Can You Guess What This Will Be

I will be doing more painting in the kitchen this weekend and in between I have another project to work on.

Can you guess what I am making out of these?  Yes, they are for the kitchen and ignore the board the crystals are on. It was just so you can see the crystals.

Hubby Made Two Cabinets From One

Our Kitchen is small so we have to make sure every space is used the best it can be. We are just not painting the kitchen but redoing lot of things with the cabinets. If you look at this picture you will see a small door. Behind that door is a huge cabinet with a lazy susan. It was hard putting things in it because of the size of the door. I mainly used it for storage and it was still wasted space.

           Here is what the cabinet looked like after we opened it up and took out the lazy susan and cut it straight. You can see in the picture above it came out at an angle.

             Here is what it looks like now. I hated the trash can just sitting in the kitchen. The only place to put it was near a vent, as you can see in the first picture.  I had to empty it alot so it would not smell in the winter when the heat was on.

 I looked at Lowes Online and found this in the cabinet trashcan. I have to tell you I hate their online site. At first I saw one with a lid and when I went back to order it, you cannot get it at the store, I only found one without a lid. I knew I saw one so I called and asked the Lowes clerk. She said they do not make one with a lid. So I ordered this one. I love it, but I kept thinking I did see one with a lid. I went back online and I finally found it. Too late to buy and replace, but I did find a lid sold separately. I did not want to pay the extra 21.00 so I just forgot about it.

 After thinking long and hard I decided to order it and could not find it online. I called Lowes and the clerk said they do not sell them separately. Again I knew I saw it and I went back and it took me a while to find it and I ordered it. Even though I do have problems with the Lowes close to us we still buy from them. The others are just too far to drive.

    Now to get back to the cabinet, as you can see we are using one for the trash can and one for bottled water and paper towels.  We started to use bottled water after the water problem last January in our State. We still do not trust drinking it, so we now use bottled water for drinking.

 Hubby is also going to hand make the doors for these cabinets. He has never done anything like that so I am wondering how they will turn out. I love how the trash can just rolls out.

    This week I am giving the kitchen the final coats of paint on the walls and it is looking good.
