This cute and cozy little Bistro set was placed in front of the windows. It replaces a rather hefty butcher block island that floated in the middle of the floor. Buyers LOVE large kitchens. I wanted this kitchen to look as large as possible. Late summer is the perfect time of year to purchase a bistro table and chairs on sale.
I also moved the pair of metal etageres flanking the windows into the dining room. The etagers added to the cramped feel of this kitchen.There was a bevy of counter top appliances, utensil holders, and accessories in this kitchen. We transferred boxes and boxes of stuff into storage. I made two fresh floral arrangements from $16 grocery store flowers and greenery from Virginia's yard. I bought the large urn and smaller vase at a consignment shop while vacationing.
I removed all the little doodads on top of her cabinets. Yes, that is a leftover Christmas Poinsettia on the island trying desperately to hang on. RIP Poinsettia. It went to the backyard compost.
This is the kitchen during transition. Look how large it is!
This is a better picture of the cool pottery I used for the flower arrangements.
Here is a wee counter top vignette. Using a see through glass canister creates the illusion of more counter space.
Next posting, I'll reveal the dining room!
