Have you looked at my Very Favorite Piece in my home? Go on over to the Gallery and check out my cabinet.
My postage size kitchen was in extreme need of storage when I bought my house. I still need better storage, but thanks to the addition of the cabinet, I have space for my dishes, counter appliances, and extra bits and pieces that aren’t needed every day.
The cabinet itself is a combination of a base cabinet, a wall cabinet, an over the fridge cabinet, and a countertop. It is screwed together, handles were added and it sits in the perfect spot in the kitchen.
There were no special tools required; a drill and a screwdriver were all that were needed.
This project came about thanks to a couple of handy friends who volunteered to do the heavy lifting and other work after I found what I wanted. My intention was to create something like a Hoosier cabinet but without the cost.
When you think about things you want in your home and space is an issue, check the options available at your local hardware or home center. I looked for finished cabinets, but there are unfinished as well as custom options.
I went in this direction rather than order a custom cabinet or buy prefab items because the prefab usually doesn’t come in the size I needed and the custom would have been more expensive than my budget could handle.
Don’t be afraid to look outside the box. You never know what you might discover that will be Perfect For Your Home.
