Here you can see how much of it got shifted over. Who would have thought three inches would have been such a hassle.
In addition to the pantry trimming and shoving of the rest of the cabinet, we also had to trim off the baseboards around the bottom for a few more extra inches to clear the door. My dad didn't want to do it but he felt better when I told him that this wall was going to come down eventually.
And even with all our work the door just barely opens wide enough but hey, it's accessible enough and INSIDE of our house so I'm relieved and pleased.
These four large drawers are such a huge help. I've mentioned it before and I'll mention it again but drawers in kitchens are my absolutely favorite thing.
island to at least house the stand mixer, which seems to be the only guy left without a home. Poor mixer.
doors will make it less umm... ugly.
The linen closet in the hallway is a lifesaver. You would not believe how much stuff fits in here!
Bathrooms to me are such sources of comfort because they're so small they're easy to look finished.
Luckily that dresser and cabinet are providing a lot of storage for sheets and blankets, freeing up more space in the linen closet wherein to dump yet more things.
The yellow sofa cover is back in the meantime 'cause the cats and dogs have been making mincemeat of the white cover. Paw prints and hair up the ying yang.
I want to add another credenza next to the tall white cabinet (to store DVDs and other stuff) and here's the thing: I want something old and wooden. There's already way too much mass retail stuff in this house and I want to try that rule of adding something old to every room in our house to prevent it from becoming generic.
There's a desk under there somewhere.
Okay, now that I have a fridge and food in it I am gonna go make some breakfast. By the way it's amazing having a Sprouts so close by, it's actually the store I was most excited about having nearby. Yes, even more than Ikea.
