Time for more pictures of my house as part of Lindsey from Ot and Et’s Monthly Project party!
Welcome to the kitchen! The homeowner did some updates in here before we moved in, and they’re pretty nice. I like the stainless steel appliances, and the aluminum tile backsplash.
Oh, and if you’re wondering about that green thing on the door under the sink…that’s my baby proofing. What? You don’t baby proof with fabric belts?
There are some weird things about the kitchen though. For one, the sinks are ridiculously shallow. The front of the fridge isn’t magnetic, and I don’t know why someone would update this and that around the room, but leave the less than desirable laminate flooring. Some of it is even cracked. Blech.
There wasn’t a pantry in here, so we moved an armoire the area of the kitchen that was designed for a high top or something. The armoire was left in the house by whoever lived here beforehand. The garbage can too, now that I think about it.
I had to curl up the cords of the pendant lights, and secure them with zip ties, because the lights hung too low and prevented us from opening and closing the “pantry” doors. One of those doors was broken too, so John & my father fixed it when my parents were up last month.
I’m still using my chalkboard meal plan tray! I’ll admit that I don’t use it every week, but I really should make more of an effort to use it. It’s very handy! Want to make one of your own? I have a tutorial on my other blog.
Despite the fact that the front of the fridge isn’t magnetic, the side of it is. This is a collage of photos from our honeymoon. Pre-Army John looks pretty different, huh?
If this ends up ruining the pain on the side of the armoire, I might regret this later, but for now I’m really liking the hooks I put on the side of the “pantry” that hold our reusable shopping bags. I like how they keep some of the clutter off of the floor. The giant bag of dog food is enough.
Well, that’s it! That’s the kitchen. The only room I have left is the master bedroom. Funny how I thought I was going to have all of this wrapped up in June, no?
