First Stop - Easy Appliance Cabinet
This spot was originally a small eating nook. Housing two stools and very rarely used. No one ever wanted to eat here. I mean who would? While everyone else is gathered around a huge table, two little guys would be facing the wall. Not fun!
I don't know why it takes me so long to decide it's okay in my own home to alter things. I finally made the decision to get those stools out of there and put this corner to good use.
I do a lot of cooking and I have a lot of kitchen gadgets. My cupboards are all bursting at the seems (another blessing). I decided if all the blenders, crockpots, mixers, and bread machines were in one spot, they' ld be easier to get to. Thus, more ORGANIZED! Love it!
So, for my birthday I asked my husband for labor only. Smart right?
In just one afternoon, he built some shelves.
I used a tension rod and placed it just under the edge of the counter. I sewed a curtain out of a cute checkered tablecloth that doesn't fit my table. And there you have it.
I am now the owner of a fabulous kitchen with one of those special skinny cabinets just for appliances.
It also makes a great hiding spot for the kids.
