My Kitchen


(May 2010)

Because NIB's challenge in March is to show our kitchen, I took some new pics today...
(hence my cleaning frenzy the last days ;)


These cute boxes are from this shop: AnnaJohanna.


There are no major changes scince I painted the kitchen last April.
Babyboy got a amall table and chair - and he loves his little space...


And after our old fridge broke down we got a new (to us) side by side...





One of the best decissions when painting my cabinets was to remove some of the doors.



To add an old desk as kitchen island has worked very well aswell.
And the sawhorse is a favourite spot for the kids to eat some snacks.








And this is how the kitchen looked before:

one of the things I like most about your kitchen is the 'eat in' aspect.

I don't have a dining room in my home... my table is smack in the middle of my kitchen...I'm always looking for inspiration in that area...Your kitchen is FULL OF INSPIRATION.
BEAUTY.
