You might remember the adamant statement that our pantry door was temporary… or the dilemma over finding a replacement? Well after months of saved search emails from Trademe with no appropriate doors forthcoming, we’ve decided to embrace the solid sliding door and turn it into something a little more functional and fun for all the family.

It’s just easier, and lets the light in. Still, it’s nice to know I can shut it when royalty comes for dinner.
