Beach Cottage Kitchen Update
Tue 29th, May, 2012
So this is the cooking side of the teeniest tiniest kitchen in the rattiest old cottage on the beaches… well this is what it used to look like when these open shelves were put in…
Now Beach Cottage lovelies, that is changing.
You see, I love open shelving and I love decanting, indeed I could and did, write a whole long-winded post about it, I was the decanting happy dancer, ooh yeah….
This was the brief plan then for the kitchen, I was DETERMINED to have an open shelving kitchen with lots and lots of jars and pots out on show….and for the most part it’s working very well, even if it is the teeniest kitchen in the Southern Hemisphere.
But sometimes a girl might have to admit she’s wrong and might have to admit that she needs a little cupboard in her life… however she would not openly admit that to the person who told her so in the first place. Of course not.
and now the contents of the shelving and hooks is all over the kitchen. This does not a happy Mrs Beach Cottage make.
Shall I tell you another person who isn’t too impressed?
That would be Mr Beach Cottage.
Me : ‘Oh Mr Beach Cottage I cannot wait to get some cupboards in here so it’s all tidy & put away on this side!’
Mr BC : ‘Oh Mrs Beach Cottage when I told you you would get fed up with it you poured scorn & mirth upon me and shooed me away telling me to just put up those darn shelves!’
Me : ‘Mr Beach Cottage how could you say such a thing? I would never speak with such scorn about anything you might say!’
muttering ‘Why can’t we just be normal and just not do DIY at the weekend’
arms are folded
and now it’s Tuesday and this is where we are at…
and one of the Beach Cottage Crew is in a sporting event all this week meaning trips to watch, meaning this won’t be getting done any sooner
not digging the mess ladies, not at all…
there will be two of these cupboards
source : IKEA
I think they are perfect for beachy decor / coastal style
I have gone for the large size to utilize all of the space all the way to the top….
You can see here how big they are…
Now I am scared that when they go up on the wall I won’t like their ‘tallness’
If he puts them up and I don’t like them, I will need more than favours…
…and now you know why I needed to hide the crate…
What do you think of the cupboards, do you think they go with the sorta beach vintage coastal style look I try to get here in this old cottage?
Bye for now lovelies, say a prayer for me, my kiddo and those cupboards
the last time Mr Beach Cottage took on a job like this, he did a guest post on here about it and balanced on stools while drinking beer
