Our kitchen has been going through a very slow change over the years, not to a certain design style or anything like that. It’s evolved to meet our needs as a family and to be sympathetic with our Old Lady as we have learnt all of her quirks and un-straight walls/floors.
The recent paint job that I gave the kitchen before Christmas, was just a quick update. The kitchen needs renewed, but for now, we don’t mind it and can live with what we have in here. As long as it looks nice and functions well with all my favourite kitchen bits and tools, I’m pretty easy.
This corner in the kitchen is my favourite place to be and I need to have shelves in this corner. Just white wood ones with brackets, in white, like these
We also need a new sink. We are looking at a ceramic one like this
or I’ll nab the one from my studio
So, I thought I would bring my little meat safe that my Dad made me. He actually built it for one of my Sydney Finders Keepers displays and I could never fit it in my trunk to bring it home. So, Mum and Dad brought it to me when they visited recently.
This is it before I put it out. That space really needs shelves…and a new/old island…and our lights have yet to go up.
One other thing that still needs doing in here is the cook top/oven splash back. I’m undecided what to do here yet. There is a few things in my head…a white bead board splash back (and get rid of those square tiles we put up 12 years ago that I’m not keen on) that would go right around, herringbone subway tiles in white or, make my own tiles with a light pattern.
The other thing i’m toying with is bringing this hutch from the studio into the kitchen again. I love it’s slim fit when it’s in here and I can see all of my most used pieces at a glance. The fire wood crate fits a treat underneath it too!
…but, for right now I’m happy looking at this cute little meat safe.
Thanks Dad! ~Ness xx
