Hey Yall,

I thought it might be cool to see others kitchens of where we bake our items. If its in your home then show your home kitchen. If its in your shop then show your shop kitchen. Im always out for new ideas on how to improve my kitchen or home. Here is my kitchen at my home of where I bake/cook.

Cake Decorating is a new hobby for me. I don't plan to ever get into selling. I have MANY hobbies.
My kitchen could be bigger and more counter space would nice. Our cupboards cost a total of $75 that includes counter top and paint.
Nice little country kitchen I'd say. icon_smile.gif

I love your kitchen. I like the fact that you have picture along the top of you cabinets. I don't think I ever have seen that before.

Just a side note. I was born in Syracuse and raised north of Syracuse, in the Central Square area.

Also I just love your name,

Sue aka Marksgirl

I failed to say anything in my message about your kitchen. DUH. I love your curtains and your cupboards. Great kitchen. I've got to get new curtains. They have been up way too long. icon_smile.gif
Thanks for starting this thread. It will be fun.

Hi Sue,
Thanks for liking my kitchen. icon_smile.gif
Ah, how neat. I'm two hours from Syracuse and my son lives in Homer and works in North Syracuse. Been there many times. icon_smile.gif

Hi Susie, TY...I have been working on this kitchen for the last 5 years to get it where it is. I got the mural and the tiles put behind the sink and the stove. It was just plain wall and i didnt like it. Its so much easier to clean w/the tiles up. My husband and his exwife lived here before I came in and it was soooo boring in this house. There was no kinda theme and it was just blah. I have transformed this whole house almost and made it into a home. Ive added color. When i moved in the living room walls that were a mile high almost were solid white..i was like eeww no thanks. I changed it and made it warm.

I love the way you have your cabinet built in the wall to show the dishes. That would be awesome. Just looove the country look.

I have been wanting to do this thread and finally got around to it becomes a great thread.

You have made it very warm and inviting. It is normal to want to make it your own. icon_smile.gif
Great job,

I love the look of all of your kitchens. I would post pics of mine, but I REALLY need to clean it first!! Space is definitely something that I think we all need more of. I am constantly rearranging to try to make it work better. One day I'll get it....

Erika, sounds like you guys are in for some fun! When I moved into this house I changed everything in the kitchen to red and white. It took a while, but my family is always getting me 'red' stuff for my kitchen, so it makes it fun for them too. Besides, great sales on stuff after Christmas and Valentines day!

Anyone want to trade kitchens? Mine is so small...three people and it's crowded. It's so hard to do anything in there. icon_sad.gif

So far everyone has had such nice kitchens.

OK girls, let's get down to brass tacks, and see some lousy kitchens too. I don't have a camera available or I'd show you mine.
