As you can see, my kitchen is very small.
Because of that, I must do all I can to maximize the the space.
Starting with the table and chairs, I originally planned to paint the table and find new chairs. But the base of the table (I don’t have a picture, yet) is so “fat” that it just takes up too much visual space. I prefer a table like with a base like this one:
Though the same style, the base is a lot thinner. And as for chairs, I like these
And I’ve seriously been thinking about a window seat in my kitchen. Have any of you seen the Ikea Expedit bookcase turned on it’s side and used as a window seat?
(The above images were found on Apartment Therapy)
I think it’s a cool idea and would totally work as seating for the boys. And it’s a major plus that I can place baskets in it to store different things like toys and school supplies for homework.
Using a window seat might just make my idea for short drapes at the window make more sense to some of you
And of course I’m still using these table cloths that I found for a great price at Target!
I’m going to do a part two to this post so I can talk about the rest of the plans for the space. What do you think so far?!?
