I was so fed up with having four fruit bowls plus a chicken, Sodastream machine and microwave all on one tiny counter so my mother in law suggested I put my fruit on a tiered cake stand. Such a great idea as I have two of these in the cupboard that only get used a few times a year and they are far too pretty to be kept in the dark.
Wow I have so much more bench space! When my laundry is finished the microwave will move out there creating even more space on my bench. I love clear benches they make me so happy! I also found that now that our fruit is on display we're eating more of it therefore saving money and reducing waste. Win win!
