Welcome to our apartment! I figured we'd start in the kitchen. When we first signed the lease on our place, our landlords were still working on the place. It wasn't painted yet or anything. And they didn't tell us anything about it and we didn't think to ask. A week or so after we signed the lease, we stopped by for a look and we shocked by the kitchen walls. The only colored walls in the place, and they painted them this bright, olive green. C was not impressed, and I was pretty shocked. We got over it and I can tolerate it now. There are times it just feels gloomy, as we don't have a window or anything in there, but it's fun too.
Here's the blank wall! No longer blank. This is a photo by Pat Shields, a teacher who passed away a year ago. He was a family friend, and I picked this up at his estate sale.Our blender, toaster and our silverware holder. The toaster doubles as an egg mcmuffin maker. We received it as a wedding present from one of C's coworkers. My mother in law was so intrigued by it that she insisted on coming over soon after we set it up to try out an egg mcmuffin. It makes them fine, but they need some kind of seasoning to taste more exciting.
Bill Scott, a local photographer. He has amazing work and I couldn't resist putting them on my wall. I love how it looks awesome with the clock. My parents bought the clock for me for my birthday a couple of years ago. The bright colors of the frames and the clock look pretty good against the wall. I wasn't sure there was much potential with the wall when we first moved in, but I know better now!
That concludes my first post on our place. Stay tuned next time for the "dining room" and possibly the bathroom.
