T. recently picked up a fish-eye lense for a project he’s working on, and while I initially scoffed at it I’m a little obsessed with using it now. It really came in handy when I wanted to take pictures of our kitchen re-arrange that happened last night.
Not a big project, but one that made lots of impact on the flow and feel of the room – we moved the butcher block cart from in front of the blackboard-painted door (next to the fridge) to it’s new home in front of the door into the dining room. Yes, this means we can no longer use that door, but honestly, it’s not that big of a deal. We really only eat in the dining room when we have guests over, and it’s not that big of a trek to go through the foyer into the living room (and then into the dining room if we wish.) Also, the cart is on wheels, so easy to move if needed. But it has opened up the main entrance of the room so much, and allowed us easier access to the closet behind the blackboard door, which means we have a lot more usable storage.
As you can tell, I’m a fan of the new set up, but T.’s still on the fence, mainly because he doesn’t love the fact that we now have a blocked off door. So I ask all of you lovely readers – is it weird to not have a direct connection between dining room and kitchen but instead to carry food through the foyer and living room to get it into the dining room?
