Hello again, I've been slowly but surely taking you all on a little tour of my humble abode...and "humble" is definitely the right name for the next room on our tour...the kitchen. Now frankly, I'm not super excited about this little bitty room. I was much more comfortable showing you the last few rooms on our tour...
But since these rooms are all connected, I can't very well skip over it and besides, you would probably notice that the kitchen was missing now wouldn't you? ;)
So here goes...just keep in mind, there are remodeling plans in the future...when our kids get little bigger and a little "less messy" as my husband says...
My dad made me this table when I first moved into an apartment...probably almost 20 years ago now...does that mean it's vintage??? I collected the chairs, painted them up and distressed them. So I guess this was my first little thrifty decorating project.
This pew rack is handy for family devotions and some assorted trays.
Another "first project" were the cupboards...we painted the dark wood cupboards and my husband replaced the doors with these handmade beadboard doors...big improvement.
I love these little flower basket lanterns hanging from the pot rack...my husband isn't thrilled about this idea. He's says this is a better place for pots and pans...huh? Imagine that?
I got this adorable side table at an occasional sale with intentions of putting it in my daughter's room, but it wasn't quite right. So up on the counter it went...
...it has a perfect little spot for my cookbooks.
Yet another flower basket re-purposed.
A spice rack turned vitamin holder..."Happy and Healthy".
This vintage metal lunch box makes a great recipe holder...
...and keeps my favorite spices close for cooking.
You might remember my chalkboard fridge from this post...FRIDGE FUN.
This is what I call "Mommy Central"...
The "Big Chief" ice box was purchased at a flea market and my husband refinished it...sure wish I had a "before" picture...you wouldn't believe the transformation. It's great for storage.
LOVE this planter turned phone charger.
This step stool/bench makes a great shelf over the phone.
Here's where my PEPPER MILL ANGEL ended up...appropriate for the kitchen, don't you think?
I even managed to squeeze in a little coloring table for the kids.
So there you have it...my little kitchen filled to the brim with junky yet practical storage ideas.
So where should we go next? Upstairs or down...we'll see :)
Thanks again for stopping by...your sweet comments make my day!
Also linking up for the CSI Kitchen Challenge :)
Now I know this kitchen is far from "magazine worthy"...but I just can't resist joining in the fun over at Whisperwood Cottage :)
