On her post of Friday, March 9th, a new favorite blogger of mine,
wisps of words, took us on a tour of her kitchen. She asked if we readers would do the same by taking pictures of our kitchens to post on our blogs.
So here goes. I grabbed my camera and started shooting with the sun streaming in through the south facing windows which proved to be not the best lighting for my pictures . . . as you will readily see.
Here I'm standing in the doorway of what we call our entry room. Before we started adding on to our little hacienda here, it was the door that went directly outside. The wood stove on the left is situated between the kitchen, a small hallway and our bedroom.
Without moving but turning to the right, you see down the kitchen in that direction.
Looking directly across the room from the same spot, you see our kitchen table and the south facing windows.
Walking ahead and getting closer to the table, I start to turn right past the back side of the work island in the middle of the kitchen. You can see just a corner of it on the right.
Now you see the refrigerator and more of the back side of the island. To the left of the refridge is the door going into our living room. That door is most often open but has proven to be handy to shut out noise from either room.
As we keep veering right, you see the stove past the refrigerator and then the sink.
Directly across from the island is the counter area past the sink. The windows you see on the right look out on our unheated, enclosed porch. When we remodeled, I wanted to take out the windows and build in a floor-to-ceiling storage unit. I was out-voted and the windows stayed. I still don't like looking out onto the porch though.
Moving down the "work" side of the center island.
Now we're almost back where we started. The doorway past the two windows is where I was standing to begin. The door at the far end of the little hallway leads into our bedroom.
When you look at wisps of words' lovely kitchen, you'll see it looks "magazine ready" which mine does not. I didn't take the time to tidy up before taking the pictures. As they say, "What you see is what you get!"
It's a comfortable size which I appreciate since the space, before we started our remodeling and adding on, used to be both kitchen AND living room. My kitchen has turned out to be very convenient for me, and I love it.
Now how about a tour of YOUR kitchen?
a few good things
