It’s nice to have an organized kitchen. It helps keep things clean and tidy. You won’t have to go around running every morning looking for things that you need. When things are in place, it’s easy to find them. Fortunately, my husband shares the same thought so he makes it a point to build things for storage.

A few weeks ago, my mother-in-law came over to visit. She stayed with us for a couple of days and she happily took over the kitchen during breakfast. She pointed out that we didn’t have a bread box. It was something we thought we didn’t need but as always, she was right.

My husband sprung to action the following weekend and built a bread box from scratch. He had pieces of lumber left over from a previous project so he had very minimal cost. If you’re an avid DIY fan, you’ll love this project. The finished product is a perfect example of form and function. You should definitely try it out for yourself.
