My Place and Yours: Kitchen Love

This weeks theme for My Place and Yours over at Vic's, but hosted by Nic and Tracey is kitchen love - which couldn't be more timely in our little house...

This is a picture of our old kitchen bench. ( this is NOT the kitchen love bit at all...) It wobbled terribly- it says a lot about his skill that Chef was able to produce meals of such outstanding quality on this rickety old thing. And see the shelves on the left with all the stuff on the condiments, oils, etc on them. Gone. The shelves are gone. Hooray!!!!

Replaced by this gorgeous 2.3metre piece of red mahogony with big deep nice drawers ( haven't finished that bit yet and the strips of raw wood showing on the back will be covered -we are still in discussions about timber vs metal handles...) I am feeling the love!

A good friend of mine described it as sexy. It is! Soon, as in next year, when we have saved some more money we will do the other side of the kitchen in the same wood or maybe in stainless steel and get rid of the curtains we hate too- and we will have cupboard doors! hooray!!!

  4. After my recent alarming oven experiences, I'm afraid I can't stop ogling the fine specimen in your kitchen. Promise I'll get to the sexy curves in a bit...
