Three on Thursday - kitchen progress

Last week we added three things to the kitchen in the new house:

1. a stove.
Still to be connected to a gas bottle that we haven't bought yet. Baby steps...

2. our dining room table.
One of the two pieces of furniture we moved with us from The Netherlands. It used to be my parents' and though I try to keep myself from attaching emotional meaning to inanimate objects, it makes me so happy to see it here.

3. a kitchen cupboard.
We were browsing furniture, not really planning on buying something yet, but we both fell in love with this cupboard. It was marked down to under half it's original price, so we decided to buy it immediately. I love how the tone of the wood and the style matches our table perfectly.

Bonus list:
Three things still on the need-to-buy list for the kitchen: chairs for the table, fridge, a ceiling.

  1. A ceiling--I love that that's on your need-to-buy list! Beautiful furniture...I'd probably attach to it, too... Lovely.

    1. Ha, yes. I ever so carefully photographed around it, but we don't have a ceiling yet. Having trouble to find the right material (i.e. nice looking and not too hard to install) here on the island.

    1. It's a bit of a frustration, yes. But we think we're going to order some material in Holland and have it shipped here, so I hope it will be a laughing matter, or at least a funny anecdote for us soon.

    1. Exactly! We've done without ceilings before, so it's not really a big deal. It's just that we thought it would be an easy job (since we have so much experience with it), but we're just not able to find the right material.
