The painting, caulking and final application of the peel-and-stick subway tiles is finished. I have my kitchen back to a normal and usable state.
The subway tiles and little areas of concern have been corrected by my talented daughter.
She told me she thought I should keep the red and white curtains in the window. I admire her sense of style, so I think I’ll do just that.
I still need to scrub the sink after all the caulking was completed.
I’m loving the gold drawer and door pulls. They add a little touch of elegance I think.
I truly like the simplicity of this kitchen. The white walls, cabinets and appliances feel serene and calming when I walk in here.
There is one thing new. The red salt and pepper shakers I ordered from Amazon.com.
I realize that many people don’t want their flatware and kitchen utensils out on display. But I like it.
I like to be able to wash things in the sink or dishwasher and easily slip them into place where they belong.
I keep what I need to clean dishes and such in this little galvanized tray I’ve had for years.
In it is Dawn dish soap, hand soap, and baking soda for stubborn food I can’t scrub off in both powder and liquid form.
I like having everything within reach. And I also like my narrow little coffee maker.
The red and white theme makes me smile every time I walk into the kitchen. It’s such a cheerful combination of colors.
Overall, I’m quite happy with my little apartment kitchen. It’s about as efficient as I can make it. It’s organized and now I can truly enjoy it.
If I have to hunker down in place for awhile till things settle down, I now have a newly decorated kitchen to prepare food in.
