My sunny kitchen has been getting on my nerves lately. Not only is it doing double duty as my furniture painting studio (it has the best light and the most space in the house), but everything about it is getting a little tired.
I love the color, Light Blue by Benjamin Moore. Of course, I do because I picked it. But the original 1960s cabinets are falling apart, the slate counters look great when oiled, but when they aren’t look a bit dry and water stained. The oven, well, a double oven and a hob would be fantastic. I know, I’ll stop my moaning and instead of showing you photos of my current kitchen, shall we day dream together?
If a kitchen could drop out of the sky (a la the Ikea ads), I would love the following:
White cabinets like Layla and Kevin’s of the Lettered Cottage. They were the first blog I followed:

I would love, love, love a rustic, reclaimed farm table. I’m dropping a huge hint to my hubby here. Isn’t this one from White Flower Farmhouse beautiful?

I love the idea of a huge chalk board for the boys to create masterpieces on, not to mention space for me to write all my “to do” lists (and there are many):
I also love that massive, rustic island and the glass pendants are gorgeous.
A gorgeous range and white subway tiles, like the one featured in House and Home:

Glass cupboards and a farmer’s sink:

A pantry that I could fill to the brim with all the snacks and sippy cups that currently topple out and fall on my head! And finally, a cozy window seat to cuddle up on with my boys or to sit and sip afternoon tea while reading or looking at design magazines:
It would have lots and lots of over stuffed and homemade pillows:
So that currently is my dream kitchen. I have a feeling that it isn’t going to drop from the ceiling anytime soon and my kitchen will still be filled with furniture waiting to be painted. But I thought you and I could day dream about what it would look like if it did!
