This is the cabinet I got for five dollars at the garage sale across the street. On the bottom shelf is my bread machine and stand mixer. The shelf above it holds my one and three quart crock pots and the tiny deep fryer (it’s Hubbs, I refuse to use it as deep frying scares me). The middle shelf holds my six quart crock pot and my heavy glass mixing bowls (they were on the top shelf of the kitchen cabinets, but I’m short and hated needing to use them so I avoided getting them down and when they were down, putting them back up). The top shelf is for my homeschooling supplies. Right now I just have paint in there. I am going to keep stuff I need my wee students to stay out of. They love craft supplies and will use them all up at once if given the chance.
To the left side is my hand held vacuum. Then, attached to the right are some organizers my mother-in-law got us. They are holding our paint brushes, pens, pencils, scissors, permanent markers and other such sundries.

As this cabinet is in the area that divides my kitchen from the laundry room, we put two Pillsbury Doughboys on top with my blue enameled bowl (yes, our kitchen is Doughboy).

This cabinet made us totally deep clean and reorganize my kitchen yesterday. It also really makes that part of the house seem to flow better. The old portable dishwasher that I broke (one really needs to remember to turn the water on when using it or risks burning out the pump…) used to sit right there and ended up being a catch-all.  The area looks much nicer now.

  1. Ok, so next time I go to take pictures, remind me to make sure my glasses are on straight (I have bifocals) or just tell me to go get my eyes checked for a new script… I have severe astigmatism….sorry they are tilted like that!
