Photos by Carole Meyer....This very small kitchen has grown over the years. We have added custom made pieces of furniture to expand the counter space and storage space. Our newest idea was to add a long shelf below the very high cabinets. Design by Carole Meyer

The long shelf is just above the sink and below some very tall cabinets. I love this open shelving where we now store some of the colorful, hand painted dishes that are sold in the mercado here in San Miguel.

There is quite a mix of materials in this little kitchen....but that is part of what I love about it. The sink is made of stone.

The final improvement will be to replace the white stove with a new stainless steel stove as well as a new stainless steel dishwasher. I quite love this little kitchen and how it has grown over the years. The challenge of getting this space to function and have enough storage has been fun.....and the best part is that I love the way it looks. Unique and built over time.
