The first two photos are from a couple blogs I love. The first belongs to Bakelite Bebe. Classic! I just love it. While you're there check out the rest of her house and those adorable Boston Terriers! The second is Mothers Kitchen. Darling! Frankie's Wife proves kitschyness is far from tacky with her elegant kitchen.
Needless to say looking at these blogs has created 'kitchen envy'. I was satisfied with my kitchen previously...now, not so much. If you haven't seen my kitchen before but the next 4 pictures give you a little glimpse. My kitchen is large but there is a poor use of all that space in it's layout. It also happens to be the most popular room in the house. I want it to be totally functional and beautiful. Mav and I both agree the knotty pine (pictured below) would be perfect. Don't you agree?
