It’s fairly commonplace
to ask new-build + new-rehab homeowners:
“Is there anything you would do differently?”
My reply would be parts of our kitchen. Here’s one:
That sliver of space between our stove/range hood + wall is troublesome.
Here are some photos of how I dealt with the lower cabinets.
My galvanized storage bins are from World Market:
I like the bins, but it’s above that bothers me
— on either side of the range hood.
I considered my go-to wall decor — hanging plates.
I’m fond of the blue + white plates in our main bathroom, downstairs:
Disclaimer: that wreath needs to be hung higher, like here:
(Yes, I have already shared this with G.O.!)
But wait. There’s more. Check out those shelves!
They, too, are mere slivers of space, + yet.
They’ve been tricked out very tastefully!
I wonder if very narrow shelves would work in our kitchen.
I shan’t lie. I am on the fence.
All that means is that I shall continue to stew about it,
until the day arrives that I go for it or just leave it.
Meanwhile, I am going to copy something from that blogger’s kitchen.
My small collections of wood bread boards will move . . .
. . . + will relocate to this spot:
. . . at the back of the stove top, like here:
I love being inspired so early in the morning!
Have you been inspired by a blog post or a Pinterest photo?
And no, I don’t know what we did before the internet!
