This is what you now see when you walk into our kitchen....
This week we removed the bar stools and counter top that when along the island. As fun as it was to see all 3 big kids sit at the counter every morning, with the stools AND a kitchen table, there was just no room to move around. I was constantly tripping over the NINE chairs in this little space, when we sat as a family at our little table we were SQUISHED, and I just NEVER sat at my own kitchen table.
We removed the counter with relative ease and were VERY PLEASED to find the wall at the end not completely torn up. We found the perfect harvest table for 50$, and the chairs were all FREE!
We are planning on wallpapering that big brown wall with fake wainscoting and painting it white. I think it will just tie everything in a little better.
The kids were a little miffed at us for taking away their bar stools so we let them each pick their own colour for and have their very own chair.
Simple...Cheap and everyone is happier. I have to admit that I LOVE sitting at my own kitchen table now, and when we have friends over for supper we now have a kids table AND and adult table!
Want to come over for supper??
