So this weekend it got a little trickier for guests to help us with our dishes or find spices. And sometimes us too. It takes us a little longer, sometimes, to locate things.
Because we have DOORS on ALL the cabinets in the kitchen!
And now we have to remember where we put things instead of just taking a quick glance around the kitchen to see! Gotta open a few doors now and then.
But I think it’s totally worth the trade off.
It’s incredible to me how much different the kitchen looks as it’s coming together. Nearly at the “finished” stage now! A little trim, some paint touchups, some curtains, and the backsplash over the stove, and we’ll be done! (Of course, I have started thinking of all kinds of new ideas – like glass doors on the cabinets to the right of the sink – but that’s for much later.) We keep just standing in the kitchen and staring at the space.
Amazing how, in just a few short months, it went from this:
I keep scrolling back and forth between the photos. I’m stunned by the difference. Amazing how much new life a little love, care and updating (and a lot of sweat and a bit of frustration) can breathe into a place!
