4. I built an island
Matt and I moved into our house in June 2015.
Last weekend, we finally cleared out the "kitchen nook" that has been filled with odds and ends from moving and kitchen construction.
That same week, I was struck by an unusual bout of motivation and convinced Matt to go thrift shopping with me. I was looking for a table and chairs for under the window.
We went to at least half a dozen shops. I nearly settled for something okay a couple times, but never pulled the trigger. The last place we went to was closed, but they let us in anyway. And there it was, the perfect table and chair set! A little beat up, but made of solid dark wood, which was exactly what I wanted. Not too big for the space, either!
I put off taking photos until I'd gotten some perfect cushions, but now the space is done!

It's so nice to be able to come out of the bedroom (the door on the right) and into a clean, open room. I'm not stepping over boxes and random junk. I've really enjoyed eating breakfast at the new table instead of having to use the dining room, and it's lovely to be working in the kitchen and not have an eyesore in my peripheral vision.

We are on track to have the kitchen totally done by Passover, which is my goal! I've ordered hardware for the cabinets and once we install it (probably over spring break) I'll post one...LAST...update!
What color-scheme is your kitchen?
Do you have a breakfast space in addition to a dining room?
What's the longest time you've put off unpacking after a move or a trip?
