Kitchen Cabinet DIY - Painted And Things Put Away

The chickens are having watermelon for a treat and Morgan wants her treat. I let her in and she got her doggie treat. No watermelon.

Hard to believe, but I managed to get everything we use everyday put on the shelves. There are a few things that are just taking up space like the juicer in the cabinet over the fridge. And a few teapots and pitchers that I put on the shelves in hopes that since I can get at them easily I may actually use them.

I like the way the apricot color in the cabinets brightens the area and makes the kitchen a happy place. Well, at least for me. I like the color and it unites what is essentially one big room since one wall is painted this color and a top strip of another wall over a window.

This winter when the wood stove is going this color will be especially warming and welcoming. Now, it makes me smile.

I was hoping to do some more painting in the living room today, but I called it a day after I got the kitchen put back together. I really don't like how the cupboards over the fridge are so hard to reach.

Originally, I put the cabinets up so that my hoosier fits where the fridge is located. I was going to have refrigerator drawers and a counter where the microwave and cupboard are, but that didn't happen. Well, this works. Maybe someday I'll get the counter and drawers. The plan is to do some painting tomorrow.

I guess the hens laid all their eggs yesterday.

You are such a hard-working woman and you certainly get rewarded after you are done with some great looking places. The kitchen looks really warm and friendly.
