tales of a sad little kitchen, continued

My house is full of dust. It's not as bad as it might have been, but I continue to cough. I really ought to have worn a mask yesterday. Enough about that. Who wants to see my pathetic wee kitchen?

You may recall that we began tearing this bad boy apart a couple of weeks ago. At that point, it was just the wainscot on the ceiling and a couple of cabinets that were relatively easy to rip out. To be honest, it didn't make a difference in my daily life. Save for the empty space on one wall, this is my kitchen as it's been since we moved in.

Before we begin the tour, I'd like to say two things:

1. My kitchen is horrid. I know. But it's funny what you can live with if you've no other options at hand. It's cluttered but clean, I promise you. Doesn't make it any less horrid.

2. My photos are all over the place. Apologies in advance for the mad dark shots.

Now then. Allons-y!

A full view, poorly lit:


Storage has always been an issue. To that end, we used two rolling carts. And a pot rack. Extra points to whoever spots the Tenth Doctor.


Best. Fridge. Magnet. EVER.

krypto magnet!

Here's the other cart. There's a caddy of cleaning supplies and a recycling bin on the bottom. Still haven't figured out what I'm going to do about the recycling when we're all done. Allow me to assure you that my kitchen is not this tilty. I had to hitch myself halfway up onto the stove to get this shot. My kitchen is very narrow, but not uneven. Well, it's a little uneven, but it's no apartment in Dowisetrepla.


Here's a closer view of the shelves. I'm going to miss them. Kind of.


Corner. Crockpot. Chopping boards. Canisters. Corned Beef (in the crockpot).

Ridiculously dark shot of the kitchen sink that I only included because I had no fallback. Clearly I wasn't fussed enough to put the dishes away before taking the picture. Note, overall, that I didn't tidy up in the slightest. Sorry, flist. I suppose I'm hoping you'll accept me as the flawed creature that I am.

Other corner. Toaster oven. Method all purpose spray, version Pink Grapefruit. Hmm. Not quite as cool as the other corner.

Another dark one. Yeesh.


My main workspace. The banana is there to continue the Doctor Who theme. Bananas are good.


And that's the sad little kitchen that was. Next... destruction! Also, kitties on boxes!
