I'd like to have open shelves for my cute dishes. About the only thing I'd like salvaged from my kitchen are these two vintage remnants. The oven hood and the waste disposal, which both need industrial cleaning.
Since I can't rip out the cupboards, I'd like to paint them white. Except that I am too lazy. Not happening. I would like to hang a curtain to hide the kitchen. This weekend I was bothered by the square opening between the cupboard and the counter. (I know, I can obsess about the weirdest things.) So I made the decision to close the kitchen off a little from view by hanging a painting there.
My landing strip is nicely hidden behind the painting.
The wall I'd like to tear down has a recess in it, where the murphy bed used to be. I've thought of using this area for my office or for my entertainment center, but the apartment has such a small amount of outlets, and they are not conveniently located. I also thought of putting a built-in bench and lots of pillows, Moroccan style there. For now I just use it as a storage area for my paintings.
