For good measure

A creative display of treasured measuring cups and spoons adds tons of charm and personality to Manuel and Jenny Cernades’ new kitchen in Linden, Johannesburg (see the full kitchen on page 40). “Some of these measuring spoons were passed down from my grannies, and others I have been collecting for over 30 years,” Jenny says.

She took the top off an old table and used half of it to create the display board. Each item has its own nail keeping it in place and ready for use. Different coloured panels on the original wood make for interesting texture in the otherwise monochrome kitchen. The collection now has pride of place between two window frames made from recycled Oregon pine. Window frames from Orejen.
