My kitchen has tall shelves on one side, next to the stove. Unfortunately, I had to be something of a contortionist to reach the shelves UNDER the countertop. Then one day, I realized that I could do something different!
A friend of mine did the actual carpentering for me - his tools. At first I thought I would add doors, but I prefer them as they are now. The mangy towels hanging on the cabinet are my "floor towels" - a necessity in the winter in a very wet climate! Rosebud and I bring in puddles of water several times a day during the wet season, so I've taken to swabbing the deck after every outing.
