Show Us Your Life Home Tours - Kitchen

Two posts in one day, I know! :)

I thought I would link up with Kelly's Korner to Show Us Your Life - Kitchens!

Here is the view when you walk in from the garage.  

When we bought this house 2.5yrs ago, we installed granite counter tops, back splash, sink, and appliances.  
I sold the old {white} appliances on Craigs List.  :)  

However, we did keep the white trash compactor.
Why you ask, because those suckers are crazy expensive!
More than a fridge!  I thought the OCD in me would be pushed to the extreme with the lone-white appliance, but now I don't even notice it.  Oh, and I love having one. 
It beats changing a trash bag every other day!

We have an open floor plan so you can see into the living room from the kitchen.

One thing I really like is the wall of windows in the kitchen and into the living room.  
It lets in a lot of natural light, so I usually don't even have to turn on lights.
and if the kiddos want to play outside, I can keep an eye on them.  

Another peak looking into the kitchen from the living room.  

One day I would love to install new tile that looks like hardwood floors (yes, there is such a thing) and I would love to stain/paint (whichever) our cabinets.  
I'm not crazy about the current color, I think it looks dated.    

Oh, and when I say I, I mean Kris :)

Thanks for stopping by!  I needed a reason to tidy up :)

That's really awesome. Backlash is in place and you manage to arrange your cookware in an awesome idea.
