So, come on in!
The natural light coming in from the windows makes all the difference throughout the year. I stand at my sink and overlook the back garden, which is a real treat! The electric range, which is caving in in the middle and has a broken drawer and only two working burners, will be on its way out soon. We plan to replace it with a white double-oven gas (or dual fuel) range.

This is the breakfast nook-turned extra kitchen prep area. My friend, Joel, and I built this piece from reclaimed wood, although it's not quite finished. Below, we store things like the VitaClay rice cooker, and various food stuff like oils and vinegars.
|See that cute crocheted cupcake on the top shelf? That was a gift from a U.K. swap buddy.|
The shelves, also reclaimed wood, hold jars of grains, pasta, beans, and other items we use frequently, as well as our vegan cookbook collection! Non-vegan cookbooks reside in the dining room.
|The books on the end are library rentals!|
|The drawers contain some of our spices and teas.|
|Juicer, popcorn can-turned kibble container, and other items live on the other side of the nook.|
The bee curtains were actually hand towels I purchased on Etsy. We love bees (if you couldn't tell from the other photos!) You can also see the adorable soap bottle apron my grandma made.
|I spy Matt's favorite kitchen gadget in the bottom right corner.|
|Andy peers at the somewhat usual pantry contents.|
I am in love with the color I painted the kitchen. I got the paint mixed at Miller, but the color is Farrow&Ball's Chappell Green.
|My beloved measuring cups, magnetic knife strip, and slow-cooker.|
And, while I like my thrifted dishes and glasses, I decided not to bore you with glimpses into all of my cabinets. I'll leave you with this colorful photo of some of my bakeware.
|Le Creuset, I love you.|
This concludes the tour of my kitchen. I looooove peaking into other peoples' homes, so if you have a link to your very own kitchen tour, please do share it below!
