The Kitchen Comes Together

December 10, 2008 at 6:14 pm (Our New House) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

It only took us a few days to get all the boxes put away and to get the rooms semi organized.  We are cleaned and now trying to decorate.  The kitchen is a great place to start because its a room we need to use everyday.  We have a side door that enters into the kitchen from an alley.  The landlord hopes to add a small deck out of this door.  The one end of the kitchen goes to a hall towards the bathroom, master bedroom, and the room we plan to use as an office/den.  There are also two doorways to the dining room.  Our favorite part of the kitchen is the little open window between the kitchen and the dining room.  So many possibilities.  Although I hope to do more detailed posts on specific projects in the house, I thought I should start with a sort of general tour.  So, here is the kitchen as of now!
The little window to the dining room. Enless possibilities. The clock happens to have faces on both sides!

View heading out kitchen door. The artsy rolling pin was an auction find. The curatins have to go, but that will be an upcoming project.

Some of the DIY the landlord tried above the microwave. He had it hidden by a mass of leaves wound in lattice. It was so dusty and ugly. So far I spruced it up with a vintage lunc box of recipies. I love the little vintage tea pot Tony found for me.

The other corner of the kitchen. Same old ugly curtain. I was also thinking about painting the cabinets. We are renters, so this might be a project for after we have been here a while. But, they are old, shabby cupboards, so maybe, just maybe...
