Recycle and Storage Center
We have this little nook that we put a table in and always said 'what a great breakfast nook'. The truth was in three years we've only used it less than a handful of times. What I needed was a place to put recyclables and a place to store all our large kitchen appliances. We use our appliances pretty frequently, and constantly pulling them out of the cubbard is too much. The recycling is stacking up here and there, it needed a place.
We purchased this wonderful buffet style log cabinet piece at Bi-Mart. Turns out the lower space was the perfect size to set two garbage bins in. Lined with a paper bag makes each of them super simple to empty when they are full. One is cans and bottle for deposit and the other is co-mingle recycle.
Drape panels also Bi-Mart score.
