Paying Lip Service

When thinking about the kitchen as a whole, the sink has some ‘special’ features – the sink, taps, faucet.  The stove/oven has as well – a grill in the oven, routed stove elements, the door and knobs, but when I thought about the fridge, it seemed a bit plain, and more cupboard-like than fridge.

So I decided that it needed some fridge-like elements to bring it more to life, and I decided the door provided some low-hanging fruit.

Fridge Door Components

I went with a bottle shelf, and storage for eggs, which was just the sort of extra detail I was looking for.  Just in the door, you can see the Dominos that are there as shelf support for the removable internal fridge shelves.

So that bought the build to an end – no idea how much time was involved.  A lot!  It obviously took more time building two complete kitchens, but the second one was significantly faster – may have added 30% more time to the overall build, perhaps 50%, but not more.

So the build was finally finished, and already the first kitchen has been collected!  1st December – whew – wouldn’t want to leave the completion any later than that.  Looking forward to seeing what the child’s parents come up with for the paint job (they wanted to do that part, and the reason it was made from MDF rather than a more aesthetically pleasing material.)  Just need to deliver the second, and the shed will once again be mine, at least after it has a massive cleanup!
