The first thing we did was revamp our back room. It went from cluttered catch-all to half-bathroom with organized storage and a window seat/storage.
|Our half bathroom. My favorite room.|
We also added custom-built and custom-designed storage. Thank you, Everett!
|This room is so wee, that it's tough to get a good picture. We added a nook for the freezer with storage above (to the right). The cabinets to the left were made by my brother Everett. Walls and floor were painted.|
I have always wanted a window seat. This is more for looks than functionality, but who cares! I used fabric that I brought back from Africa. It's a nice little nook.
|A bit dark, but you can see the huge window, cabinets to the right, closet to the left, cool fabric on the seat.|
|A better picture with the cabinets visible.|
|My apron collection is to the right; new table/chair combo is where the dishwasher/cutting board/stupid shelf was.|
|Maggie is bored with you. Please notice the exposed beam to the right, right next to the new spice cabinet build by Everett. He also did our new cutting board visible in front of our knives. Notice the bamboo floor and yellow walls. Delicious!|
|A better view of the exposed beam, new spice cabinet and cutting board. We moved the cabinets beneath around a bit to make room for the dishwasher (not in picture) that would be to the right of the sink.|
|Make fun of my veggie people if you will (on shelves to the left), but I love the little buggers! The yellow and white make this room pop.|
|This room is even more difficult to photograph than the back room. The slanted roof makes it hard to use this room for much. This is just before the arrival of our new washer and dryer. Floor is vinyl.|
|Hook-ups are ready for use! Just before the washer and dryer arrive. Notice our new lighting fixture. It reminds Jamie of a 1930's fixture. I told him it worked in the laundry room and made it retro.|
|The washer and dryer work like champs. And this room finally has a utilitarian use. Woo hoo!|
