Apartment Progress... Kitchen







So here's my small open kitchen; nothing special but at least it's new. The broker told me the cabinets would be white which I would have liked a lot better, but oh well. I'm missing doors on one of the cabinets which the landlord says is on backorder, but after six months of waiting I'm starting to doubt his story... I was going to paint the back wall a color but I don't want to draw attention to it so I'm keeping it white for now. The boxes above the fridge hold household items; lightbulbs, vacuum bags, extension cords; ski clothes; and my paint kit.

UPDATE: check out some more recent pics here.

Hi!
I love reading your blog...you inspire me to edit and be organised, which really is not my first nature. I have a question about your toaster. I know this seems random, but I ask, because someone always turns my toaster the way you have yours, with the long side showing. I display mine with the lever on the short front side showing. I've learned by now, that probably everything you do has a purpose, so I wonder what it is. Thanks again for sharing so much with the plebes who don't have a clue!

lemon tart: thanks! as for the toaster, i have it like that because of the limited counter space. it gives me a little extra room to place things, more so than if i had it the other way. could that be why your toaster seems to be getting turned that way as well? :o)

Thanks for your quick reply!
It occurred to me after I posted and revisited the picture that maximizing the counter space might be the reasoning behind it.

I would ask my toaster moving culprit, but we don't speak the same language, and it's really not a big deal. I just thought maybe I didn't know some special secret. Thanks again...I look forward to reading your updates.
