I started by putting some of my cookbooks on my counter I keep them in a closet in my office and always looking at them so decided to bring them out.
I also love before and after pictures posted so thought I would try some before and after.
So my counter before, not very attractive
really this looks better than it usually does but nothing to show off
Like I said this looks pretty plain except for that potato laying there waiting on me to cook it LOL
Before I finish the kitchen wanted to tell you I went back to Kansas City Sunday and we went to this place. named Ju Ju. We both had heard about it and had to check it out. a lot of 60's things lots of painted furniture and odds and ends a retro place for sure.
Then we went to the Plaza shopped till 4pm then had a late lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. We just had a 10 minute wait the place was packed of course it being Mother's day.
We set outside by the fountain and it was so nice
OK back to the kitchen make over. I wanted to show these refrigerator dishes that was my grandmothers and my Mom had them so now I have them and I am starting to use them for things I put in the refrigerator. Back when I was a kid this sounds pitiful but there never was left overs at our house there was 6 of us around the table and we licked the platter clean every meal. LOL really
I remember sitting around my grandmother's 42 inch oak round table eating fried chicken every Sunday along with mashed potatoes and usually green beans. I always wanted dessert and some Sundays Grandma had a pie made, loved it .My favorite was her chicken and dumplings
She always made a white coconut cake on Easter. That is the only holiday I remember the white coconut cake being make. But I don't remember everything when I was a kid LOL
I put my bottles of vitamins in my silver covered casserole.
Now I don't have a newer house with the $50,000 dollar kitchen but love my little kitchen
Standing back looking what I did after I put tables in the garage and filled them with yard sale stuff then mowed the front and back yard . Now it time to rest
Another before and after my new yard shed
