THE CLIFTON RECORD, CLIFTON, TEXAS, JUNE 18, 1887
I D. Club Demonstrators
ting Improvements In Homes
B £J» i t lis
laving been interested in kitchen improvement a long time, I gladly
,»eered to serve as demonstrator when our home agent announced the
would be done in the*clubs this year,” said Mrs. John McKinney of
Jlosheim H. D.^Club.
“At one end of my 16x8 foot kitchen before I began improvement, I had
.... stove with a cook table beside it;1
at the other end was the cabinet and
sink with the breakfast table about
halfway between on the east wall.
The walls were unfinished, smoked,
and dirty, the floor covering wom and
had broken edges. My task was to re-
model, rearrange and make more
comfortable my work shop at just as
little expense as possible,” said Mrs.
She took the top off the kitchen
cabinet and used the lower part as
part of the built-in cabinet which was
put across the north end of the room
■With the sink which had been in the
corner moved wth the half window to
the center. This made room for a
storage closet above each end of the
cabinet. A long window on an inside
wall gave little light or ventlation, so
Mrs. McKinney removed it, boxed up
the lower part of the opening and
made a pass closet in the upper sec-
tion which opens into both dining
room and kitchen. The top part of
the old cabinet was cleaned, repaint-
ed, and fastened on the wall over
where the cook table was and serves
•as storage space for dishes and other
things needed on the breakfast table
To prepare the walls for paper-
ing, Mrs. McKinney took pasteboard
boxes in which Celotex had been
shipped. When opened these were as
long as the wall and three feet wide,
which were tacked on the boards.
Where these pieces came together she
pasted strips of gummed paper that
had come off the seams of the boxes.
