Butler's Pantry-After

I love this room, BUT it is ridiculously difficult to photograph. Again, like the other rooms I've been working on, there is a before and now I am somewhat close to an after.  This room is a heavily used room in our house.  It sits between the kitchen and the dining room and for the large portion of the year is used as a workspace.  For the remaining portion of the year (when we have parties) it serves as a bar.  Last Friday, 11-12-10 was the debut of this room avec bar setting.  This week, it was turned back into that of a workspace.
