Moving. So many feelings wrapped up in that tiny verb. On the one hand, I am moving into a much bigger place in a much better location… I didn’t even know I lived in Coal Harbour until Bonnie came over to see the place and tell me. Let’s just say I am geographically-challenged and have spent too many years in East Vancouver. The building is beautiful – built in 1909 and while the inside needs some lovin’, the bones are amazing. On the other hand, however, comes that less fun part of moving. I have to somehow get all my things there and set up, in between the minor craziness of everyday life. It’s a whole new project for sure, and one that will be sure to bring on a host of new upholstery projects… and space to keep them!
One of the first projects I am tackling is building a kitchen nook. I am one of those people that tends to live in my kitchen. I hang out there. I eat there. I cook there. I hang out there. Rinse. Repeat. It also helps that my new kitchen is hilariously large (with small apartment-size appliances, weirdly). Here’s what I’m thinking of:
I really like the style of how these benches are built into the wall. I’m pretty sure I could recreate this myself, but I would want to change up the fabric for sure – I like cheery colours in a kitchen.
