Pesky Problem Solved By The Internet!

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.

How awesome!

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 . . .

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!
