So he conceded but said he really hated the hinges. The hinges?! So here was my solution to those eyesore hinges.
In our basement, we have a built in cabinet/counter area that used to be part of a kitchenette that we ripped out during our basement renovation. We decided to keep this built in, because I thought it would be perfect for a snack/beverage area to use when entertaining.

I have a huge grease problem in my kitchen, plus I have black appliances so it shows EVERYTHING. It's just horrible and disgusting. We clean the appliances with the grease cutting dish soap which only does so much. So after years and years of the grease gunk piling on, I decided to try something new: baking soda.
