Another day another room down! The kitchen is off the living room, off the dining room, and off the guest room...so everything sort of ends up in here since all roads lead through the kitchen, HA!
With a more spacious floor, it's a great place to sit stuff down and then just step around it. Of course then one thing becomes two and that becomes three, etc.
But then once it's all picked up, it looks much more open. That bench/cabinet opens up (the top lifts up) and it was full of
junk stuff and I cleaned it out and put dishtowels inside (it's a heavy lid and no gaps so it's mouse proof)
Of course, kitchen counters are second only to tabletops for collecting junk stuff. Above is before...
...and this is after. We didn't realize it was so big, LOL! Still need to work on the upper open cabinets. When we had the house cleaned up and painted inside, we had them put these up, they are just simple 'boxes' hanging on the wall...I'd like to remove them and put up shelving like on the other side. Speaking of, next up is the other side of the small kitchen...
Again, lots of stuff sitting around without a 'home. Well, it does HAVE a home, it just hasn't found its way to it yet, ha. This is a table we bought at Nadeau. Believe it or not it there is a white marble top under there somewhere...
Oh, THERE it is! And the stove is usable once again too! I redid the stuff on the shelves, straightened them up, just to make it look neater and not be so junked up but we'll have to rearrange a few more times I'm sure.
For those curious, here is a view of most of the whole kitchen. I took this standing in the entryway from the dining room looking back through the kitchen toward the living room entrance (behind that white curtain door on the left). It's small but functional. Not a lot of cabinets or drawers but we make do. That yellow cabinet is what we use for the china, silverware, mixing bowls, drinking glasses, baskets, etc. Right around the corner of the marble top table is the curtain door into the guest room and our "Julia wall". There is another special area I'm almost finished with that's a surprise for 2nd Man.
I'll show you that when it's ready. :-)
All (and I use the term "all" very loosely) we have left is the dining room and mudroom/pantry room. They are probably the worst because stuff I've been carrying out of the other rooms on its way to the barn or the mudroom shelving is stacked up there. But I think I can get it all done with one or two more all day adventures.
Hope your weekend was productive!
Happy LEAP DAY!
