We’ve had the kitchen table and chairs for close to fifteen years. About 2 years ago I refinished the table to a dark stain. I’m still waiting for inspiration on what to do with the chairs.
Moving on around the kitchen is the microwave and fridge. The storage above the microwave is only accessible by ladder or chair, good balance and maybe even some counter aerobics! Good thing I don’t use those items everyday!
We even squeezed in a sliver of space for my cookbooks.
