If you’ve been reading over the past week, our kitchen has been going through a bit of a transformation. Nothing drastic (I wish I could tell you that I painted my cabinets :() but I thought I was Martha and made some new curtains and hung some freshly painted artwork.
Our cabinet space is less than roomy to say the least. I needed some kitchen storage, and the Montgomery console table just wasn’t cutting it anymore. It was nice to look at, but there was no place to stash anything.
My mother-in-law and I paid a visit to Pier1. I love that place! I could have gone crazy in there. I actually spotted a light that I really liked too, but ended up with Simon!
Yesterday I got a phone call that I needed to pick up the new addition!
We unpacked him, popped in the glass doors, & I loaded him up.
Aint he cute?
I chose the Simon sideboard for a few reasons.
1. I needed more storage.
2. I like the way the espresso wood contrasts with the green wall.
3. It’s counter height.
4. The shape is modern, but not futuristic.
5. I love the vertical lines in the glass doors.
I decided to put some of my white dishes, bowls, and mugs along with some lighter wood and stainless kitchen-y items in to free up some much-needed cabinet space. I chose to put these specific colors in because they contrast with Simon’s dark tone.
I placed some white plates with some cheerful citrus fruit for a colorful kick on top.
I get happier just being in my kitchen!
Now, all I have to do is throw a few small pictures next to the new artwork and I think I’m done with that wall for a while 😉
