So after the fridge crapped out on us, we had to get it out and make room for the new fridge. You see, we have this giant bar/island in our kitchen and in order to get the old fridge out and new in, said bar has to be moved.
|See? Giant bar/island. Tiny kitchen|
|Messy giant bar/island (old pic where I was showing John where I had|
destroyed the kitchen while cleaning out cabinets and getting rid of crap
we never used LOL) Notice the small "walkway" between the bar/island
and cabinets? Yeah, tiny.
My kitchen table was in the dining room and was rarely used. It turned into a computer/catch-all table instead.
So bar/island was pushed where the kitchen table was (to the right of the table in the pic above) against the stair railing and the kitchen table was then placed actually IN the kitchen.
Now we actually eat AT the kitchen table every meal! Sure, it's been a little bit of a learning curve not having the giant bar/island in the kitchen to use to prepare food but we're figuring it out. I LOVE how it's opened up the kitchen and the bar/island in the dining room isn't hideous looking. I don't want to get rid of it as it has a lot of storage space and a power strip built in, so it's turned where that's easily accessible (the side where the stools aren't LOL)
And here's the new beauty.
Ain't she pretty? Haha. It might have sucked being forced to buy a new fridge but at least we were able to buy what we wanted (the cheapest LOL) and in the color I wanted, so now ALL my major appliance match! Wahoo!
