i did paint and switch out the light fixture. we also got all new appliances. but we still have particle board cabinets and laminate counters that actually have burn marks in some spots. oh! and we have this built-in cutting board thing (under my pretty butcher block) that is so so SO gross. and a cracked tile floor.
|this is the whole kitchen. save for the fridge directly behind me. i can probably touch the microwave and window at the same time. and my arms are of normal length.|
searching "galley kitchens" on pinterest, i realized that any kitchen that's semi rectangular gets assigned the galley label. also, if my kitchen was the size of any of these, i'd have zero problems trying to squeeze my butt between sean's and the dishwasher door.
that lemon tree thing on the counter would take up my whole kitchen.
this one's closer but still feels pretty wide. i'd need go-go-gadget arms to reach both sides at the same time.
i guess people don't make pretty kitchens in tiny sizes? does everyone just tack a bulky addition onto their house and call it a ($60K) day? that's what the majority of the neighbors have done but we are definitely not ready for that.
(i've typed galley so many times it's starting to look like a made-up word.)
