As many of you know, we remodeled our kitchen over two years ago, however, we did not update our kitchen appliances at the same time. Our appliances, while several years old, were still in good working condition. My kitchen pantry and desk area were two areas of the kitchen we still had plans to update. I have always wanted to have a pretty pantry with some glass French Doors.
Working with Lowe’s and Frigidaire Professional, we were able to update our pantry, the kitchen desk, add some new light fixtures, and update our appliances.
Before the update, our pantry had these bifold doors. They were functional and hid away the mess of our pantry. There wasn’t anything wrong with them, but I had always loved kitchens with beautiful, visible, and organized pantries. So I knew that someday I would add some pretty French Doors. I am so happy with how it turned out!

We removed the old shelving, which was simply boards on shelving brackets. Then we took some pre-made closet towers from Lowe’s to create the shelving and drawers inside of the pantry. In a later post, we will share with you how we built the pantry, along with how we updated our kitchen desk, and the products we used from Lowe’s.
We added this fun Pendant Light from Lowe’s over the kitchen sink. I love how unique and different it is. The other light we had really didn’t do much for the space. The light has now become more of a focal point by adding some interest to the sink area and ties in the oil bronzed hardware we have throughout the kitchen.
You can actually move the pendant light up and down with the pulley and adjust it to your preferred height. I love the light it provides while I am working in the kitchen.

We also added these mini Pendant Lights over the counter top. They provide some decoration as well as great lighting. The kids spend a lot of time as this counter working on homework, projects, eating lunch or helping with dinner preparations.

I love the clear glass as opposed to the opaque glass pendants we had before. We added some antique looking light bulbs in the pendant lights.
Frigidaire supplied us with new appliances from their Frigidaire Professional collection, which is available at Lowe’s. The Frigidaire Professional appliances fit perfectly into my standard kitchen, so I didn’t have to remove any of my kitchen cabinets or change my kitchen layout.
I love the look and feel of the Frigidaire Professional appliances and they deliver consistency, precision and freshness which in turn can help me to offer a variety of great tasting meals and food for my family. The appliances resist fingerprints and clean easily due to the appliances Smudge-Proof Stainless Steel.

The range features PowerPlus® Convection for consistently more even results, especially when baking multiple items at once. This is especially important for me because I have a large family, and often find myself needing to bake two casseroles or several loaves of bread at the same time.
The range also features the PowerPlus® Temperature Probe which allows you to set and monitor dish temperature to ensure great results. With PowerPlus® Preheat the oven is ready in a few minutes which allows a powerful start to your baking. For further product information and details, go here: Frigidaire Professional Series Range.
The Frigidaire Professional Microwave allows you to bake more evenly at microwave speed, all-in-one. With teenage boys and their friends in the home, the microwave gets a lot of use for second lunches and second dinners!
With several pre-timed cooking settings, your food can be heated at just the right power level and time to produce great heating results.
The French Door Refrigerator optimizes space, and preserves freshness and taste with an innovative PureAir Ultra Filtration System. The filtration system removes up to 7 times more odor than baking soda by removing odor particles with fast acting, highly absorbing carbon technology.
As a family of seven, our fridge tends to be full to overflowing to allow for our family’s needs. The side by side french doors have allowed us plenty of space for our needs.
The Frigidaire Professional Dishwasher can wash dishes in a quarter of the time with its PowerPlus® 30 Minute Wash cycle. The OrbitPower™ Wash Technology offers four times better wash coverage. Dishes are cabinet ready with the PowerPlus® Dry technology.
We go through a lot of dishes with seven mouths (and their friends) in our home. Sometimes we run multiple washes a day and the 30 Minute Wash is a life saver, allowing us to wash the dinner dishes in time to serve dessert on the same dishes 30 minutes later.
I am so happy with the overall updates to our kitchen space. I spend a lot of time here by myself and with the family members. The kitchen is one of our main gathering spaces and it is important to me to have a space I can feel at home in and enjoy with my people.
Finally, we updated our kitchen desk area. We built some drawers that have a much needed purpose in our home. Come back to see what we created them for! I will be sharing a tutorial for the pantry and the kitchen desk in a later post.
