Our kitchen is tiny, and it's impossible to cook in unless I'm alone (Nick has an excuse not to help, that's not good!) and it makes entertaining almost impossible. In fact, the only time we entertain is during the summer, when we can go outside.
Granted, our current kitchen is much better than our previous kitchen (below). YIKES! We lived in this apartment for two years while I was getting my Master's degree at THE Ohio State University (Go Bucks!).
But, let's face it, I work in a place that has a better kitchen than I do! In fact, this kitchen (below) was designed to showcase famous chefs (below is last year's Top Chef winner, Paul Qui!). I mean, talk about an OPEN concept!
Earlier this year Nick and I took on the project of painting our hideous cabinets. Three months later (yes, THREE MONTHS) they really weren't any better than they were when we started.....
We have a beautiful garden, which produces a bounty of delicious foods, such as last year's explosion of butternut squash.
I made butternut squash cookies, butternut squash lasagna, fries, smoothies, sauce, pizza.....the list goes on. But sadly no one was able to come over and enjoy the meals, because entertaining in our house is impossible!
Nick and I were watching Kitchen Cousins one day and I had this brilliant idea. You see this wall, that blocks any view to the living room? I want it demolished!
The only problem is that our fridge and oven are against the wall, AND we have stairs that are located right there, when you open the door.
HOWEVER, I think it's possible to find a smaller oven and fridge, and take out those cabinets in the corner, to make room for the appliances (we could do without those cabinets) AND maybe extend our cabinets UP to make more room and to make the space look larger (I got that idea from Kitchen Cousins!).
It's just...such a cute kitchen, but it's not used and I am ready to ENTERTAIN!
The wall in the corner could also be demolished, opening up the kitchen and dining area even more.
We ponder the thought of a new kitche each and every day...
But we really can't afford one.
Can you help?!?!
