Building a wall pantry beside existing cabinets
1 Attachment(s)

I'm wanting to build a pantry against my existing cabinets in the kitchen. The dim. are 40" wide max by 25" deep max. How would you finish the drywall/paint on the wall adjacent to the cabinets? My other option would be custom built cabinets @ 1000.00
This is my first diy project so all advice and help are greatly appreciated!!

You can do this with off the shelf cabinets. The key is to only make your pantry cabinet the same depth as your upper cabinets. Buy 2 or 3 sets of upper cabinets that you can stack and attach to each other. If they end up the exact same height as you existing upper, you can continue the crown molding across the top of your pantry. If not, you can build your pantry higher and do your crown molding like the picture I attached.

You can build a matching toe-kick height and depth out of 2 x 4 lumber and face it to match your other cabinets' toe-kick.

Exactly what I did over on the other side, except I bought the face frame from the manufacturer too. Had to match the stain...
