Kitchen Reno Day Ten


Today I moved the make shift living room kitchen back in!
The dishwasher and I worked in tandem for 9 hours washing each
item before things went into cupboards and drawers!


Funny how things didn't end up how I imagined them.
I thought I'd put dishes into those lit cabinets!
But I have so many drawers and cupboards, I decided
maybe displaying some nicer pieces would be more fun.


It feels good to look at something that is clean and orderly. ha.


All these clean pots and pans and I'm too tired to cook. haha.
I think it will be a frozen pizza in the oven tonight.

  1. It all looks fabulous and yet it isn't finished yet . . . just imagine what it will be like when it is completed.
    A marathon of dish washing . . . and moving stuff back into the kitchen . . .
    Love the cutlery drawer.
    You are very orderly . . . great to have a place for everything and to know where it is . . . :)

    2. Agree with Deb about the windows . . . I see they, or two of them, are sash design. Are they wood or UPVC?

    3. Interesting! We do have some different words for things . . . . :)
      And the windows to the right ~ do they give you the view to Golden Girl ? . . . :)

    5. Right those three windows that make up the nook is where my desk is...where I take most of my picture of birds and Garden Girl. I miss that!

    6. I expect you will be moving your desk back soon then you can relax and see and photograph your favorite things . . :)

      Love the illuminated cabinets displaying your choice 'nick nacks' . . . :)

  2. It looks great and it's moving along at a wonderful rate of speed!
    I love the lighted cabinets. Very nice.
    You might be pleased to know that my kitchen had a mess today too after "someone" put his foot though the roof.
    Oh well, It was just a small mess really. It didn't stop me from whipping up an apple pie or two this afternoon.
    :0)

    Hey, Eddie! Cut that out!!!

    1. Thanks, Deb. They were just plain rectangles and I dressed them up a bit with the peaks and stained glass look.

    1. It's kind of like moving in for the first time....everything neat and tidy and in it's place. Some real living in it and it probably won't stay like that. ha.

  10. Oo-la-la! Love your display and I agree that if you have room for the dishes elsewhere, why not display your special pieces there. Looks so great Betsy - like a magazine!

    1. Yes, I'm loving the display! Why not? I'm putting extra lotion on my hands tonight and I know I'm going to sleep like a rock. ha.

  12. It's all coming along nicely Betsy.
    Love your glass-fronted cupboards, I've always wanted one or two of those in my kitchen, they make a beautiful display case.
    Hope the most of the work is behind you now, and everything all clean and sparkly just in time for Thanksgiving dinner :)

    1. Thanks, Jo...and it's so good to see you! Yes, by Thanksgiving everything should be done, clean and in it's place. I can't wait!

    1. It was pretty fun finding a spot for everything. But you should have seen the mister trying to find a spoon last night. ha. Nothing is in the same place as the old kitchen!

  14. Seeing your kitchen beginning to bloom makes me think about modernising my own, throw out the old dresser and cupboards and pay a visit to Ikea.
    I see you like "whiteware" crockery, same as me. Eating off patterned plates, especially flower patterns, puts me off my food!
    I also have the same wooden cutlery (flatware?) trays as you! Great minds think alike!

    1. Well, I know you're joking about that.....you wouldn't get rid of all that lovely old world charm! I do love white ironstone (that's what we call it) and it's plentiful at the auctions. Maybe pieces I've found in the trash, including our dinner plates. Yes, great minds. :) But we already knew that. ha.

  15. Send the dresser my way, Keith - I love it. :-)

  16. Looking fantastic! I'm still eyeballing those windows..so pretty! Anyone who tangles with a dishwasher for nine hours deserves take out!

    1. Well, we (me and the dishwasher) we both doing dishes simultaneously, so it wasn't really tangles...maybe more like the Tango. lol....

  17. Fabulous! I am envying the space in your drawer and that gadget for pan lids.
