Are you calling me a wino thistle? I actually have milk, gatorades, and Corona's in there. No wine. We mostly drink red wine and I only have 32 bottles in my wine rack. So there...As far as coming up with more storage space- I was inspired by Marys
story about taking out the dishwasher and installing a wine refrigerator. That's what I've convinced dh to do, only turn the space
into an appliance cupboard, (because I'm not a wino ).
I've acquired a Foodsaver, a Kitchenaid mixer and a Nutribullet all in the space of a few months. Along with all the usual kitchen doodads.
Bay, I hate dishwashers. The only reason I had one because when we first remodeled our kitchen I got talked into it because of home resale value. As if I would ever sell my home. We had flooding in the kitchen and had to replace it. I love washing dishes by hand and am quite fast doing so.I would never ever take out the dishwasher for more space. In our old house, i gave up cabinets to get a dishwasher installed!
