Entering from the foyer (doorway on left goes to Max's room and the back door).
Looking in from the dining room. We painted, reconfigured, and added hardware to the cabinets. I don't know where the 'before' photos are hiding but think 80s fake oak.
This is what's on the side of our fridge. After our grocery shopping trips, we try to come up with a rough meal plan for the week. We're commuters so most nights it is just easier to look here and see what's planned instead of answering "what's for dinner?" when we're spent from the work day. I bought the Chow Planning notepad at Target. We use the All Out Of notepad from Knock Knock and keep that here too but it was in my bag when the photo was taken.
The cast iron sink and metal base cabinet came with the house and add a lot of character to the room.
Standing at the kitchen sink looking towards dining room. The cubby shelves between the rooms are deep enough to store our reusable shopping bags, my lunch box, some dog supplies, and more. A red jar of dog treats is on the left and a glass jar of people treats in on the right.
Max's bowls are under the island on a mini bench. Bru's big bowls are kept close to the sink because she gets lots and lots of water and I'm clumsy.
Same spot one year ago. She's grown into those ears now!
Max's bowl bench isn't a necessity but it does help keep his bowls from getting unintentionally knocked around-see photo above. :) I got the idea from a friend that put his bowls on a similar bench when we stayed over at her house. I found this one during our vacation in Cape Cod last month for six bucks.
This blue bi- fold door goes to the pantry. It's waiting to be reorganized so you'll see inside another day. :)
Looking back from the pantry door. Bru moved and made sure she was in this photo too.
We installed the countertop in 2007 after we reconfigured and built out the base cabinets.
We keep the Keurig (love it!), k-cups, toaster, paper towels, and various utensils out for daily use. The cabinet above the Keurig contains some breakfast foods, travel mugs, and sugar. Spices, cooking oils, etc are in the cabinet above the utensils for easy access while we're using the stove.
The K-cups are stored in an old spice rack.
living room, master bedroom, dining room, and kitchen. Next week's topic at Kelly's Korner is Offices and we'll be joining in the fun again. UPDATE: Office.
Thanks for stopping by and come again soon! :)
