Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.


I’m to the point of putting shelves in. I’m having a heckuva time figuring out how high to put them. Besides doing some shopping yesterday, all I could figure out were three wall cabinets:

The corner cabinet was pretty easy. I thought the top shelf had to be at least reachable, so I figured where that would go. Then I worked down. I found some big lazy susans that almost fill the shelves. I plan to put larger things here like mixing bowls and casserole dishes.
Who is this Susan person, and why is she so lazy?

The dishes cabinet was a little harder. I finally decided to space the shelves pretty much evenly. I just had to make sure they were tall enough for glasses.
Meh. Nothing special.

I’m quite excited about the Cereal Cabinet. It’s to the left of the sink. A whole shelf for cereal! I will put various small appliances above the cereal. I don’t know what will go on the tiny top shelf.
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

Here is my most clever idea from yesterday. The IKEA slidey-outey cabinet came with drawers inside. I didn’t install them because I wanted to put a trash can in it. I got the trash can yesterday and there was space above it, so I put only one drawer in, and I put it way at the top. Voila! I have a place to put trash bags. Genius! (If I do say so myself.)
My genius is only surpassed by my good looks.

    I fully endorse the trashcabinet. Especially the drawer. It could use some stickers.

    I’m so proud! You’ll have to take another picture when everything is fully loaded. I think the post-its are inspired. Is that what you went with for handles? No too strong, but they look fabulous!
