Kitchen Dreaming

Since we just moved, it’s hard to not pin every kitchen picture I see on Pinterest. Our old apartment had way more space (including cupboard and counter space) so I’ve been looking for ways to organize all our kitchen stuff that just doesn’t fit. For now we’re using our black Ikea 2×4 cubed bookshelf to hold pots and the appliances that take up too much counter space! It works well but doesn’t fit in with the other colors in the kitchen. It’s just til we can find a pot rack and maybe some shelves… and a small enough island or narrow enough buffet piece. Since I don’t think I ever put up pictures of our kitchen in our last apartment, here it is!

I’m very obsessed with coffee. We might even have space for something around this size:

Loving all the yellow with these shelves!

 

These bold stripes are perfect.

 

Great breakfast area with such an awesome table!
