Got Shelves?

For The Littlest Kitchen 2.0, along with the oven and finishing the vintage cabinet, I’m thinking of subway tiles for the backsplash and more little shelves above the cooktop.  The two ideas work well together in the sense that the the shelves give the tiles a stopping point, otherwise the tiles would have to go all the way up to the ceiling, a costly and complicated undertaking.  The new little shelves would fit in the recessed area above the cooktop, about 4 1/2 inches, which would mimic the open shelving on the opposite wall.  I’m finding that I could use more shelving, since the open shelves are starting to overflow with goods.  The bottom of the shelves, or the top of the tiles, would start at the same height as the bottom of the vintage cabinet.  The top of the shelves would go up to the top of the panel adjacent to the stove.  I would probably have to hire my cabinet maker for the shelves, a ridiculously small job, which may or may not be worth his while.  And although I wish for the contractor of my dreams, I may not have enough money to have the work done all at once for 2.0.

    […] Kitchen 2.0 may finally take place next year, based on the accrual of more funds, and being decisive.  Maybe I’ll even finish putting up the vintage cabinet doors.  In planning the kitchen, I thought that all my plans were fixed and would be so for life.  Now, I’m not so sure.  I’ve learned to adapt and embrace change. Options are good, sometimes better than plan A, I’m open to it.  I want to keep evolving and keep cooking. […]
