A Better Use of Space

I had a cabinet sitting in front of this wall for 20 years, we called it the Spice Cabinet, because, you guessed it, it was filled with spices. I would constantly bump into it with my upper arm and end up with a bruise. We also have such a large collection of platters that they were all stacked on top of each other on my hutch top. One day I realized the two issues could be both resolved by taking on a small project in the kitchen. We added a plate rack built into the wall. My husband and I planned it out then he did all the muscle work and I primed, painted, and added the finishing touches. I cant believe how removing the small cabinet really opened up the space. This is the entrance to out family room, so it is a much nicer transition now. And the storage is amazing.

Excuse a few of these Iphone shots. The hubs is never willing to wait and/or get out of the way, so a girl can get a shot. so this will have to do. I am lucky I got these while he went to the porch to cut something.
