My Little Kitchen
It's my least favorite room in my home. Not because of it's small size. No, I rather prefer small and cozy. It's that it's smack dab in the middle of the house, with non-existent natural lighting. And the orange faux-wood counter tops just don't do it for me. Neither do the Home Depot Special vinyl covered cupboards. Or the electric oven. Or the 1981 laminate flooring. Or the fluorescent lighting.
But oh! If I could have a new sink with two little windows above it that open outside! And a wood/ gas cook stove. And this chandelier. And some wood or tile or granite counter tops. It can even be really small, and I'd be a happy camper.
But alas, it's a perfectly functional kitchen. Everything is complete, and working, and tidy. And really, aside from aesthetics, there's no reason to change anything. A fiscal investment of that magnitude wouldn't be a responsible move for us to make in this home, that we really don't plan on staying in forever. So for now, I'll have to just keep dreaming, waiting and planning for when it's time to build our dream home.
