|The Right Half of the Kitchen|
This is the half of the kitchen where I prepare the food. Out of view to the extreme right is a nice wooden counter top with plenty of cupboards above and below. I've yet to figure out where to put everything. The table is both unusual and functional. Built by some college friends of mine (and given to me when they moved on), it's a solid wooden door set upon four legposts with built-in shelves. It's up high and makes the perfect work space. I can chop and cut right on it, knead dough, roll pastry crusts & noodles, etc. Bar stools serve as seats, though I rarely use them. If you can find an old solid door in good shape, you can probably make this table for under $20.
The doorway leads to the living room. You can also see the mantle for a non-functioning, boarded up fireplace. It holds my cookbooks very well.
