For a while Joe and I have discussed wanting a more open kitchen. As you can tell there are cabinets on the left that divide the room.
A view from the other side, you can see Cinnamon's tail on the left. The offending cabinets on the right this time.
So I came home from work one day and took down those cabinets that were dividing the kitchen in half. Joe helped in the end to hold it as I sawed part of it down. Otherwise I might have been squashed by a cabinet!
Look at the open counter space! I managed to cut into the nice wood that was left behind so I needed to do something to cover it up and make it look like I did it on purpose.
So I came up with the idea for a magnetic spice rack. I got a sheet of metal that I tested with a magnet, to make sure it was magnetic. And then cut it to the right size, drilled holes and screwed it into the cabinet, covering my saw mistakes. I also reattached all the moulding.
Then we added the magnetic spice containers!
It's really beautiful in person, looks like some type of art piece!
