Hooray!! Finally, a pretty kitchen. A dreamy one. One that felt like mine. A couple fun things to note: My lid rack secured to the side of the cabinet, thanks to pushing the stove a little closer to the wall, the drawer pulls with a pop of blue (more on those later), and, hello, blueberry muffins.
My dear mother blew me away by having the bar-cart of my dreams appear on my front doorstep one morning. It became my coffee/tea bar immediately. I literally stopped everything and put that little nook together. Now, Bambi? Really? Yes. Bambi. Retro Bambi. The end.
Little details make a house a home. I swear by flowers. Not really, but you know what I mean. Grocery stores sell them cheap enough and they make a world of difference in a space. A simple platter to collect mail does too. Trust me. You'll feel like Carson delivers your mail to you personally on that platter and it'll make you grin.
Granted, the bedsheet is still on my couch and the piles of unpacked boxes are still in the corner, but I couldnt have been prouder of how far this space has come.

Okay, about the drawer pulls. One word: Goodwill. A wise woman once said to me as we walked into Goodwill, dont come looking for anything specific and youll find what youre looking for. As soon as I saw these I knew I needed to alter my kitchen remodel a bit. I hadnt planned on this accent piece but it adds a level of pulled-together design to the overall space and, only one of the drawers even had a pull to begin with so I really did need to replace them. If that wasnt enough, it was $2.75 for the set. Boxed new from Target. Truth.
