It is really beginning to look like Spring around here! The weather has been in the 80's the last couple of days and people are beginning to come back to the beach. I've been so busy around here I have not even been over to the ocean! I have been trying to do a little, much needed, Spring cleaning around here. Also, I've been painting furniture for the shop and we have a few other projects going on. Over the last couple of months we have moved our 13 year old son, Tanner, and our almost 12 (B-day is Friday) year old daughter, Kinsley, up to the third floor of our house. I will share their new rooms in a later post. Tanner and Kinsley's old rooms are being converted into guest rooms which need to be painted and I am working on some furniture for them as well. I will show you them later too. I mentioned earlier that I've been spring cleaning which brings me to the last project we have going on. We are trying to get the garage cleaned out so my husband, William, can finally have a room in our home! He says it is long overdue! The garage will probably take the longest time to complete. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
Today I wanted to share some pictures of our kitchen. When we built this house, we built it as a vacation home with thoughts that we might make it our permanent residence. It is not huge by any means, but comfortable.
Below is our pantry, all of our can goods and other food with the exception of the kid's snacks for school is stored here.
We have all our baking stones and cutting boards stored in the basket below. I got the basket idea from The Polished Pebble. Kelley has a great blog and I love to check in with her to see what she has going on. Our everyday dishes are stored on the hanging rack and on the blue cart ( a beach shabby find).
Here is one more picture of our island. Our kitchen, living room and dining room our open, which is nice especially when we are all here.
Well, I guess I should go, but before I do, I wanted to mention that I have linked up with Sara over at A Beach Cottage for the "Good Life Wednesdays" blog party . Know I'm off to finish up some painting. Have a great day and I will talk to you all soon:)
Did you notice the beach cottage button? Now if I can remember how to do it..... Thanks Grace!
