Maybe in Need of a Reno!
Well above are some pictures of my little kitchen. We bought the house 9 years ago with the intent of doing a reno, but circumstances changed and I have not been working, so I have fixed things as best I can. The house was built in 1912 and I believe it is being held together by hot glue, duct tape and silicon, but then again it is still standing even with all the storms we have had here, so I think we will be just fine. My favorite part is the window seat in the kitchen and the fact that it is quite light in the morning, although you can not tell with my shots from my camera. It is where I like to sit and draw and watch the birds in the am. For the first 2 years my stove only had one burner working and it is amazing how helpful time management is when you are cooking Christmas dinner. It was only for eight so it worked out okay. Now I have a 24 inch stove, big enough for two people, I can get a roaster in, but not a cookie sheet. That is okay I am not a baker by any means. So the color of my cupboards have been painted about six times, then I put up the bamboo looking wallpaper. The reason to go with the plate that my Great Aunt left me...we have to keep it away from that sink which I have to admit is a pain in the
--- because everything breaks in it. Thus the reason for purchasing corelle dishes. Anyway no matter how big or small, old or new, it seems that the heart of the home is in the kitchen. Best of all is that we are warm in the winter, with a roof over our heads and a rug on the floor beneath our feet, and I have 4 working burners. Life is great.
