My Kitchen POTD

(click on picture to enlarge)
Erin over at the Pub on 2 Peas posted a question this morning about the color of our appliances & also asking us to post pictures if we could, so I thought that would give me the perfect POTD for today. I have this love/hate relationship with my kitchen. I love my granite countertops, I love the plum colored walls, I love all my grape decorations (even though I don't even eat grapes), I love the centerpiece that a dear friend made for me & I love my kitchen when it's clean....and yes, I did clean it just to take this picture ;). But I hate cooking! I admit it.....I am sooo NOT a cook! And I probably never will be. I hate it when my kitchen is dirty & it seems like my island is always cluttered.....no matter how many times I clean it off, by the end of the day, it ends up being the 'catch all' for everything from the mail, newspaper, keys, my purse & Jim's backpack that he takes to work. I keep saying that I'm not gonna let it get cluttered again, but that just never works. We've done a lot of remodeling to our kitchen since we purchased our home 5 years ago. We had the granite countertops installed 2 years ago along with a new black sink & chrome faucet, the tile floor & backsplash were just installed 2 months ago, we hung up a pot rack above the island, painted the kitchen twice & changed the border 3 times plus we purchased a new fridge & stove. Sometimes I wish we could change out the cabinets, too, but I don't see that happening now after getting the granite. Ah well.....it's my kitchen & I love/hate it :)

Here are some pics of my bottle collection that I have on the top of my cabinets. Our downstairs ceilings are 10 feet high, so I love having all this space above my cabinets to display things:



I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for all the wonderful comments on my POTD's. I really enjoy reading them!

Off to do some scrapping & more cleaning.

Have a great day,
Benita
