On my kitchenbench

Don't you hate those modern appliances?? I certainly do!

Lucky for me I have a friend (Hi Rochelle!!!) that comes up with great ideas. A while back she showed us a picture of a little fake cabinet her brother had made for her to hide her mixer.

And smart little me had a lightbulb moment and stole the idea for my UGLY coffee machine!!

I gave a local crafts man my measurements (the coffeemachines, not mine!!!) and he made it for me. I roughed it up a little and gave it 3 coats of paint (1 red and 2 black) and sanded it back a little here and there, and I have to say I LOVE it!!!!

I love it too! Plus got a real chuckle out of imagining the man taking your measurements!
