I just love my husband to death and he never fails to surprise me throughout the year with his hand-made gifts for me. We celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary on Monday the 4th (1972) and have done a lot of reminiscing this entire week. Forty-seven years is a long time but it just doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. This year he surprised me with a handmade piece of furniture for my kitchen.
This is my new appliance/baking center in the kitchen.
The top of the unit holds my most used small appliances.
The bottom shelf holds a couple more pieces, bread bowls, measuring cups, chopping equipment, blender and my new crock pot from my daughter.
I had an old dresser there and about a month ago I described to hubby my image of the perfect work station in front of that window.
I previously had my mixer, air fryer and food chopper on our kitchen wood stove. Moving those off the stove freed up a 28 x 40 inch area for preparing anything I want to cook.
The space enables me to put together on one surface and move straight to the appliance needed unless its baking in my range.
The work area on the stove holds my smaller measuring cups, cutting boards, etc. The warming ovens in the top of the stove keeps my spices, baking powders, etc. Spices need to be kept in a cool dark spot and this is perfect because I close the doors to those ovens when I’m not working there.
Thank you my love for all your ingenuity, patience and time in building me such a fine piece of furniture for our home. I will use with love and thoughts of you forever!!
