New kitchen cart

The new kitchen cart is a welcome addition to our RV.  The assembly was a bit hairy, but it's done now and ready for use.

It has wheels, so when we move I can roll it out of the way of the slide and lock the wheels.  

The top drawer holds all my spices.  It's a bit sticky and doesn't open well, but then again I don't cook all that much so it's not a problem.

The produce basket slides out and I had two plastic trays that fit perfectly to keep onion peels and such from falling through.  I didn't like being able to see the white containers, so I  created a basket liner to coordinate with the stuff below.

The next shelf also pulls out, it's actually a serving tray and this will house my bread.  I wanted to find some kind of box to put this in so it looks nicer and when we came across a JoAnne's I went in search of something about 12" x 17" but no higher than 6" high.

Well!  I found a decorative box exactly those measurements and in a brown and cream tone to go with our decor.  This was truly a lucky moment and now I have my "bread box".

The bottom shelf holds odds and ends, cat food, cat grooming tools, etc.  It's all about the cats.

The top of the cart is granite so it goes nice with our Corian countertops.  The toaster oven continues to ride up there.  I tried storing it down below but we find it didn't get used if it had to be hauled out and up.

It's the only piece of furniture I've been able to buy since everything is built in and it was so much fun to create a little nook for everything.

Long Live the Queen of the Kitchen


  1. Magnificent designing and use of every inch in your new cart. I would expect no less from a Queen of Creativity! Well done. pond lois

  2. Good organizational skills, Cheryl. And, it looks good too.

  3. I agree, it's a great looking cart, and you obviously posses some wonderful organizational skills. I need to take lessons from you. I, who used to be so organized, am such a mish mosh in my old age. It does feel good to be able to buy something new and have it fit right in with the rest of the décor. Good job my friend. I'm hoping your weather is warming up a bit. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  4. I love the way you organized that cart! I'm actually glad you decided to get one for your RV. It's a convenient way to store all your kitchen needs, and move them away and about as you please. Thanks for sharing that, Cheryl! All the best to you!
