Kitchen Appliance and Furniture Creativity

Have you considered a mini fridge for your man or woman cave? The fixer upper that my husband and I purchased only came with a stove. Though we have our RV with a fridge and stove on site, we are staying in the little house until the walls come down for remodeling. In the meantime, it would be quite handy to have access to a mini-fridge in the house. I’ve been checking the Penny Saver and other places for mini-fridge prices lately. Chili pepper red goes with my kitchen/patio right now, and I noticed a couple of red mini fridges at a site recently that were quite attractive. Have you ever seen the USB Mini Fridge to hook up to your computer? It has the capacity for one soda. How sweet and handy for the blogger or writer who doesn't want to run to the kitchen for a soda. I love it. But for my kitchen/patio I need a size larger. However, I couldn’t help but mention this little snazzy USB Mini Fridge for only $19.99.

Appliances and furniture we normally use in the kitchen can be used for other purposes. My cabin came with very limited cabinet space, so I've picked up a baker's rack with a built-in wine rack. Curious to know what other uses the wine rack could be used for, I went on a search and found these thrifty ideas:
Love these photos from

  ...and check out this site for the Bath Towels...

Of course, you can always use the wine rack for wine. The same site where I saw the cute little USB mini fridge has many wine racks, wine photos, and other wine items you may be interested in.

The other thing I desperately needed in my fixer upper kitchen was a pantry. The cabin came with an antique store counter which I use as a pantry. When we were throwing out the trash outside, I noticed a book case in the trash pile. I grabbed it and stashed it so it wouldn't get thrown in the trash pile again. I'm so glad that I did. Now I use it as an open pantry. I love looking at home and garden websites and magazines for pantry ideas. It's amazing what you can come up with even in your own home and yard. That's part of the fun of decorating a fixer upper.

I think anytime you can reuse and repurpose things during a remodel the prettier things look.

Candace said...! I am so happy you stopped by and introduced me to your blog. I can relate to this post. We have had to get really creative since we sold our home in Louisiana and moved out last October. At the temp house, my pantry was housed in a bookshelf. In our apartment in NH, we have no stove and only a tiny fridge. I've been cooking on a two burner hot plate and in a toaster oven. Our freezer...aka "sub zero" was an ice chest in an unheated storage ice necessary in the winter. It has warmed up though so I lost the use of that. We have learned alot on this adventure called life and I love it. Thank you for sharing your creative ideas. I love the use for the wine racks. I'm adding your blog to my Reader so that I can follow along with you. :)

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be at
the web the easiest thing to take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the

You managed to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the
whole thing without having side effect , other people
can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
Thank you
