Have you ever had something in your kitchen that looked pretty, but didn't "serve" you well? That is what happened in my kitchen. I decided a change was needed. You see, I have a laundry room off my kitchen. It is not very big though. In order to get the best use out of it, I need to be able to open the door wide. So, the little display of pillows on an ottoman that I had behind the door was no longer serving me well when I needed to access the laundry room. And, I need to access it A LOT!
So, I removed what was pretty and left the floor space empty to allow the door to open wide. I hung my over sized breadboards on the wall instead. That seemed to allow both form and function of the area.
I like how it opens up the kitchen by doing this too. It was a blessing in disguise that I made this change.
Another change I made was to move my large mixer out from under the cabinets to an open area.
I like how it looks here AND it is easier to use!
Now on to some just plain ole fun stuff. I ordered this rustic twine from Luckett's online shop. I had been wanting some of this twine with the old style scissors. This one is huge too!
I don't think the picture does it justice.
Also, I nabbed this dairy slab from Williams-Sonoma while on sale too. My sweet friend, Des, from Peeking Thru The Sunflowers ordered one for herself and thought I might like one too.
Fromage means "fresh cheese" in french.
Lastly, I decided to hang my vintage grain sack and table runner out of this tall basket. It actually used to be a laundry basket! I love using baskets everywhere. They are so versatile.
So..........there you have it! Just a few changes that helped to serve me better in the kitchen and add style at the same time.
Thanks for stopping by!
