New Shelf For The Kitchen

Here is our latest addition to the kitchen. Jovita has been wanting a shelf next to the stove with our various cookbooks. It took me six hours to build from start to finish.

I felt it was appropriate to have a 1920's fire extinguisher behind the stove. It has been completely refurbished and polished to a mirror shine. It is made from brass and copper. I thought it was very nostalgic.

Here is a closeup of the antique fire extinguisher. It is not charged, however it is more for looks. It is one of the few antiques that is not ready to use.

  5. Thanks everyone for your nice comments. We found this fire extinguisher on ebay as I do most our antiques. Without ebay, we would only have 1/10th of the pieces we have. Thankfully, I married someone who shares the same taste. Jovita loves antiques and some of them she found on her own.

  6. Love the fancy fire extinguisher.

    I wish someone would build me a cookbook shelf--none of the free-floating shelves for sale out there impress me and I don't want to shell out money for a cheap Tar.get bookshelf when I know that I could find a secondhand or antique piece for the same price. You did a really good job.
