The Kitchen at the MCC House

Today I thought I’d share a few of the “outtake” photos of the kitchen from my home tour last week, so you can get a better sense of the space.  It’s pretty small; we have about a fourth of the cabinets that we had in our old kitchen, but I haven’t missed any of our cooking gear yet. It’s summer, after all–who needs to cook?

This is what we eat in the summer (along with some Boursin):

 Plus, it looks pretty when you photograph it!

The kitchen has been updated with new cabinets, molding, and granite.  I’m considering painting it the same color as the living and dining areas, but haven’t gotten the motivation yet.

 I did add a chalkboard wall  for menus or whatever else tickles our fancy.

I felt like the area above the sink needed more light, so I used a thrifted wall sconce and it works perfectly in the small space (I think it was in the guest room in our old house; it’s funny how things move around from one house to the next).

I realized that the photos were a bit blurry because I shot with my shutter speed set super slow (to let in extra light) and I should have used a tripod, but these at least give you an idea of the space.

 The kitchen cart was our “island” two houses ago, in Savannah, and it holds a ton of extras.  I’m thankful it’s got wheels on it since I have to roll it a bit to the left every time I open the fridge or freezer, but it’s perfect for our coffee station. With a Keurig, an espresso machine, and an electric kettle for my son’s tea, you can tell we’re pretty darned serious about our morning caffeine!
