Thank you all for the nice comments on my family room wall :) And to answer a question, the large frame on the left holds a photo of my hubby's great grandparents.
If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I struggle with a side area in my kitchen. This area has been many things over the years and has always frustrated me. It is supposed to be a built in desk area, but I never liked it for that purpose...you see I suffer from "prettyvspracticalitis". To put it simply, I hate wasted space and I want things and areas to be practical but my visual brain wants it to be pretty and pleasing to the eye more than the practical aspect(a constant struggle!).
If I knew we were going to stay in this house I would just rip the whole area out and put my hoosier back in the kitchen where it belongs, but that isn't going to happen right now.
So the solution for now came a few weeks ago.... my daughters like to bake, but the supplies were never all in one area. Our food pantry is small and we really needed more room in there, and it was hard to find the baking stuff. With some prompting from them and the need to clean out the pantry, we came up with a baking center....(call it a modern day hoosier :) )
I can't wait to add a touch of Christmas to this area. Oh, and I just realized while I was typing this, I need to add the cookie cutters to the center!!
What do you think? Good solution to a problem area?
Have a great day,
