I think I’ll keep him :)

Today is a grand day!! Today you get to see my kitchen!!

As I have mentioned many times before, my kitchen is extremely tiny with no storage space and a depressing amount counter space. Despite all this, it is still my favorite place to be.
As of last night I have a new addition that solves A LOT of my space issues!

See, my Nerd is a bit of a Renaissance Man and can do anything. Yes, anything (including renovating his mother’s entire house, skylights and all). After two long years of suffering in our tiny kitchen, he whipped up a large shelf for the kitchen last night in his wood shop!! I love love LOVE him:)

Check it out!!!

As you can see, the top shelf is a bit empty (will be heading to IKEA soon for more jars), Nerd has two of his own shelves for his specialty beer glass collections, and at the bottom is an area for recycling!

So here is the view of my kitchen as of this morning before making David Lebovitz’s German Chocolate Cake (I will post that next week if it came out as delicious as it should)!

In the cabinets now are all the appliances that we were having to keep in a storage bin in the closet! Yipeee!

Nerd’s next project: An island. Nothing fancy, but more work space!!!
Pictures soon!
