A Kitchen Cupboard Organizer. Things I Did While Waiting for Canada Ceiling Tiles to Deliver My Order!

Suffering from a bit of anger and too much coffee,  worked to my advantage.  Probably mostly the coffee, but waiting for my ceiling tiles is becoming quite annoying.  I just found out that good ole Steve lied about getting the tiles shipped out immediately after the long weekend, which here in Canada, was May 19th.  Instead I got an email stating that they would be shipped out May 28th.  Way to go Steve.   What the hell do they do at their warehouse all day?  Knit sweaters for cold sheep?  We are Canadian after all, but this Canadian is tired of being polite!    Anyways, if someone is looking for a good review on Canada Ceiling Tiles, you won't find it here.  They suck!....and you can read about here!
Today while cleaning the kitchen, I crammed my last cookie sheet into this cupboard.

 I forgot to take a before picture but I do have a picture of the shelf that was jammed into the back.  It was only half the depth of the cabinet as I used some scrap wood to build it.  A wire divider from the dollar store was my magic holder for cookie sheets. I shut the door on that fix a few years back.....when it would shut and called it "good enough!"
I didn't even veneer the edges.  It was crap.

  Unfortunately, every time I opened the doors to
 bake some crazy science experiment from Pinterest,
 everything would fall out and onto the floor.
Dado's were cut into a top and bottom piece, (bottom shown).  1/4" MDF was glued into the slots to create dividers for cookie sheets and other bakeware.

Exposed edges were veneered
And then I forgot I had a camera and was supposed to use it.
A trial fit.  I realized I needed one more divider on the top shelf and a lot of paint

Last divider was added and paint was applied.
I wish I could be more patient and apply paint before assembly, but when I get an idea, I just go with it.  So instead, I painted the wood and my arms with a very nice coat of white paint!

Two, handled plastic bins from the dollar store, house food processor and stick mixer parts.

shhhhhhh  a very very early B-day gift for Mr. FT.  Had to make a special place for his new kitchen gadget.
 A sous vide cooker!

 The handle to the frying pan sticks out, but with the setback of the dividers, door clearance is not a problem.
  Whew. (wipe sweat from my brow)

Look at all those shiny labels!  
Hmmmm that reminds me, I better get started on that "knitting sweaters for sheep" project I've been putting off.  Me and Canada Ceiling tiles will keep those poor sheep warm this winter!
