My White Kitchen

I still dream of owning my dream white kitchen similar to the one you see below. It may take several years before I can make it come true, but that is fine with me. It might take that long to make me like cooking and being in the kitchen as well.


But who knows? If I had a kitchen as nice as this, I might just make it my second bedroom. I love the chartreuse wall tiles and the kitchen countertop table. I envision my kids heading straight for this table once they arrive from school to tell me about their day while eating some brownies I’ve baked! (I think I will like baking better)


As it is, our kitchen is far from the picture above but I am taking tiny steps to make sure we have complete kitchen equipment. So far, we haven’t really availed of my husband’s available payday loans except for big kitchen equipment like the refrigerator and stove. Our Whirlpool microwave oven was a gift from our wedding (we love it).

I would like to buy a toaster, blender, a good (investment) coffee maker and fine dinnerware soon.
