Do you ever get the itch for change?
Of course you do. We all do.
Unless you are a statue. But then you most likely would not be reading these words today if you’re one of those.
But then again, if you were a statue, you would probably be Jonesing for change all the livelong day…you would just be rendered incapable of it.
Poor lil statue-friends.
But back to the point at hand. I was itching for change. So I made a lot of them.
Changes, not itches.
In between the sucker punches, I’ve spent the past several months reconfiguring the first floor of my home, assisted by the brilliant mind and loyal friendship of Mindy from Styled Living. Each room has been given a new design or purpose. I’ll show you around in time.
Today? I’d like to start in the kitchen. The room in which I decided that I’d be better off without my kitchen table.
No, we’re not eating off the floors. Although The Small One did propose the idea when I announced my plans to do away with the behemoth thing.
The table, not The Small One.
Again: The point at hand. This is what my kitchen looked like prior to the redesign.
It was a great kitchen. With a great table. But I had this vision…a vision in which my Happy Hour(s) guests didn’t all stand cramped around that smallish island…a vision of a streamlined space which could accommodate meal preparation, homework, before school breakfasts, casual weeknight dinners…and yes…the occasional sizable Happy Hour(s).
We did away with the table.
And…when you consider the expense of a complete kitchen overhaul, the price tag on this project was modest by comparison.
Yet it still satisfied my itch for change.
And the kitchen table?
Oh, it’s tucked away safely in storage. It’s a nice piece, and perhaps it will be put to use again one day.
But in the meantime?
We’re better off without it.
pssssst…itching for some more eye candy? Follow me on Pinterest. All of my home projects…and tons of other goodies…are organized there.
