Kitchen Tour

What a busy day today was!  I cleaned out my refrigerator and freezer today.  With that came a through cleaning of the kitchen as well!  So, since my kitchen is all sparkling clean,  I’ve decided  to join the Heart of the Home Party and show you my kitchen again.  I have featured it once before here on my blog and wasn’t really going to do it again but  since I have made some changes since that post, why not?  It’s time for an updated peek!

When you enter in my kitchen from either the basement, hallway, den, or office, you are in a small foyer area that we have put up a coat rack and I recently added this table for mail and junk.

Looking into the kitchen from that foyer area this is what you see.

To the left is a built in desk I converted to a bar, yeah, I still need to paint that last chair black too!

Let’s move closer into the kitchen now.

What’s that there?  No, not the cute checked pumpkin I found at Target after seeing it in all my bloggy friends homes, look again.

That’s right, I’m talking about those yummy chocolate chip cookies!  I baked them just for you, because I knew you ‘d want some while you enjoyed the rest of the tour.

Other then my very large island, I really have limited  counter space in my kitchen.

This area in between my refrigerator and oven leads to the dining room.  It also is where my pantry is located behind the oven.

For those of you that follow regularly can you tell I’ve been decluttering some.

This is command central here!

Let move over towards the kitchen table now.

I am so thankful for this built china cabinet.  I had one in my old house too but it was in the dining room.  This is why I have only recently wanted to buy one for my dining room.  Now I have two china cabinets.  Woohoo!

I bought this little side table a few years ago from Ross.  Love that store!

Well there you have it!   But wait, for those of you who may have wondered whats behind the double doors, I’ll give you a sneak peek if you promise to overlook the mess.
Yep, that’s my laundry room, smack dab in the middle of my kitchen.  It is not totally a closet laundry room but set back somewhat inside.  It’s just enough for me to pile up loads of laundry on the floor inside, which is why your getting a very limited peek.  LOL!

I hope you enjoyed your tour of the heart of our home.  Be sure and visit Sheila at Note Songs for more tours of other beautiful kitchens full of inspiration.
Thanks for visiting today!

  1. Sure did enjoy my tour. I enjoyed seeing it the second time around, I missed a few things the first time:) It is all lovely and very warm and welcoming Mary! I took a cookie and a shot of tequila to go………………….


  2. Hi Mary! I don't think I have ever taken the full tour of your kitchen and I just love it! I miss my white cabinets so much and I absolutely love your built-in china cabinet! You have created a very warm and welcoming space and I wish I could really come over and have one of those cookies…or 2…or 4…! 🙂


  3. Hi Mary!

    I loved the cookie…I am on a diet though, so I only took one! 😀

    Your kitchen is beautiful…I love white cabinetry! I also loved your built-in cabinets and also having the laundry room right in the kitchen…I think it would be great to have it right there as I work in the kitchen!

    Hugs, Carolyn ~ Cottage Sunshine


  4. The cookies look delicious. Your kitchen is charming and fresh looking. Love the little handprint tiles. I hope you'll drop by Atticmag and see our kitchens – it's a three for one!



  5. G'eve Mary ~ I love your whites … you'd better hide those cookies, cause I don't share well! Chuckle.

    Your kitchen is just lovely, your accents are perfect … LOVE the table from Ross.

    Have a beautiful eve ~
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon


  6. Oh, Mary! Your kitchen is gorgeous! I love the white and brightness of it and the huge island in the middle. I'm in love and a bit jealous of your gorgeous built in china cabinet! 🙂 Your walls are lovely! That little table you got from Ross is so pretty!! Thank you so much, Mary, from the bottom of my heart for joining my party.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉


  7. Mary, the space is so grand and cozy at the same time! I love all your touches and remember that great basket holding your wine from another post! If I had one of those cookies, I just might sneak that basket right out the door! 🙂 I am envious of the laundry room off the kitchen! The two places that I spend most of my time, should be side by side, so that I can multi-task! My laundry room is down stairs in the basement! Of course, I might find an excuse not to do it, even if it were off my kitchen! thanks for sharing! Coming over from Note Song! three pixie lane


  8. Hi Mary, I am still visiting kitchens and I am so glad I visited yours. I love the space you have and the built in cabinet is awesome. You have decorated the heart of your home just gorgeous. I also love the table from Ross. It is all perfectly lovely.

    Hugs, Jeanne
