Small Kitchen DIY Fixes: Submit Your Stories

Jacquilynne | Mar 9, 200704:17 PM     82

Do you have a small kitchen that you tweaked to make work better? Did you come up with a creative solution that involved building something or adapting something for a new purpose? Tell us the problem that existed before and what you did to fix it -- and upload a photo that shows the final version. We may include your photo and description, credited to you, in an upcoming story on kitchen fixes on CHOW.

Here's an example of a submission (including the photo below):

Inspired by small apartment kitchens we saw on a trip to Italy, my husband and I sawed the inside out of a board, leaving only a frame. Then we dismantled a store-bought wooden dish drying rack, and inserted one side of the rack inside the sawed out board. We mounted this slatted shelf above the sink and put our wet dishes in it to dry. The water drips into the sink, and it saves precious counter space.
