My parents were here over Easter and my dad loves to have projects to work on with the family when he's here. Holy Thursday was particularly busy as John took a half day off from work and we had multiple projects going.
I love this kitchen bookshelf they built. It even makes the folding chairs underneath look good.
This used to be a doorway to a room that had two entrances. Not particularly helpful for us! My husband closed it off early last year and we finally get to make use of the space on the kitchen side.
The shelving has enough room for all of our cookbooks, our big recipe box (a 5x7 index card box that easily holds recipes printed from the Internet or torn out of magazines and folded in half), plus our liturgical year books and books on gardening and home improvement/repair.
By the way, the picture is taken from a funny angle, it's not *really* crooked! :)
