A Kitchen Update (part 2 of 2)

I love the idea of open shelving in the kitchen! Although I love this kitchen, I cannot imagine dusting all those shelves and washing those dusty dishes before I use them.

I glued 60 cents worth of scrapbook paper to the back of the cabinet and

Cereal bowls and glasses where the kids can easily reach them.
Plates and serving dishes where I can easily reach them ( on my tiptoes )

And I find myself walking into the kitchen frequently just to stare

I really think

my kitchen is much happier now!

Your kitchen is definitely happier! I have considered this and pondered which cabinet to choose, but alas...I have not. Yet. Perhaps you will inspire me! :)

Great deco!

You've inspired me and given me courage. I pretty much hate my cabinets and now you've got my wheels turning...
