My boyfriend and I have been in this house since mid July. We are mostly unpacked, minus a ton of books and art supplies that we’re not sure where to put yet. We need more shelves. But our kitchen is coming right along. Every now and then I find something new to hang up, or place on the fridge. We still have plenty of room in the cabinets, and I look forward to filling them with kitchen gadgets and tasty pantry items.
The top drawer holds our silverware, the second one keeps all of our hand held kitchen gadgets and measuring cups organized, the third drawer is full of parchment paper and foil type things, and the fourth has a bunch of baking things and cookie cutters.
I like this stove, with its digital clock and it’s magical burner in the front right corner, which can be either a 4, 6, or 8, inch burner if needed. Also, do you see that part of the counter on the left of the stove? It’s smooth so that we have a surface for rolling out dough (which is difficult to do on a tiled counter)!
My favorite feature in this room is the gorgeous counter top. Our landlords are potters, and they made all of the tiles for the counter, as well as that mosaic on the kitchen wall.
I cut this bloom off of my hydrangea plant in the back yard. I’m hoping it’ll dry and I can keep it around for a while. Austin made that vase when we lived back in IL, in a pottery class at our community college.
Austin brought this steel table with him when he moved to Oregon, and it has been a life saver in our old kitchens that had no counter space. It’s still pretty useful in this place. We keep our flours on it, as well as our bread maker.
We keep our toaster on the counter, because it’s used every day at breakfast time by Austin. If it was up to me, we’d have far more dishes than we do. Austin’s mom bought me those pretty colored bowls. The top shelf holds all of our water bottles.
Thanks for checking out my kitchen! It's my very favorite one of all the places I've lived in since moving out of my parent's home in 2009.
