Big Beautiful Backsplash

Here’s a little reminder of how the kitchen looked when we moved in.  Note in the first picture there is an upper cabinet beside the window.  To the left of it, above the fridge is another, shorter cabinet, slightly useless since it’s so far back.  You know the type, you may even own one yourself.… Continue reading Big Beautiful Backsplash

Gold and all that Glitters

This tray/table always seemed too high to me. I’m sure it would make a great little statement somewhere, like a fabulous little bar or something, but where we need it to be, it’s just ridiculously proportioned. A resting cup of coffee often got knocked before it actually got to the resting spot and that led… Continue reading Gold and all that Glitters
