The Kitchen

7 June 2006

Warning: I’m not too happy with the pictures. But I really want to get this up, so here we go.

Before, the walls were beige, and the cabinets were large, but they were dark and had large gouge marks in the soft wood. We had a portable dishwasher. The Consort and his dad built a counter for us to slide the dishwasher under when it wasn’t in use.

(And the kitchen was beige. Blech!)

We chose maple cabinetry because it is light and airy. And balanced that with dark green counters. We have a built-in dishwasher now, too!

We had so many colorful seed packets from the garden (Seeds of Change packets), that I said one day, “We should use these in a frame!” The Consort took me up on it, and he put it all together.

“Wait,” you’re thinking, “don’t the colors look different in that last picture. Yes, you’re right: three walls are a sunny yellow, the fourth is orange. Someone who came through the tour called it a “margarita kitchen” — I guess he’s right, although the runner on the counter is one we bought in Guatemala last year (not a traditional maragrita country, really).

You all should plan to come visit, so you can see what the colors look like in real life.
