So, for the last month and a bit, Dave and I have been working pretty intensively to get our house unpacked and settled. This involved, as I believe I mentioned, building a shed to house our storage, since we have tenants in the basement. Last week Dave's brother and Dad and friend came to visit and finished the outside of the shed and landscaped around it and started on the boys' fort in the back yard. They had lent Dave a bunch of expensive tools, including an air compressor and a nail gun, that he didn't want to leave out in the shed-without-a-door, so they have been sitting in our kitchen on a sheet for quite a while. Since they've left, Dave has put shelves in it, and so we've been finally getting things cleared out of the way and everything sort of in the place we want it. We also had a lot of built-in shelves and closets in our last house, so we've had to buy and put together a ton of Ikea shelving (since it fit our budget and we didn't have time to thrift - we needed to get that box forest in our living room unpacked onto something).
One of our space saving solutions that we are really happy with was this pot hanger. Our ceilings are 9ft high, so and this is over our counter, so it keeps the pots completely out of the way, but very much in reach. And it adds a bit of a kitchen-y feel that the room was lacking.
this yummy fabric line would be great. I'd better decide fast, though, because this stuff is being snapped up like hot cakes.
burlap buckets would look fantastic in here.
So, that's my new kitchen. Feel free to stop in for tea anytime.
