This is what my kitchen looked like this morning:
This is what it looks like now:
When I visited the cabinet showroom, our plan was to replace the existing cabinetry with a traditional pantry. But when I accidentally discovered a "chef’s pantry", I HAD to have one! And by "HAD to", I mean HAD.TO.!!!
Poor cabinet designer girl, I kinda felt sorry for her having a customer like me. When I saw it, it was one of those times I spoke before I thought (NEVER a good thing when I’m transfixed by kitchen wares)…the words were spilling over my lips like a soda that had been shaken, then dropped, then run through the spin cycle of a dryer–
Me, over the top with enthusiasm: "I LOVE THAT! I want, no I NEED one of those! It’s as good as SEX…no, BETTER, because it never stops! It’s like a gift that keeps and giving…!"
Cara the cabinet designer: Hesitates then blinks. Blinks again. "Y e a h."
Of course, then and only then did I hear myself, and with no way to retract what was already bloviated, I simply said, "Sorry…I like kitchen stuff…and I forget everybody doesn’t know me well enough to know how to take me…" If I were canine, my head would’ve been dropped and my tail would’ve been threaded through my legs.
Look at the inside? Can you blame me??
The interior shelves are hinged with a whole ‘nother set of shelves behind them…
Guess that means I’ve got a job to do :).
