The 4 Moms are doing a month long Open House posted each Thursday and the second one is Kitchen and Dining Room. You can visit their pics back to the 4 mom’s here for Kimberly at Raising Olives, here for the Deputy Headmistress at The Common Room, here for Connie at Smockity Frocks, and here for KimC at Life in a Shoe.
This is a view of the far end of our kitchen. We remodeled a number of years ago and this room used to be our dining room. Before we remodeled, the pass through you see used to be a doorway into a sunroom.
Here you are standing right inside the doorway. There used to be a wall that divided the two rooms right where the counter juts out. We discovered just how shoddy some of the work that had been done on this house was when we went to remove that wall...it was only held up by two nails. The doorway you see to the right is another entrance into what used to be the sunroom and is now our dining area....we don't have a formal dining room in the house, as you will see.
A view from the other corner of the room...the main entry way is just out of sight to your left. The lovely duct tape that you can see on the microwave is courtesy of our youngest who decided to hit the microwave one day with a big spoon. How he could reach that high is beyond me...he was only 1 1/2yr old at the time.
This is a view when standing in the doorway mentioned above. Prior to remodeling there used to be sliding glass doors in both this doorway and in the pass through area.
This is our dining room table...had a hard time getting it all in the pic. ;) We still have 3 more leaves that can go into it. It's called a reunion table and seats 16 comfortably although we have had up to 20 around it at one time. The nice thing about this table is that it is extra wide so there is plenty of room for food in the middle and you still have room for your plates and stuff around the edges.
The milk jugs that you can see on the freezer in this pic are a homeschool project...at some point these will turn into piggy banks.
Even though we did the remodeling of the kitchen years ago, we never seem to get around to painting it. Something always seems to come up that takes any spare money we might have. But one of these days I would love to paint it a lovely shade of green and have yellow accents.
That concludes the tour of our kitchen/dining room. Hope you enjoyed it and thanks for stopping by! You can check out the links at the top of this post for others in the tour. :)
