So, I know I STILL haven't shown any house tours,
but it's probably because even after a gagillion hours of "rehab"
and a serious update, it still doesn't feel complete enough to share.
Case in point, the kitchen.
At it's current state it's 100% better than it was,
but my dream of a big white kitchen (on a budget) looks amateur and DIRTY.
Also, as the rest of the home has developed, the color palette is all wrong.
So, like any
design minded lady crazy person,
I'm planning a complete overhaul (still on a budget)
Out with the white cabs and in with the moody grey!
Open shelving, breakfast nooks, wood backsplash and
a MUCH SMALLER, "built in" fridge are on the agenda.
One of my many hurdles is this awkward, unusable corner I'm trying to mend.
Storage shouldn't be taken away, but for a cute enough option, I'm willing to knock something down :)
Here's what I'm talking about:
new Craigslist fridge will be the same or only slighter deeper than the counter,
and were planning on creating a "built in" look to be able to better utilize the uppers.

Still, the awkward corner seems dark and unusable.
What should I do to make it better?
lose the doors and add some pretty storage like these?
lose the cabinets altogether and insert a little appliance garage?
rig up some window-facing storage?
make a little nook for cookbooks?
maybe just leave it alone and add some extra storage/organization on the outside?
I mean, let's be real, if there was no budget we'd be working with something like this:
So QUICK! What do you think? I'm off for paint/fabric samples...TODAY!
