I used one of the empty cabinets in the scrapbooking room to make an island in the center of the kitchen where I can prepare food.
I used the other empty cabinets against the wall with a 3 ft deep countertop over them to hold my small appliances and cannisters and there's still plenty of room for mixing up cookie dough or whatever. It doesn't look crowded or cluttered anymore; it looks neat and pretty, I think. What do you think?
