To do list, post 3 - the kitchen


*Paint kitchen cupboards . Sadly we can’t justify getting a new kitchen, but I would like to get the cupboards painted. I hate this dated pine look, and instead would like a shabby chic distressed white finished. I’d also like a new work surface. This kitchen has been here since the our home was built, about 10 years ago.

Here's the far corner of the kitchen, as you're looking from the door.

And the other side - as you come in the door on the right hand side, next to the fridge freezer.

Our lovely tea and coffee caddies, and cake stand / fruit bowl (minus either at the moment!)

The view out of the kitchen window to our little garden.

*Paint the walls pink. The boy thinks this is plain silly – but I saw a picture of Sophie Conran’s bright pink kitchen in a magazine once and fell in love. Our kitchen might be too small to pull off such a strong colour, but I’d like to give it a go. Although it would mean changing our pictures, which are there to bring out the blue of the current kitchen.

Here's Sophie Conran's kitchen (in a photo from Red magazine) - isn't it gorgeous!

And another pic I found on the Living Etc site that I loved!

  1. Love the pink kitchen! (But I can understand why the boys aren't so enthused :-)... not such a boy color!)
