfect for me because I wanted hardware that was keeping in the era of my house.
I've also learned from the site, that my house is the Shingle style architecture, which came late to the Victorian era party and thusly, less ornate than the older sister and almost synonymous with Victorian homes , the Queen Anne.
Ok, so back to the pretty hardware I chose. The first photo is for the upper cabinets and the second photo, the lower cabinets.
Then, I headed over to Overstock for lighting options. I liked all of these and it was a plus that they all received great reviews.
What say you? Do you have a fav? Or should I keep looking?
