DIY Kitchen Pantry

Our Style Saturdays events are one of the most popular aspects of the Princess Margaret showhome — so popular, in fact, that they filled up fast! Year after year, House & Home experts demo the latest in decorating and home trends. This past Saturday, House & Home DIY gurus Michael Penney (left) and Joel Bray (right), in collaboration with Ikea, demonstrated how to turn an Ikea wardrobe into a pantry. Don’t worry if you missed it, though — Michael and Joel will be creating a similar pantry in an upcoming episode of Online TV!

And here’s Joel, giving another audience member advice. (The DIY demonstration took place in the showhome basement — see a tour of the space.)

As well as great decorating and entertaining tips, guests were treated to yummy snacks, like these Purdy’s chocolates.
