First Things First

Ok, so we made it back from vacation and it actually was really great.  We had a nice relaxing time.  Now that that is done, on to the really important stuff.  Time to get our main floor design completed.  We live in a small condo townhouse.  It is 2 stories with a basement which we just finished last year to be a family room/playroom and I love it!  Now, the issue is our main floor living space, entryway and eat-in kitchen.  Here are a few shots of our kitchen as this is the area that will change the most. 

The wall beside the fridge will be removed or at least made no deeper than the fridge.  It is our powder room which will be reconfigured in order to open up the space.
As you can see, we really lack storage.

This is our attempt at adding more storage.  I love this pantry by the way, which I found on Kijiji for $140
This is our eating area, it too is small, but maybe it will work better once the kitchen is redesigned?!

We had thought about upgrading to a bigger house, but we would really like to try and make this house work for a few more years. So, we had a designer come to our house and do a consultation, it was really great to get his opinion on where we should put our money as we don't want to over renovate.  He is going to do a floor plan for our entire main floor, I can't wait to see what his vision is, it is so great to get someone else's perspective, let alone a professional.  Hopefully that will happen in the next few weeks and in the meantime I hope to get started on some of my smaller projects, like my starburst mirror that I have been wanting to make.  I'll keep you updated on the progress.
