First things first, here’s the above the stove cabinet we’ve turned into the birthday cabinet. Ignore the horrible wall. We removed the old paint but never painted over, probably because the cabinet was so unaccessible.
On Day 3 we had our second day of kitchen cleaning. I tackled the area we call “the gnome’s nook”. It’s our breakfast nook, but there are really too many of us to eat comfortably in there, so instead it houses the buffet/hutch, art shelf, and microwave and stand. You can fit a lot of junk in a breakfast nook.
