So earlier this week I promised the return of the tour of our "new" house. On Wednesday night, when I went to bed at 8pm, Dave stayed up late and washed, dried, and put away all the dishes. So yesterday morning when I walked into the kitchen it looked AMAZING!!! No dishes anywhere. So I had to take pictures to show you all.
This is looking into our kitchen from the office.
This is all the counter space we have. It is usually filled with dirty or drying dishes. Or both. This is also all the cupboard space we have. The other thing about our counter is that it is really short. However, thankfully, I'm so used to it by now I don't even notice it.
This is my and Dave's favourite corner of the kitchen for different reasons. Dave loves our pot holder, which the previous owners left for us. Dave wanted me to add, "It is a vast improvement over constantly fighting with various pots and lids in the back corner of a cupboard. Also it's a fantastic use of vertical space." And while I love hanging out laundry, Dave loves hanging Ziploc bags to dry from the pot holder! To each their own, I guess :) I love that long narrow cupboard in the wall because...
...it holds some of my mugs and a lot of my tea! Words cannot describe how much I LOVE and ADORE my tea cupboard!!! So come on over and I will make you a cup of tea.
And you might remember that this was one of the rooms we painted before we moved in. I am happy to say that eight months later I am still loving this colour! Choosing paint colours always feels like a bit of a gamble so I'm glad I can say that!
