This is the corner of the kitchen I wanted to de-clutter and lighten up a little. It is near the back door and the table becomes a catch-all. I also wanted to change the dark table and chairs for something lighter.
The table was also a bit bigger than I needed, no one actually eats in the kitchen.
I removed the shelves, added two more and painted them all my favorite light green.
The 'new' table was a library table of my grandmother's and it also got a fresh coat of the green paint. I took one of the dark chairs and painted it a pale buttery yellow.
Next it was time to arrange the dishware on the shelves- my favorite part!
Since my kitchen is in the northwest corner of the house it doesn't get a lot of sunlight, but this area now works nicely as a cozy, convenient desk and the lamplight is very inviting!
