In The Kitchen

A while back I talked about cooling my kitchen, you can see that here, but here’s where I am so far.  I never finish.

The oven really hasn’t been used much since February, when Mr. reFresh and I went on a diet.

The kitchen is where I do most of my projects, thank goodness for granite.

It has a large eat in area. Please ignore that other Federal convex mirror, it’s headed to the lake. I must say I got a little obsessed with them after I got the first one. I bought a total of three. I know I’m sick.

I never know what to put up there, so I’m sure these are short lived.

A view from the living room.

My view from the sink. The burlaps curtains here.

The painted island, it was red.

I love taking pictures…duh

My son always wants to know if it’s real, when he sees food on the counter. It’s not…

I love my kitchen and the changes that I’ve made. Some ideas were posted here.

  3. I came over from Kristen’s to see your BEAUTIFUL kitchen! I ADORE the bench you ahve at your table. My table looks very similiar to yours, it is just crowded in the space cause my eating area is NOT as big as yours. Love all you have done. XO, Pinky

  15. I think that your kitchen is well on its way to becoming a comfortable and beautiful room. Love the color on the walls- I checked out the before and this color is so much more soothing! The look is fresh and clean, too. And I love the island color!!! Does the bench at the table match it? Am visiting from Kristin’s party.
