Last week I showed you my galley kitchen
Everyone thought it should be lightened up with some paint on the cupboards.
The more I stood in there, the more I agreed and then disagreed. So I'm trying really hard to figure it out. Is there a decorating site where one can plug in your room and have it painted? You know, to see what it would look like?
I know everyone here says "it's only paint" but I have this thing about doing paint projects RIGHT the first time. Should I paint one cupboard? I'm scratching my head on this one!!!
What I didn't show you because I was lazy, was the inside space of the pantry or butler's cupboard.
We're thinking of putting in a counter here for more workspace. EC and I are both "chefs" and really enjoy being in the kitchen. We can't be in there together though. It's not pretty.
Ideas? I love and appreciate them!
Now, onto the wee breakfast area
This is the view from the kitchen, pantry on the right.
Small room. Ceramic tile continues into it. Table cloths are the window treatments.
We home school our boys. Some days they do their school work here.This table was a find in an antique's shop in Philadelphia. It was originally "milky green". My dad refinished it for us as a wedding gift! Love you, Dad!
And there's Grama's sewing chair - waiting to be changed up a bit!
My good friend's mom paints furniture. I bought this sweet little blue desk and chair (for a steal!). The fabric she chose was the same as I had on my bulletin board. So it was "providence" that I should have it!
Notice the door. YUKO. Not sure if new interior doors are going in any time soon. We have all these hollow babes throughout the house. Any ideas?
Here are two more angles. I'm not stuck to anything we have in here. Placement or otherwise. Personally I'd love to knock out the wall and open up the space into the dining area (which is our next stop!). It's an odd shape though!
Let me know what you think! The more radical the idea, the bigger the smile on my face!
You're the best!
