Our dining area: picking out the lighting was one of the bigger perks of a custom build.
And that table? Overstock.com! Really!
My place for my favorite dishes, which reminds me: I need to use these more.
I’m pretty sure this wreath is St. Patrick’s decor, but it totally fit my color scheme.
I made the curtains, which was a pretty huge project. I looked for a long time for the right blue fabric for the ties, but could never find anything. I decided to use leftover fabric from my bedroom curtains, and I ended up liking it.
We eat 2 meals a day at this breakfast bar. I love being able to work in the kitchen, but still be right with my kids sitting up at the bar.
My blue island with a butcher block counter. I cut on my butcher block constantly.
My farmhouse sink. The pink-bottle is my degreaser and the blue-bottle is my stainless steel and granite cleaner. All made from Shaklee’s Basic H2 – found here. The dish soap is by Shaklee too. I used a 3M hook for my dish towel.
This corner is where all the baking magic happens.
My step-stool and little helpers chair.
I’m not a fan of a cluttered fridge-front (or interior!), so I made a magnet board. This is where I keep a calendar, menu, grocery list, and there is even a little room for extras – like pictures of my new nephew.
I’m not too perfectionist about filling clear-front cabinets. I put my prettier stuff in there, but I figure it fits the eclectic/ shabby chic look if it isn’t exactly perfect. And if I’m wrong, please let me live in denial.
And yes, having the water-spout above the stove top is awesome. The five burner stove top sure comes in handy during large meals! And I can remember vividly the day I found the tiles for that mosaic … I was on cloud 9!
My double oven. I use this all.the.time. All the time!
The tops of my cabinets. I had fun playing around with different colors, shades, shapes, and textures.
And my pantry. Love the size!
And right across from the pantry and next to my kitchen … my desk! And if you are a fan of The Piano Guys, you may recognize that musician.
My little organizer was helping me take these pictures. When done, she asked “Do you want me to organize this cabinet now?” Of course!
There you have it. My kitchen – for real. The most used room in the house! The next tour will be my garage. Excited?? Ha!
From my home to yours,
