Eleven Gables Butler's Pantry


Here it is!  The Butler's Pantry, Laundry Room, Wrapping room, Craft room!  

  
What was once a tiny laundry closet, with the only door leading out to the pool, is now one of my favorite spaces in my home.  









Countertops are Caesarstone in London Grey,
Backsplash is custom beadboard




The faucet was saved from my old kitchen while the apron front sink is new.  This one is now discontinued, but I found the same brand, similar style kitchen faucet here or bathroom faucet here.







Corbels help add an extra architectural element




I really love to hang dry my clothes but I don't enjoy the space that my old drying rack took. I used the parts from this drying rack and made what you see here!




I love my laundry basket system!   
Now, to get the boys to actually put their dirty clothes IN the baskets!!




The huge turtle shell was found by my oldest son.  I cleaned it up then shellacked it.  




The ribbons are held in the drawer using curtain tension rods




Acrylic drawers help keep my boys organized.





Yes, I totally spray painted my pencil sharpener!!  Isn't it fab?!




Life with five males lends itself to eating a lot of food. Baskets help keep my pantry area organized. 






After spending HOURS trying to construct a  wooden can holder thingy off Pinterest that ultimately didn't work very well (cans wouldn't roll to the front), I tried these stackable baskets and they were the PERFECT solution!  
I love a happy accident. 


I have since found THESE and although they are taller, they will work beautifully in a pantry.




Who doesn't love a pocket door?!  This pocket door was the original door that lead out of the laundry room to the pool.  It was important to get light into the hallway, so we refinished, converted, and installed it in this location. I think it adds so much charm.



Chinoiserie Love




These gorgeous gold-dipped bowls were made here.












I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my workhorse.  Now, back to reality!

  2. Oh WOW, Emily! Is it wrong that I am SO jealous of this space? How great that it has so many functions, yet is so incredibly beautiful! The drying rack drawer and the ribbons on tension rods??? Genius! Pretty sure I'd just pull a bed in there and make that my room! :)

  9. How clever to make the laundry room, usually a dark, isolated room, into such a happy, inviting space! After all, moms spend so much time doing laundry. It may as well be a beautiful experience. I would gladly spend all day in this room! I also love your attention to detail like the French wire cabinets and pearl knobs. How brilliant to also make this your pantry and craft room. Your organization methods are incredible! I love everything about this room! You are A Domestic Goddess!

    1. Erika, That is just the nicest thing. I just started this little blog a few months ago and Boy! has it been a learning curve!! I had NO IDEA I would need to learn all this coding, etc. It has been quite the challenge with 4 little boys begging for my attention. I don't know how YOU do it. FIVE!!! Be sure and follow me on Instagram! @elevengables. I MIGHT have a little addiction there. :) xoxo, Emily

    1. Vanessa, if you hover over the word "stackable basket" above the canned good picture, it will take you to the amazon link and show you where to purchase the basket! I hope that helps. xo

  41. Beautiful! We have been desperately trying to come up with some ideas for our laundry/pantry. Can you please give me the dimensions of your pantry cabinets? They appear to be deeper on the bottom two shelves...is that for heavier or bulk items?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kathy, I basically found the baskets that I wanted to use in the pantry, then customized the pantry around them. The bottom two shelves are 20" deep, while the uppers are 15" deep. The width was determined on my basket width. I wanted to fit two large baskets side by side. Hope that helps.

  42. Beautiful room!!! I think my favorite picture though is "Back to Reality". I too have what I think is a pretty awesome laundry room and would like it to stay perfectly staged all the time - but as we all know that isn't reality. It's easy to look at all these beautiful pictures on Pinterest and think things look like this all the time...

    I have spent more hours than I want to admit on the can food storage thingy too and your baskets are brilliant...do you remember where you got them.
