Nook Project

I must say that I generally try to be more creative with my post titles. But apparently Barnes and Noble has "Nook" all locked up in the google search market. The best I could come up with own my own was "I Did it All for the Nook(y)," but that seemed a bit much. So, you got "Nook Project." And that is exactly what we are embarking on.

When we first bought our house, the kitchen was gross. We fixed up the cabinets, painted, covered the old backsplash, and put down a new floor. Generally, we were happy with the results, but it was one of our first projects and it needs some fine-tuning.

Most of all, we need more storage. There is a small nook (better word?) in one corner of the kitchen. We originally bought a small wooden pantry to go there, but there's lots of wasted space and it doesn't look quite finished. My plan is to maximize the space and make the kitchen look a little fresher.

This is the first time I've drawn a project plan. I'm going to try to stick to it.

The kitchen when we bought the house. The nook is on the other side of the wall from the stove, facing the dishwasher. Because of space, it's hard to photograph.

The kitchen now. It's time for some different paint.
