Housetour: My Kitchen
The kitchen is finally done. I now realize it looks like my old kitchen, so I guess white and grey are my favourites. It feels good to add some colours, a yellow clock, a red toaster, a turqouise pin board, an orange plate. The floor is our best buy, it's simply vinyl. You should try that at home.
It's been an ordeal. IKEA sent us half the kitchen wrong. Twice. We live 2000 km away from the nearest warehouse, so we can't use the dinner coupons (!) they offered us as an excuse. No Billy's will come near this house in the future, if Arctic Dad is to decide (don't tell him he's not).
The cookbooks are stored in the cupboard. Should I take that as a sign? You know I'm not so into cooking or baking, but I'm not worried. Blogland is full of those who are.
My father's old office chair from the 60s is a favourite item in the kitchen, as well as my grandmother's serving plate. We're getting a real cat next summer.
Looking forward to the weekend, cabin trip with bookcircle best friends. Hope to see the Northern Lights in the wild.
See you soon!
