We have been living in this apartment for about a year now. (Well, Andrew has been. I moved in after the wedding.) When we first saw it, one of the things we noticed was that one of the kitchen drawers, the biggest one and the only one that will fit our silverware tray, didn't have a bottom in it. The lady from the rental company we were with said that she would make sure that it was fixed before we moved in.
One year later and it still hasn't been fixed. Our silverware has been sitting in the tray in a corner. So, we decided to take matters into our own hands and do it ourselves, with some help from my dad.
It's a usable drawer now!
And the silverware tray fits with room to spare!
This gave us the ability to give ourselves some more, desperately needed, counter space. By moving the coffee stuff we now have this:
And all the coffee stuff in is one area, along with a few of our many mugs.
It's the little things in life that make me happy. Having a drawer to put my silverware in is a good thing!
