my idea of kitchens may be against the contemporary standards as I have a very small one and I look upon a kitchen as a work shop not a place to ooh and ahh over.
Time: 60 HoursCost: $10Difficulty: Medium
Since my space is so limited I have open shelving and little room for an open cookbooks so I often print recipes out or clip them from the paper. I pin them at eye level for ease in reading.
I loved this wooden crate. So I took the end with the printed image, turned it so that it could be hinged to the bottom of the box. Then I placed it into my cupboard so that I could place baking necessities in it. Flour/sugar are in the canisters which are from the '40's. Bottled products like oils/syrups etc are kept in under counter storage. I can bake a cake without moving my position, just pivoting.
These very inexpensive plastic boxes hang on the beadboard wall and are unbelievably useful. They hold small kitchen tools, tea bags, twist ties, etc. etc. These kitchen does not have one built in drawer.
free standing many drawer small unit. Holds a multitude of items, silverware, junk drawer, lots of misc. kitchen tools etc. Was once a letter holder somewhere. My Dad and then my husband made the drawers.
shelving over southern kitchen window. Holds some of my china collection. Also holds colanders, strainers etc.
