I'm Dreaming of A Nice Kitchen...

This, my friends, is my kitchen. And although just one photo, there is not much else in it. And it works and I am thankful.
But, one day it will happen and the husband will say, "Honey Lamb, it's time to do the kitchen".

Okay- so maybe he won't say honey-lamb, but that's not the point!
And when he says its time, I'll be ready!

I want blackboards- and this I can do myself. I want a black splash of blackboards that I can write whatever I want on. I love this one with the cabinets painted.

I can even write the menu for the week.

I want vinyl labels on clear containers. And I want a large thin container for straws- the husband has been using them lately and they come in so many nice colors.

Or maybe I would get these labels that I can write on them in chalk!

I want a cool recycling bin to separate all the recyclables and the kids won't bother me about saving the earth. Treehuggers!

I saw a movie when I was young and their kitchen was black and white tiles- this screams kitchen to me and I love it.

And I love the idea of an island and the kids eating cereal on it or telling me about their day.

And on that old show, "Everybody Loves Raymond", they had corner glass kitchen cabinets- I love these and know I would have to keep them tidy because people could see in, but I love them.

And my last item is something I find out of character for myself. But I have been in love with fiestaware since we registered for our wedding at JcPenney over 12 years ago.
I didn't register for it and of course, went for something practical.
But the love for the fiestaware is still there. I want every color and want to mix and match and let the color shine through the glass cabinets.

What's your favorite thing in your kitchen or what would you love to have?

  5. Love the blackboard idea and the colorful dishes!

  6. I love the idea of chalkboards! I also would love to have a large one for meal planning. I also love the term "honey lamb" :) Hope you hear it soon & get your dream kitchen!

  7. I love the second picture, along with an island. Our kitchen is small but it has a nice bay window which makes it nice to me! If I ever move into a house with a large kitchen I would love a breakfast type counter with stools where the kids could sit while I cooked :) I love the glass cabinets too, but what a job to keep clean (inside and out)!

  8. I looove fiestaware, it's one of my favorite wedding items!

    And I would SO love chalkboard cabinets...never seen any!

    ...I'm wondering (from your comment this AM)...are you going to be a 'newbie' this coming school year?!?!!


  14. I love your white cabinets! I'm seriously consider painting mine white. They make the kitchen seem so much brighter, airier, lighter. I'm not sure about the chalk board cabinets. I can only imagine the kinds of art pieces my boys would leave for me! But, I do love the idea of a chalkboard wall, and I really liked those canisters! Oh, and I love fiestaware too. It's so...festive! (By the way, you've been getting a boatload of comments go girl!)

  15. I love it! Really love the chalkboard wall!

    My inspiration :)
