It's hard to see, and this is the best shot my poor li'l camera could manage, but at the left end of the kitchen bar, there is a shelf (covered with stuff already, of course). The new shelf allowed us to move all the spices and such from on top of the microwave and thereby move the coffeemaker from the bar to the microwave. Which allows a lot more open space on the bar. Which, I'm told, looks better. :)
Another project, a bit more complicated (c'mon, a shelf is just a chunk of board after all), was to build a little desk for the girls' room, so we could put the computer that had been living on one end of the dining table -- with its massive CRT monitor -- in their room.
And, finally, a shot of the (mostly) finished desk, set up in the girls' room, where it is being enjoyed immensely. Well, not at the moment, because it's the weekend, which means the girls aren't here. The girls will be painting the desk (the panel/top lifts right out of the framework, so they won't paint it)... I believe the latest plan is "black with white musical notes".
We hope to do some upgrades soon and be able to get rid of the CRT, which will make the desk even more usable.
