Butler's pantry makeover

We have this little nook between the kitchen and our front room/playroom.  We had 2 IKEA kitchen carts with a table cloth for the last 6 years. It's only 45 inches wide and 27 inches deep. Opposite of this space is our half bathroom.  When we started this project we thought we were going to completely finish it.  We decided that we are going to redo the kitchen this year and all the floors downstairs!!!! So we didn't fully complete this project yet.  I have been wanting to add cabinets here since we moved in 6 years ago!!
This is the before.  The cleaned up before LOL Usually there is a TON of crap sitting on top! 
We cleaned the space out and had an outlet added at counter height.

Then while Hubby was out with PB...

I ripped the carpet, carpet pad and moulding out.  I used a circular saw and surprised them with getting this part done.  PB was super impressed.  

I added some leftover cork from our basement redo.  

And this is where we decided we were going to add the finished counter top when we redo the kitchen and floors.  We wanted to be able to take out the bottom cabinet and kegerator so the new floors could run under there.   

We stuck a top from one of our old kitchen carts on the cabinet.  Now we can use the space! The cabinets hold all our wine and champagne glasses.  The one over the kegerator hold all Hubbys beer glasses!! Now I have extra space in my kitchen!! That has been really exciting.

My mom and I are going to start measuring and planning the kitchen.  These are IKEA cabinets and I plan on doing an IKEA kitchen too.  I can't wait to start the next step!!!!
