Sigh... here they are

Here they are, I'm experimenting with how to "dress" them


and all naked just as they were completed


We started with this

We have a ton more storage now.  It was one of those projects that went anything but smoothly and was filled with frustration.   Going from the baker's rack you can see here to built in cabinetry is a serious upgrade so I'm trying to move forward from a sour experience and enjoy the end result.  I'm toying with how we'll deal with the back splash area.  We have some left over butcher block material, I was thinking of hanging plates...  I'd love some under cabinet lights.  It will take some experimenting and time to get it just right.  I want it to serve as a command center of sorts so we need an area for a calendar and keys and all that good little stuff.  

I'll be back with more progress and details. 


  1. Oh Teresa that area looks great! I know I am working on a command central space for all of the kids stuff as we get ready for the school year! Last year was a disaster, so this year I am shooting for more organization! I think you are doing a great job with dressing your shelves. This project was certainly worth it!

  2. I'm sorry they were a pain but they really look great! Definitely an upgrade and I'm sure you'll figure out a great command center solution.

  3. Hey there again... I just wanted to let you know I've given you an award on my blog so go on and check it out :)
