Our kitchen is awful so very dated and in need of a complete overhaul, I think it’s almost as old as me and I am starting to feel a little past my best! The sink has a bucket underneath as the pipes leak and the cabinets are so old if we wait much longer they will be retro chic.
I think this is why I have little inclination to be creative in the kitchen; it’s my least favourite room of the house. Well thankfully matters have improved considerably now I have a beautiful focal point to the room.
My new gorgeous rustic oak fruit bowl from Furniture Plus Online is quite something. It is very eye catching; I love the rustic wood, my eyes are drawn to it. Even the boys are keen to go and help themselves to more fruit as they like the fruit bowl so much. Which is something that pleases me no end, as pushing fruit down them is often a battle normally! I sit the bowl on the table when we play afternoon board games and they happily munch away on apples and satsuma’s.
Not only is it visually appealing it is also highly practical, it’s a decent size and the inbuilt handles help move it easily around the room. The only problem I have now I have visited Furniture Plus Online is that I could easily write a giant wish list of other items I would like to add to my house. Thankfully they seem to have some decent sale items at the moment, so it might work out okay for the next 72 hours especially!
Hubbie practically has cobwebs growing in his wallet, so I need to thoroughly convince him to let me spend on anything. But having fallen for the fruit bowl too I have a feeling he will come round to my next set of purchases. I want to develop the rustic wood theme throughout my house; it looks so much more authentic.
