Kitchen desk that a listener wants to use for storage.

Chelsea and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our Oct. 12 broadcast:

Dottie in Georiga says, ” I have a kitchen desk that I’d like to turn into a ‘pantry/storage’ area by adding cabinets above and below the desk and keeping the counter-top.”

We tell Dottie she could put cabinets or open shelves above the countertop and tear out what she has for space for a wall. Her kitchen desk space is perfect for base cabinets.

Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the answer!
