Built-in bookcase for cookbooks! I just want built in bookcases in every room for books! I'll carry a book from one room to another and have a dedicated shelf for my current read. Although, having dedicated space for cookbooks is smart, too.
Kitchen: exposed wood beam, similar color (Kitchen and living room only). Built ins, living room, same color as beams. Off white cabinets Light color granite Island, same color as wood beams and built ins Crown molding to bottom only -SS
Great idea: paint the inside of kitchen cabinet doors with chalkboard paint. Now if I were reeeally organized, I would put chalk board pain inside the pantry and cupboard doors and use it to keep an inventory.
