That is the bathroom on the left the other door is the laundry room/back porch/entry
One of my good blogging friends mentioned that
she would like to see our kitchen.
Well you asked for it.
Looking in from the dining room
Here it is in the 'raw'. We haven't done anything cosmetic to the kitchen
other than add a few temporary shelves to hold our dishes and a small
pantry area in an unusable space. Oh ..we did add the brushed nickle
hardware to the cupboards!
These are about as cheap a cupboard as you can buy but they were already in here
and they work just fine so I'm thinking of adding a small crown molding and 'antiquing' them.
The dishwasher and microwave were black and really cheap so I went
on Craigslist (right after we moved to the farm) and found a 3 year old Whirlpool dishwasher, microwave
and Kohler cast iron sink (all like NEW!) for $325.
For that price I wasn't going to hold out for stainless!
Looking towards the office/craft room
You can just see the corner of the roll top desk in the office.
The yellow walls in there are NOT that bright..I promise!
These are the shelves that we added for more storage. This cottage was
sadly lacking storage for dishes or even food!
One day I hope to have a cupboard built in to look like an old Amish cupboard
with a skirt in this corner as the bottom cabinet does NOT go all the
way into the corner so there is a lot of wasted space in there.
The bathroom kitchen and laundry/back porch all need to be renovated and not just for cosmetic reasons. Hubby wants to move the hot water tank out of the porch and move it to the partial basement which will suit me just fine!
For now...these rooms are just fine the way they are.
This table cloth is a 'little' gaudy but I need to put another protective coat on this 100+ year old
Well there you have it. We've come full circle.
We've been told the original wood floors are under these sticky tiles and plywood
so we've been thinking that when we renovate we'll tear it all up and if the floor boards are in good shape
I may paint them in a soft checkerboard patern and seal it good.
It's only a thought for now and I suppose it depends on how energetic
I am when the time comes.
First though...is a screened porch and English Garden!
Do you have any future plans or dreams for your home?
