Drawers, Drawers, Drawers

Hello! Here’s a fun new creation by my friends over at Concepts Created, who built my beautiful dining table. I have always loved apothecary cabinets with all their wonderful little drawers. This one, built of reclaimed wood with dozens of different knobs is so much fun. This was actually built for a shop that sells knobs, but I think it would be an amazing accent piece in a home.

Behind Closed Doors

Hello! It’s another snowy day here. I’m itching to get out and hunt down some Design Finds, but that will have to wait! Instead, I thought I’d continue to make good on my promise to show you some more of the little details that I love about our remodeled kitchen. Today – inside the cabinets!

I am a huge fan of tall pantry cabinets. Look how much you can store – and the 15″ depth of these cabinets is just the right size to fit everything in and be able to see it!

The next pantry cabinet over is customized to hold our cheese/carving boards, baking sheets and muffin tins:

We didn’t have space in our layout for a Lazy Susan, so we opted for a blind corner cabinet with Hafele LeMans pullouts:

image

The pullouts are S shaped and snake out of the cabinet, allowing use of the normally wasted space in the corner. The bottom shelf shown here holds the food processor and the popcorn maker.

To keep the countertop as clutter free as possible, we installed an appliance garage for the toaster:

The appliance garage cabinet also provides a great place to end the tile backsplash.

We don’t have a ton of trash, but we do seem to have a ton of recycling, so we installed separate pullouts for each. This one is for recycling:

And this one is for trash:

The trash is right next to the sink and the main prep area. I have a large drawer right there to hold my knives and cutting boards. Everything I need in one place!

I’ve saved the best for last – this cabinet is in the dining room. As most of our mail sorting and bill paying gets done downstairs (even though our office space is upstairs), we installed a pullout drawer and an electrical outlet in one of our dining room cabinets so we could put the shredder downstairs. Very handy!

What would you use them for? At only $3.99 each, a lot of fun could be had with these!
