Kitchen Projects this summer!

So here it is one of the many things i have been up to this summer!

So for Kevin's bday we headed to ikea! I bet your wondering how i get 2 grown men to agree to heading to ikea and spending HOURS there eh? Theres a wonderful restuarant right by the ikea we go to called BD's Mongolian Grill! Thats how i get a few trips to my fav home ware store a year! I do literally spend HOURS there and they r with me as well as Loche :) walking around i cant say they enjoy it as much as i do BUT they need to walk off all the food theyd eatten b4 we arrive there :P
So i have a spice rack that was exactly what i wanted and my plan was to buy another one! and heres the BUT....they decided to change it...PHOOEY! So i was all sorts of mad! While wondering around i came across this shelf like thingy and ideas started zooming around my head! It as a bargin only $25 and the ideas were ran threw the guys, they gave the ok (not that it would have mattered if theyd said no anyway but u know u gotta let em think they have a say in things *chuckle*)

So onto what should have taken like an hour took a WEEK yea u read that right i said a frigging W E E K! So the rack wouldnt have worked with the hole cut out in the wall from the previous owners so it had to me drywalled up and primed and painted..So once that started we realised the IDIOTS that lived here b4 us had cut threw 2 support beams to open up the wall so they could shove their microwave into the that had to be fixed oh and we also found a live wire back under the board they had the microwave sitting on...SPECIAL! So needles to say my kitchen was a MESS the entire back pantry was in my kitchen i dont kow how such a small project turned into such a mess but yes after a week i got what i had pictured in my mind!

Just a couple of goodies i got!

Heres the shelf/rack, you can see the hole in the wall that caused the problem!

This is how my wall looked prior to the new shelf being put up :) Not to bad!

I used the hole in the wall to hold jars of my dried goods!

And here is the finishing results!

I needed more spice jars for the sheer fact that i dry alot of my herbs in the garden, last i counted i am at 40 little spice jars!

I love the new rack its perfect for all my needs!

This is what i use to keep my spuds and onions in but with the new rack it had to go!

So the baskets stil on the floor!
