Welcome to Day 14.

What would make it WORK?
Do you need more vertical storage? Horizontal? Do you have large items that really should sit on a sturdy wall shelf or rack? Or, lots of little things that could use a little basket of their own?

Soon I will blog our kitchen re-do...
But, for now, here's a sneak peak.

Our old baker's rack. Sigh.
Everyone's dream, right?

It was a hand-me-down (much appreciated at the time) that was really worse for wear. Heavy, ugly, worn. I asked my husband to take the doors off the bottom sections just to make it a bit more efficient. But, let's face it. It was a microwave holder and not much else.

Can you hear that? The choir of angels?
Remember Day 2 - the Grab Those Gift Cards Day? Well, I found a 3 half used gift cards for a major home improvement store. Score! This set-up ended up costing a total of $50 out of pocket. (Love that.)

I ended up going from virtually NO space to 36 feet of space. I can now store all sorts of things at the tips of my fingers. And, I designed each shelf's height according to its purpose. Yes, I did. In paint. My husband is still laughing about that.

So, what could you do with the things that aren't working in your kitchen?
Take 31 minutes today to ponder some options.
And, share your ideas in the comments below.
We'd love to hear!
