Kitchen Wrap Up.



It was a week.

Here is a collage of the befores, originally posted here


















And how much better it is.

It is hard to describe how I feel in this kitchen. I will be putting the map back up, but that's it. The long shelf that was above the stove isn't being replaced and the wall above the books will stay bare. The "white space" truly does feel like breathing room. Somehow, I really do feel freer. Maybe it's simple. Maybe it's because there isn't something vying for my attention at the corner of my eye. Oddly enough, I also feel like something has been removed from me: guilt, or shame, or something. I'm guessing...but this scrubbed and denuded kitchen feels fantastic.

It looks so tidy! Now I feel like I should go paper my shelves! Where did you get the cute paper?

And I'm glad to hear the map is going up, I was a little sad to see it gone. Would you ever think of framing it?

Thanks! I don't know where I got that paper: but I bought it to cover the plywood the husband and I purchased to make a "kiddie door" for the stairs when my son (now 12) was a toddler.
