I'm planning to move a living room closet door around the corner to the kitchen, converting that space from a coat closet to a pantry. The area juts into the kitchen already, and there are no electrical switches on the two walls involved. This will free up one corner of the living room for the TV/entertainment stand.

Can someone give me a 'check list' of what I need to do? I have some experience in finishing drywall, painting and can hammer a nail, but not confident about the trimming, or the cutting.
