Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Our vintage Outdoor Kitchen

An Outdoor Kitchen like no other

 If you can't tell, I usually have 20 irons in the fire. So many projects going at once! So bear with me as I take you from place to place.
Today, we are out back again.
We have a raised deck area where we hope to build a pergola or solid roof structure one day. My husband has, (at my suggestion, ahem) decided to use it as his outdoor kitchen, and why wouldn't I agree? He is an awesome cook! We have collected a few interesting things over the past few years to add to it, making it no ordinary outdoor kitchen. There is no granite in ours and until our grill "poops out"nothing is built in.
So we found this adorable vintage steam table with wonderful crocks, it has a copper tub below to put ice or to fill with hot water to keep food warm. We haven't hooked up the gas burner for it yet. But its such a cool piece that I wanted to share with you what we added to it recently.

We added some corrugated galvanized sheeting to the back and hung a Texas Lone Star that my sister gave us on the back. We had to move it to the side when we put our fireplace back there and it makes it more esthetic looking. Here is the updated photo.

Can't wait to sit out here when the weather turns cool and enjoy a nice fire.
