I have never been able to get our kitchen to look cute. I have a lot of food storage that I rotate through frequently and haven't been able to find a storage method that doesn't take over the eating area. So after some fun internet browsing, I decided what we really need are built in benches. I can store my long term storage, like wheat and rice in them, along with bulkier items like my flour bins, plus it adds a lot more seating. Awesome!
I am determined to build these once I'm done being pregnant (and come up with the money-minor detail)
Just one more thing to add to the list...after we replace the roof, of course.
