I was over at a neighbor’s the other day and she showed me that they put a board up over their stove. This freed up a lot of counter space and I loved the idea. So yesterday my husband put a shelf up above our stove and it’s so nice! We don’t have a utility cart for our microwave, so we put that up along with our sharp knives and the toaster. I would have never thought unless my friend showed me. It’s a great space saver!
