That is the exact same corner. With all the recycling, canning, baking, cooking and everything else I do, I needed more space to put my stuff. It's amazing that with simplifying, you end up needing more space. Odd, but in my case, true. If I don't want to go to the store all the time, I need to have someplace to put all of the stuff needed to preserve and use all of our food.
I've always been a kitchen kind of person, so over the years I've acquired a good deal of kitchen stuff. It all gets used and it all takes up space. Before, I was storing a lot of this in my basement. After I almost killed myself dragging things up and down the stairs, I decided it would be prudent to have it stored nicely up here.
The new shelving is Gorm from Ikea. I was able to put it together by myself, but needed J to come over and bolt it to the wall. The baking cart and other shelves have been around for a while and came from stuffmart.
I had originally planned to get rid of the shelves, but I think I may keep them. The jury is still out. The baking cart is staying. J really wants it, but he can't have it! It holds my Kitchen Aid and all my baking supplies. I just wheel it over to the counter and do my thing. You can see that my kitchen leads into my school room. That is my main bookshelf for my school supplies. The wall hanging was made by my very talented mother.
So, that took me a bit, and will continue to take up quite a bit of my time. It is however, functional now and I can actually cook dinner without a major breakdown. Hubby will be very excited.
