We hosted a book review at our house on last Friday night. That's probably funny for those of you who know that I'm not a reader! While I was cleaning the house I thought it would be fun to take some pics of some of the rooms. Here's the kitchen- our work in progress. There are a lot of small things here and there to do, but I love having more projects than time, money, or energy to do. Ok... "love" is strong. Perhaps "enjoy" is a better way to put it. How boring would life be to live in a perfect house? (some days I WANT "boring")
The kitchen bench is working really well. It's easy to clean up after meals and shove the table into the corner of the room. I still need to paint those crates underneath.
This is a section of countertop that I didn't used to have. It's so great to have this! It's the perfect spot for rolling out cinnamon rolls.
The contents of these jars are always changing, but I recently got a TON of free oatmeal (PTL!) and with the raisins I bought in bulk it seemed obvious that the third jar should house the oatmeal cookies we girls made this week.
That square wood clock above the girls door holds a little surprise behind it... when we moved in that clock was there and I moved it one day and discovered a big hole in the wall just a little bit smaller than the clock. So, the clock still hangs. I want to decoupage it or something fun. .
(ok, i just deleted that pic and that's frustrating.... also, this underlining won't stop! Does anyone else get so annoyed with blogger sometimes!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
above: Here's the assembly line for the grilled chicken kabobs that we had for supper. They were YUMMY! below: the all important coffee corner
below: There's a section of wall paper above the sink that needs to be scraped off. This tea towel is from Anthropology -my favorite store! Oh, and the backsplash needs to be tiled.
They just looked so yummy and colorful (they match the kitchen!) and I was so hungry that I just kept taking pictures of them. I'm so weird!
Those lower cabinets are missing doors that are waiting to get painted and put on and the whole kitchen floor needs to be redone and I'd love to do something different with the light/ fan, but one thing at a time! Thanks for "visiting" my kitchen. I'd love to share a hot drink with any one of you for REAL. Y'all come back now, ya hear?
