Joy In Order


This project took way too long to get going. Years of contemplation. I should have just done it a decade ago: building shelves for the kitchen pantry.

I usually said I'll do it in the Spring when it's ideal working condition in my garage/shop. But I waited too long. To save some do-it-yourself dignity I did it this month in a very cold garage, just to get it off "the list". But it's done! Looks fine and I get a warm feeling seeing all the order it has instilled in our kitchen supplies. Wilma doesn't take it to that level, but loves the shelves anyway.

Oh, I do understand. Great job fighting the cold to get this off the list! It is a wonderful sketch and the shelves look great!

I love how long it took you to do them ... we have a project (or 2 ... or 15) that have been waiting a bit of time as well. Fun post and very good drawing of the shelves .... love the inventory! nancy

I give it a few months! It seems like the more space we get for storage the more space we use. Nice drawing and even better nice job at getting around to doing the job, lol!

Your drawing is great as always.

I love the notations of the products--made me smile a lot...
whatever you said on the bent neck angle is unappreciated by me--as I tried to tip the computer to see it and that was no help....:-)

Winna - I noticed that myself. It's hard to read vertically, but from a composition standpoint that's what I needed. Art over function, I guess.
