Show Us Your Life: Kitchens

I’m really glad I’ve had this each week to ensure that I get a blog post up!  I’ve always known this about myself, but it’s abundantly clear on this blog that I need deadlines to get something done! 

So this week’s room on Kelly’s Korner is kitchens.  I really like our kitchen (although if I had my way, I’d paint our cabinets white – I love white kitchens).  I also have really struggled with what to do above our cabinets.  We have really high ceilings in the kitchen, so the space from the top of the cabinets to the ceiling is bigger than most, making it a decorating dilemma.   I’d love to add crown molding (I think it would help with the height issue some) and paint the walls up there eventually… but that’s quite a ways down the to-do list. 

This is what you see when you’re standing in the dining room.  The family room and breakfast nook are to the right.  I didn’t take these pictures recently, and I couldn’t figure out what looked off about this at first.  Then I realized that I have since added a wrought iron scrolly thing (that’s the technical term for it) above the pantry door.  It helps to make that space not look so bare.

IMG_2315  These last two are the view from the breakfast nook (which is open to the family room).  I love our granite – it hides messes so well though that I have to remind myself to wipe it down regularly.  I actually have hardware for the cabinets too, but haven’t found the time to install it yet!

Thanks for looking!  :)  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I love your island with the round section. That's so unique! I have stained cabinets & I've decided to paint them. I haven't quite got the nerve up to start but I want to!
