We moved it out of the living room so we could replace it with the glass door shelf that was in the bedroom we turned into a dining room.
After, the shelf is on the west wall instead of the south wall, as the cupboard was:
All of this moving was actually done in order to get the hoosier moved out of the kitchen. I was willing to try to sell it, but Larry didn't want to, which really pleases me, because I was the one who insisted on getting a cupboard like this. I liked the ones with chipped paint, so this was our compromise.
Here it is, in its new home in the dining room. It's pretty crowded. I thought we would have to move the sewing machine with the TV on it, and we may, but for now, it looks better than I thought it would. Oh, I just noticed the shelf on the basket of towels on the chair on the left that hasn't been put up yet.
So, here is the temporary home for Ashley's cupboard. We are planning on putting the silver shelf in the computer room, which is turning into a play room for our grandson.
I scooted the big shelf over to about where the end of the 6 feet of cupboard/counter space will be with the open shelves above it. I am excited that there will be a microwave above the stove instead of in this area.
It's going to be fun experiencing the same amount of room we'll have for our table when it's all done. It's almost tempting to just have the main work area get the new cupboards, but I really need more counter space, and it's going to be awesome when it's done.
By the way, the cupboards in this area, which is U shaped, will have doors on them, and I hope to not fill them so full the doors don't stay closed. LOL The door on the other side of the baby gate leads to the dining room. There is a restroom behind the stove, so the rooms couldn't be made into one.
I want to thank those of you who have made comments and suggestions on my kitchen posts. I have been spending lots of time reading Consumer Reports and shopping to figure out what appliances to get. We have picked out a side by side Energy Star refrigerator that won't stick out as far into the room as others. We are planning to go ahead and switch from electric to gas with a convection oven. We can't afford the duel fuel ones. We're pretty sure we know which range and dishwasher we want, and I am going back and forth between 3 different microwave ovens.
I hope to do some blog reading the next few days, and see what you are all up to. Wow, it's February! Before the month is over, I hope to get some lettuce and such planted. I have so much I'm thankful to God for, and am very excited for spring to get here.
