I know, I know. I don't post for months and then twice in a week. I have honestly been meaning to update the recent kitchen photos for a while now.
Here is where I left off.
Wood countertops had a great smell, very light in color
In the last few months I have added a few finishing touches. I really like the hardware that I chose. I saw these Ikea oversized pulls/handles on a blog and loved them.
The other element which needed updating was the range. I felt that a stainless steel one would tie it together. It was a very generous birthday/christmas gift from my parents!
The other change that you will notice is that the countertops are darkening with time. Ok...not just time. I am fairly diligent about oiling them. I love the way they are changing. I would like them to be a bit darker and shinier. However, I have resisted the urge to stain and seal them.
Since I opened the cupcake company I really am going to need a more functional/industrial faucet. I do like the look of this one though.
The other thing that you will notice about this kitchen is that there are no appliances, gadgets, nick knacks....etc. I saw a phrase once on pinterest that expressed how I feel perfectly. "It's a kitchen...not a catch all." In a large space I think it is fine but when your kitchen is as tiny as mine is, it just makes it feel smaller and cluttered.
I always have fresh flowers framing the sink. I like the pop of color against the otherwise white kitchen.
Thanks for stopping by
Enjoy your weekend
