t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Final Kitchen Bar

Finally our drawers were installed in our new kitchen bar. I am so pleased with how they turned out. Plenty of legroom. Discreet. In hindsight, I would have extended my bar an extra 2-3 inches so that my drawers could have been just a bit deeper. I am an inch short of placing my books and papers vertically. Oh well. They still give me more storage.

We opted to put no hardware. When the drawers are closed, they simply look like support beam. I actually like the look of the bar better with them, than without.

Much thanks goes out to our contractor Deskin and Kings Cabinets for a job well done. Let me know if you need their numbers.

I keep visualizing my children scooted up to the counter laughing and coloring... The future is enticing.
