Show Us Your... Kitchen & Dinning Room

I missed last week's dinning room post, so this week I'm posting a combined dinning room and kitchen door. In a way it makes sense we do have a combined dinning room and kitchen anyways. To start with this is the view when you walk in from the carport.
Entering From the Carport
The table and chairs are actually from my parents' house from when I grew up. They used to be the same color until the boy wanted to stain the table. The goal would be to eventually stain the chairs to match. Here's the view from a slightly different angle. (This is looking in from the living room.)
View to the Backyard
This let's you see the view into to the backyard. You can also see my mini-office set-up and off to the left is the laundry. And here's the other half of the room, the official kitchen.
The curtains over the window were left by the prior owner. While the kind of match the blue walls (which I love!), I would eventually like to replace them. As you saw in the previous pictures, the left side of the kitchen counter could be used as some type of bar, but we would need bar stools to take full advantage. Off the the right of this view is the way to the bedrooms, but its always where the pantry is.
I just thought it would be fun to share some of the randomness and disorganization that's in the current pantry. The shelf at the bottom, as you might expect in a kitchen, are all different types of cookbooks.

If you're here from Kelly's Korner, thanks for stopping by! And if you're looking for more kitchen tours, but sure to head over to Kelly's Korner to check them out.



  1. Love the new stain on that dining table! It's going to look super nice when the chairs get stained. It will look like a new set. Good job ;)


  2. I'm stopping by via Kelly's Korner.
    You have a wonderful room to entertain and enjoy delicious meals.
    I'm having such a great time visiting the SUYL participants' dining rooms. There's so many creative people! I'm definitely take lots of notes!
    I mentioned to my husband that I would love a pantry closet in our next home. Once you've had one you can't go without it!
