0215_gq02.jpg Q: We're at a loss regarding what to do with the large cubby in our kitchen wall. It's pretty deep and tall, so we're thinking we'll use it to store things we don't use very often, like serving dishes and small appliances. It also has a plug inside, so it's a handy spot for the microwave:

We already ditched the bifold mini doors and wood frame. The doors stuck out and made an already narrow space even narrower, and the glass on the doors was broken in several places. So now we're left with a big hole in the wall that houses a lot of stuff.

We've considered covering it with a fabric curtain or a tambor door. We could also just leave it open, maybe paint the inside a different color than the wall color. But this would require us to keep it looking uncluttered - a big challenge for me - as well as frequent dusting (we have two cats).

Any thoughts/suggestions/tips are very much appreciated!
