Best Thing Ever – Kitchen edition

Jun 25, 2011 by

This is the first in a new series I’m posting about the Best Thing Ever that you’ve done.  You know those things you do and then every time you look at them or use them you think to yourself,

“Why didn’t I do this years ago?”

Those are the inspiration for the Best Thing Ever series and I want to hear about yours.

This is the kitchen edition

What is the best thing you’ve ever done in your kitchen?  I love my kitchen and have done a full remodel on it, but the best thing I ever did was the pull out drawers.  These things are so tremendously useful I can’t believe I waited so long to do them.


If you have cupboards in your kitchen with all sorts of random items stuffed into the back of them that you haven’t seen or used in years, you should look into getting some of these slide out shelves.  They are worth it and you will be so happy you did from that day forward.


I built mine with my neighbor Don.  He is much better at woodworking than I am, and he has all the tools 😉  And yes I did run the LA Marathon.


Here we are cutting the wood to make them.  They were very easy to make.


Here are some of the finished drawers setting up for the glue to dry. I made 8 of them and installed 7 in the kitchen and one in the bathroom vanity.  That is how much I love these things!

So that is my Best Thing Ever for my kitchen.

What is the Best Thing Ever that you did in your kitchen?  Share your best ideas with the world and help make everyone’s lives a little better.


Send me your feedback and I’ll put it all together for everyone to learn and get inspired from.

Cleaning out my island

Dec 29, 2010 by

Time to clean out my island.

No, thats not my island.


Here is my island.  isn’t it pretty?

A few times lately I’ve been cooking and looking for some tool or utensil and I know have 7 of them, but can’t find a single one.  My drawers are overflowing with kitchen stuff and I don’t know why I might ever need 12 scrapers, or 8 wooden spoons all at once.

So I set out to clean out my kitchen island drawers and get rid of some items that I have way too many of and never use


Here is the mess


This is the worst drawer.  An abyss of utensils and implements of destruction


This one is also bad, but slightly better with the silverware being somewhat organized, even if my knives don’t fit in the tray


And here it all is.  Everything that was in my drawers taken out.
