This is my second big project. Our home is rather small and my wife was in desperate need of a pantry. I was worried how well I could do with making everything square. I used 3/4” birch plywood for the case and shelves. The shelves are permanently attached with Kreg screws and glue. I used a HVLP gun I purchased from Harbor Freight to spray on the primer. I was really impressed with its performance…especially since I had never used one..lol. I painted the interior of the top doors with Valspar chalkboard paint and it works great. My wife chose to use colors that would match the existing colors of the kitchen. Had a lot of fun with this one.

Beautiful craftsmanship on this pantry, it came out great. I like the contrasting paint scheme, very nice indeed.

Very well executed. These big projects are hard, IMHO, but you did a fantastic job.
