House Call: Chris' Green Kitchen

Philadelphia

A very good friend of mine happens to be a very talented handy man — there are so many elements in his home that one could take inspiration from. March is Kitchen and Bathroom Month, so you're getting a sneak peek into Chris' Green Home, starting with the kitchen...

1 In a small DIY kitchen, space is often hard to come by and one may need to improvise. Chris got creative when he used an old, solid wood door to hang his pots, pans, and knives. There are so many different ways to DIY with Doors these days, as well as DIY Pot Racks, the inspiration is everywhere!

2 Chris built his own kitchen sink, counters and cabinets. Instead of the traditional drying rack or a heated drying dishwasher, Chris chose to use wood clamps as cup holders to let them drip dry on the edge of his sink. Once the dishes are dry, he moves them to the simply-built wooden boxes attached to the wall that he now calls cabinets.

I can't wait to share the rest of Chris' Green Home via House Tour with you next week!
