Default Kitchen coup!!

My kitchen is a work in progress. It looked wonderful when we were buying the house, but as time passes, we find more and more defects.

A week ago I found a charming rolling cart that would work as a cabinet against the wall — space for covered storage beneath, a couple of drawers, and counters for the mixer, food processor, toasters, and so on.

It was from J.C. Penney and cheap, so I hesitated, then decided to order two of them because we could return them to the local store. Here is the picture of the thing (and I got the red paint and stainless top, just as shown). We will skip the spice rack/towel bar at the end, and array two of them against a wall.

Well, I am very pleased. It is made of wood, for the most part (back panels are masonite), everything is well labeled and the instructions are clear and accurate. There was one error (a shelf we do not intend to use came with the wrong bracket), and it took Jack the better part of two days to assemble the two cabinets, but they look pretty good.

Now I can move the KitchenAid mixer, food processor, toaster oven, toaster, and a couple of other things off the island onto these two cabinets. The steel “chef’s” shelves will be moved into a side room which will be our utility room/pantry.

Life is okay. <g>

Nothing to do with DTP, but a lot to do with peace of mind! <g>
