Mom's New Yellow Kitchen

Mom's New Yellow Kitchen

Just in time to wrap up Color Month here at ATDC, we finally finished the "casual kitchen cure" we began this summer. We really appreciated all the helpful suggestions from AT readers, and tried to incorporate some of them in the redesign. We're still on the lookout for fabric so we can reupholstery the chairs, but otherwise we're pretty happy with the results...

We cleared the clutter off the front of the fridge, relegating Mom's beloved magnets to the side. The microwave cart was reorganized, and we are on the lookout to replace it with a piece that has closed storage.

The Ikea pot rack is our favorite kitchen project as before the pots and pans were all on (or in) the stove!

We got rid of the large trashcan that used to sit under the window, and replaced it with this small unit that slips into the space between the wall and the stove- out of sight and easier to empty!

We got rid of the extra shelving unit in the dining room which definitely helped reduce the visual clutter. We painted the soffit white in order to give the wall some visual interest. We still hope to hang a light above the dining room table, but that may be a project for the spring...
