Hi friends! Today, I am so excited to share a tour of my “closet” kitchen. We’ve lived in this apartment for almost a year (next week) and we just finalized our kitchen. We are pretty proud of how inexpensive, easy, and enjoyable this makeover was.
We did this makeover in two parts. The first part was as soon as we moved in. The kitchen was bare and lacked storage space. Peter, took a few days out in our backyard to cut, paint, and hang shelving for dishes. He also put up a few Ikea racks to hang all of our pots and big cooking utensils. I spent the first few days selling all of our vintage dishes and bought white simple and clean ones. In combination this helped create a more functional and open space for our initial needs.
With those few changes we left the kitchen as is and worked on other rooms during the year. Here’s how it looked during that time:
The cabinets and counter were dark and outdated and I realized that my personal time to complete projects was winding down as we will have our hands full with a baby soon. I spent many nights looking on Pinterest for inspiration, and let me tell you, it was the best. I saw many small kitchens like mine that were beautiful and updated with just a few little steps.
I will be back next week with some tips on how to live with and love your tiny kitchen. Thank you so much for letting me share this space! Please feel free to share, comment, or whatever you want with these pictures with proper credit, no need to ask first.
