If you missed any posts from last week, check out the Year One series where I covered the entryway, living and dining areas. Moving on to the kitchen! This probably looks the most similar to move in day but I’ve made quite a few subtle changes in this small space.
Here’s a look at the empty kitchen when I first viewed this apartment: Surrounded with moving boxes: Putting a few things away in the cabinets on moving day. I can’t imagine life without this lovely little shelf riser insert (whatever it’s actually called). I might get another one for my next place. They are so helpful for those with limited cabinet space. Then I changed out the hardware for brass cabinet and bin pulls: Added a new coffee maker (brewstation): Used some of the leftover decals from the entryway on this beam: Added art and dish towels: Made a quick and easy DIY painted vase to hold pens, scissors and dry erase markers: Also made a faux terrarium: Organized my mail mess and changed a couple items on the small window ledge: Finally purchased my amazing kilim runner: Found a quick and easy solution for extra counter space: Organized my drawers: And here’s the final look!
Check back tomorrow for the last post in the Year One series.. the bedroom/office area.
