What I Forgot to Add in
Our Kitchen Remodel
I have a confession. While I LOVED renovating our kitchen–i.e. tearing down walls, ripping out cabinets, laying new flooring…the big stuff–picturing the functionality of the end result was a bit difficult for me. I was so focused on the layout and materials that I forgot to think about the little add-ons that really make a space function. A rack for spices, a holder for large pans, an organizer for new drawers, etc. In my defense, our old kitchen only had two base cabinets and one drawer, so “stuff in anything that fits” was the name of the game. But now that we have more storage, I’m finally realizing there are more than a few after-the-fact projects making their way onto my master To Do List. In the first of what I’m guessing will be many of these type projects, I’ve drawn-up a drawer organizer with wings that expand to fit any drawer width 13- to 21-inches. It could also be downsized to fit in a dresser or vanity as well. Also, in case you missed it earlier this week, I spilled my DIY secret for getting a perfectly straight cut without using a fancy table saw, which comes in handy if you’re making today’s project.
Sooo…If you’re reading between the lines, you can tell I’m shamelessly hoping for some advice! Is there something you can’t live without in your kitchen that I should add to my list? Drop me a note in the comment section below!
