It always seems, though, that no matter how many cookie cutters you have, there is always one that you do not have, and there are always more to add to the collection.
I operate my business out of my inspected home kitchen, so it certainly isn't equipped with the storage and space of a bakery kitchen, so I've been making some attempts at maximizing the space that I'm in and really making it my own.
The kitchen is completely functional, but this is the first time in my life that I actually had any control over what I could do with it. Up until last year, when we made the dive into home ownership, I have always just worked with what I had. My first oven in my first apartment was Hells fire - all I had to do was set it at 350*F and it would shoot straight up to 500*F. Pretty sure I learned that the hard way. And my second apartment had leaky kitchen cupboards - figure that one out.
I spend most of my days in this room - sometimes 12+ hours a day, mostly all at once. I felt it was only fitting to give the kitchen a little freshening up. The cupboards, specifically. It's hard to see from the photo, but many of them have started to wear. The wood laminate on the cupboards closest to the sink have peeled and warped, so we had to remove the laminate entirely.
I also got sucked into the Ikea website - it was my first time on there, actually. I ordered up some reasonably priced storage cabinets for the dining room, as the plastic storage shelves I have now are open, warped, and starting to buckle from all of the weight from packaging materials. It'll be nice to have storage with doors that I can close and the packaging mess instantly disappears.
Enough yammering, though - I should get back to "not working" for a change. Though blogging doesn't feel much like work.
