If you recall we started with this wet bar that was never used and was basically a catch-all, black hole in the kitchen. See my cook book collection? I donated 45 cookbooks to the library. I still kept my sentimental favorites which fill a good size shelf but I get most of my recipes from the internet these days don't you?
Thanksgiving day the project looked like this. A lot of hammering was going on and dust was flying while fixed dinner.
Two weeks later - TA DA!!
We salvaged the base cabinet from the wet bar to reuse. It turned to be way too big for the new space space so out came the saws-all.
Chris added molding and end pieces and sanded it all down and thenit was my turn to stain and paint. River photo bomb!
It's amazing what some elbow grease can accomplish.
New handles and hinges and we moved it in place. Perfect fit and it matches the kitchen cabinets with no cost to us.
Just look at all the storage space I acquired just steps from my food prep area. I could not be happier.
This end of the kitchen is so much more attractive and functional now with extra electrical plugs and a space to charge cell phones, a message center and my best loved cook books.
A new kitchen floor is next. Any ideas on what that should be?
Until next time,
