One year ago my oldest daughter Kendra helped me change up my rental kitchen.
I took the doors off in February. But the kitchen wasn’t complete until March as we had to work around her flip house schedule.
I have to say I love open kitchen cabinets! If there’s dust I don’t see it. And if I don’t see it I don’t worry about it!
I’ve always loved the color combo of red and white, but I keep these colors mainly in my kitchen.
Last year I added a new refrigerator and dishwasher. I bought the refrigerator. The apartment complex changed out the ancient dishwasher that wouldn’t work.
I ordered new drawer pulls and stick and peel subway tiles for the back splash from Amazon. And I found other odds and ends at Tuesday Morning.
The other day I changed things up a bit on the counter top. That’s easy to do and gives me a slightly different look.
Easy Way To Redo Ugly Counter Tops:
I redid the counter top myself with GianiGranite’s Carrera White Marble Epoxy Kit. The epoxy part was the hardest. I didn’t do a perfect job, but it’s good enough.
After using GianiGranite counter top kits before, this one is by far my favorite kit. I like a simple white color on my counter tops.
I truly love walking into my kitchen and seeing these open cabinets. The colors and plates and are so cheerful.
I Truly Love This Look In My Kitchen:
After changing up the look of my apartment kitchen several times over the 7 years I’ve lived here, I really prefer the open cabinet look. I like to just reach up and get what I need without opening the cabinet doors,
Since I live in a small space home, organization and storage is vitally important. So I keep what’s on my counter top corralled where I can easily find things.
I keep snacks in that big vintage bowl in the center of the lowest shelf. And after years of using all different kinds of plates, I really prefer plain white plates.
From time to time I will run across a few white plates at Tuesday Morning that have a different pattern or texture, and I will buy a couple. I don’t care if they all match. Just that they’re all white.
However with the advent of COVID-19 I don’t stroll around in their store now. I miss doing that. You never know what you’ll find there on any given day.
One Year Ago This Month:
Here’s what the kitchen looked like one year ago.
Have you tried open cabinets or shelves instead of cabinets? If I owned this place, I’d really rather have the cabinets yanked down and put up shelves instead.
Would you want to try this look in your own home?
