New Kitchen Additions
My house is only 657 sq ft, so, as you can imagine, I have to be creative in how and where I store my things. The one good thing about having such a small abode is that I cannot collect much crap (it helps that I’m not a pack rat in the least–I get this from my mom). Luckily, my boyfriend is incredibly adept at building things; I like to call him “Handy Andy.”
Being that I am avid cook, cookware and cookbooks are the few things that I do seem to collect more and more of. As you can see, where I used to store my pots and pans was not idea; in fact it drove Andy crazy trying to get anything out of that small space. So, we had the idea of (1) building a pot rack that would hang from the large beam that goes across my kitchen ceiling, and (2) making a bookshelf (for cookbooks) high up and (3) building shelves above the kitchen/prep table.
Didn’t he do an awesome job?! And all the wood is recycled–Andy got it from his buddies.
