Hubby Made a Cubby

Title by Autumn. Anyway, when Grandma came to live with us two years ago, she brought her recipes along. Yippeeee!!!! I was thrilled to have them.

She had them in a long index box, and it had to sit on the counter to the right of the stove.

Not a big deal, but 6 inches really is a lot of space on a counter.

I recently got an idea to put them under the upper cabinets. I mentioned this to my wonderful husband, and he got right to work.

Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate, and he got set back, not being able to stain and polyurethane outside.

He did get it finished, and installed it this weekend.


My counter is freed up once again. Thanks, sweetheart!



Oh, and speaking of recipes, there's a new one over at Mama's Fixins!

OK, it's not enough to just have the recipes but to have the box she kept them in all filed the way she had them is just too special!!! I wish I had my grandmother's. What a great idea you had to store them and how great your husband could make it!!

Don't you just love being married to a handy man! If I can draw it, or show him a picture, Gordon does the same thing. Very budget friendly, too!
Love this idea a lot!
