Disclosure: This is a sponsored post by IKEA but all opinions are my own.
I am a bit surprised when I get the email from IKEA, asking me to work on another collaboration project, but why not? It has been more than two years since I updated the progress of our kitchen renovation after we moved in, and here it goes, IKEA project #5, kitchen upgrade 2015.
Well, we have added some new pieces for the counter-bar. I tried to add some decoration pieces such as flowers and plants to make the milk powder container looked nicer. My final goal of this counter-bar is to make it same height with the kitchen counter-top which will look like a kitchen island.
With helper around, we cooked almost everyday. Our daily breakfast are breads with eggs and our eggs run out very fast. Those eggs looked happier to sit on the 2-tiers serving stand from IKEA, aren’t them? Sometimes I also put my cupcakes on the serving stand to serve our guests, of course I would wash it first before putting the cupcakes. Onions and garlics are put inside the jar without lid, the jar size just nice for them. A new RIMFORSA knide holder which is made by bamboo materials helps to line up Daddy’s knifes properly. The rest still look pretty much the same except we have got a new set of cups.
Here’s how it looks all together.
Almost all of our eating cutlery are bought from IKEA and … I liked the orange and green place mats, I thought they matched each other.
Daddy Kenji planned to plant some flowers in these RIMFORSA containers which looked like test tubes. I liked the color tone and design of IKEA new RIMFORSA series, they display kitchen stuffs in beautiful style.
We also added a notice board near the window corner and I have made some calendars for it. I always wanted to bring in some greenery to our living area, despite of staying in a concrete jungle. Growing some plants and herbs by the window corner to make it look like a little garden.
We installed a new set of curtains to hide the ugly power points (photo in the left is shelves with curtain closed and photo at the right is shelves with curtain open). All the food storage jars and containers were bought from IKEA which included both the glasses and plastic materials.
The other side facing the open shelves is the refrigerator and Zaanse helped us to decorate the refrigerator with some IKEA magnets and her baby photos.
Thanks to my dear girl ~
Now these are the photos of baby Zaanse and I shall print more photos of baby Xavy as well!
Cinnamon and some spices inside the magnetic containers which is pretty accessible. Of course, we will reserve one for Zaanse to showcase her cars collection.
How simple to get more space, just installed a spice jar rack inside our kitchen cabinet to put all the spices and salts etc. Daddy always got some crazy ideas, but this one is quite helpful.
Besides of the spice jar rack, we also mounted a rail onto the cabinet door under the sink. This is where we hang our kitchen towels.
So, there you have it and here’s the get the look board :
