the kitchen.

This weekend Justin and I worked on some projects around the house. Yea, I'm still working on the Master bedroom just so you know. But as for now, here is what we did in the kitchen. I've had these letter things I got at Hobby Lobby for 40% off so they were like $9 and oh so fun, and I finally got around to putting them up.
Secondly, I updated a blank wall that screamed fro attention in the kitchen as well. The people before us had a hutch there, but as we cannot afford a nice big hutch I had to think of another alternative.

Kay, so I'm not loving the cart/trash can setup under the shelves. I'm trying to think of something else to do there, like a console table or something...not sure where the trash can would go, but trash cans are so icky, yet so convienent. But, on the bright side, I'm LOVING my shelves, you do not even know how much more space I have now in my kitchen because of those puppies. I love IKEA! Thanks Just for putting them up for me! :)
