Sigh....my kitchen. There are many things I would change about my kitchen if I could. I have this dream of a big, bright, warm & cosy kitchen for us all to hang out in. That is not to say that we haven't had a lot of lovely moments in our current kitchen. We've made many a meal in there, Thanksgiving meals, Christmas meals. My girls sit in there and chat with me, I make tea in there every 5 seconds. :) But, I feel like it is the one room in my house that is only partially me, though I have tried to work with what I've got. It is a good little kitchen, don't get me wrong. ( photo by Marichelle)
See? Still filled with love, but......if I had my druthers (and *ahem* a couple of thous lying around!) I would do this:
~ open up our back staircase, like this, remove some cabinets and put in a sweet eat in spot, like this one. source: here
~ put a window in above our sink ( or move our sink) so there was a view of the backyard. Source: here
~ and our mudroom would be big enough to store everyone's things and make getting in and out of the house a bit easier. Source: here
A girl can dream, right?
What about you, my friends? If you had your druthers, what would you do differently in your home?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend & I will see you back here on monday.
Until then, be kind to yourself.
