Extra Storage Space!!!

Hi: All... I just had time to finish adding an extra storage space... above the screen door frame. Picked up a nice mill end of oak crown molding for $3. and had some S/S screws and satin Varathane to finish it. Here's a couple o' pic's. Alf

Re: Extra Storage Space!!!

That looks nice. What is the depth?

Have you thought what you will store there?

Hi: Paul Braun...The molding piece was about 3 1/2" tall and the depth of space ranges from 2" to 3 1/2 at the side of the fridge. As for contents I was aiming at all the small stuff that ends up on the counter by the door. Keys, paper receipts, pens etc. Don't know if it would be useful for spices too!!! I think it looks a bit more finished also. Alf

Re: Extra Storage Space!!!

Another advantage, is that it holds the top of the door down, so the screen doesn't disarticulate itself : - )
