She told me she was going to participate and I originally told I was not, because my kitchen is my least favorite room in the house. As I was cleaning to leave for the weekend (yes I clean so when I come home after a weekend away everything is nice and clean for the first 2 seconds when we arrive) I decided I was going to participate. My feeling is you only know how far you've come if you are honest about where you started!! So I am showing my kitchen!!
Welcome to my kitchen...
This is the view coming from the garage through the den..
Notice the mismatched chairs for the kids? We have a wooden princess chair for my daughter and an NCSU for my son. Why you ask? Because I was tired of recovering the seat cushions every time we had a function at the house and the kids like having their own personal chairs. No arguments of who sits where.
The cabinets were originally brown and hubby painted them white for me. Now I want to paint them with a glaze like Kelly's cabinets but I have a feeling that will never happen. I would also like new counters but that is way down on the list!!! I did make the curtains and I really love my curtains!
The view from the kitchen looking back to the den.
Fridge and pantry! My two favorite pieces are right here. The rooster from Pier One and the chalkboard I redid.
Up close of my 9x9 kitchen. It is small but it does the job!! Plus, I am not a big cook so it isn't a big deal. The item I dislike the most is the original 1988 stove. It is so old and yucky I can't stand it, but money doesn't grow on trees and my husbands theory is "if it isn't broke we are not getting a new one" grrrr!!
