What the Builder Sawed

I spent every waking minute outside today and I'm tired, tired, tired. I was trying to think of something I could share with y'all ... here's what I came up with. These are the new shelves and cabinets I had my contractor and his guys build for me. The cabinets hold my garden magazines, seeds, and all sorts of assorted garden paraphernalia that I don't want to keep outside. The shelves are for gardening books and dec obs to make it all look purty since I'm not a big fan of ugly.

A big thank you to my friend Kathy Purdy at Cold Climate Gardening, who suggested I look at Lee Valley's website for cabinet hardware. They had the perfect knobs ... the Head Gardener and I believe y'all will be unanimous in that as we are!

Fantastic! I added a big set of shelves like that last year and I am still thrilled and they aren't quite filled.

Ditto on the knobs. And isn't it great to have all your garden info in one nice attractive spot!

Love it, love it!! What room is this shelf in? Those knobs are to die for! I turned by youngest son's room into my "wildflower" room and I am trying to organize in there. Shhh--don't tell. He doesn't know that Mom took his room over! :)

Thanks, y'all! The shelves are in my kitchen/breakfast room, which is basically a long rectangle. There's a door to the garage on the wall where the shelves are, and a door to the patio on the adjacent wall. That one's right in the corner where the two walls meet. It can't be opened all the way now but there's never been any real need to do so.

I knew y'all would like the knobs!
