We’re getting there

I just had to post a picture of my cookbooks, I’m so thrilled with how they look.  Originally there had been a door over this cupboard, but it lifted up instead of opening out from the center.  It was a heavy door so it was tricky to try and open it with one hand and get out or put anything in with the other hand.  With the redo, I decided to have any doors left off and leave an open shelf.  I wanted “open and airy” so the original plan was to put my prize soup tureen up there with nothing else.  However, the cord from the lamp hanging over the sink (isn’t that a great lamp? Thank you Rejuvenation…) could not be placed anywhere else, and I didn’t want it suspended behind my tureen.  Also, I decided I didn’t want to put the cheap shelves back above the washer and dryer where I had originally stored the cookbooks so necessity won out in the end.  I’m happy with it.  It looks warm and homey and with a nifty vintage(ish) step stool they should still be pretty accessible.   You can also see how the beadboard backsplash is coming along.
