Our vintage hood sounds like a rocket blasting off.
Cover your eyes for the next photo. It's not appropriate for young children.
Yes, it's a boob. There are two of them. Lovely ceiling tiles again.
Huge wood-burning fireplace.
The fireplace ain't brick, though. It's all a facade, sadly. And it's been through a few half-hearted repairs.
Behold the lovely linoleum flooring, though. It's actually in great shape. Too bad it's hideous.
Wallpaper and fake wood paneling.
We only have two windows to the exterior. Notice the 1980s era roman shade. And our brand-new faucet.
Gross. This is above the "office" area in the corner. (did I tell you there are 7 light switches in the kitchen?)
Our temporary storage solution. The door leads to the back sunroom.
Finally, our new fridge. It is only about 17.5 cubic feet, and you see it fills the space.
And yes, there are dirty dishes in the sink. I have three small children, remember?
So there you have it. My kitchen. Any suggestions? Bring it on. Can be a dream material, something funky, a traditional idea. Whatever. (one final note: the floor is not level. not even close, so flooring would have to be something that could handle it)
