The Kitchen Workshop

The Kitchen Workshop

I just read a great blog about men moving from the garden shed to the kitchen for their tinkering. In my life it is not the garden shed they will leave but the garage or basement workroom. Should we allow them in the house to tinker?

My own kitchen has a large pantry off to the side, with a large sink and lots of counter space (pictured above). When we renovated my intention was to use this as additional food prep space for formal dinners and as a self service beverage center for casual entertaining. The reality is we use it most often for the children to work on school projects–they have built volcanoes, mummies, plant and animal cells, this yucky goo stuff and more! I banish them to this space for their baking!
Do I dare let my husband in? I know the blog was talking about men tinkering with cooking but do we even let them entertain the idea of a workspace in the kitchen? Not in my house! I will have power tools and peg board in the blink of an eye. My husband does not read my blog thank goodness! He won’t get the idea here!
