But note the wide open spaces next to the stove now. I did get the microwave moved over and here it is, looking much better, since, I finally realized, across the corner it echoes the corner cabinet shape, much better appearance. And it uses a formerly useless corner space, too deep to reach into easily.
And it's safer and more functional to have that open space by the stove. Observant blogistas will have noted that the open spaces have inspired me to pull out a cookbook from the newly installed bookcase, and since the weather is frigid, bit too cold for me to get out and breathe, baking cookies from Martha Stewart might be just the ticket.
