new cutting boards & a kitchen update
One of my favorite stores, Artilleriet, recently had my most wanted oak cutting boards on sale and I took it as a sign from the online shopping Gods that then was the time to order a couple for myself. I bought the smoked oak ones but they're not nearly as dark in person as the online photos, which is still ok and I love them anyways.
Also if you've been following me since 2013 or before you might remember the big kitchen renovation we did to this house that used to be a rental. We never did decide on a backsplash for the kitchen walls. Tile, glass, stainless steel, concrete...for one reason or another we've decided none were quite right for us. For the past few months though I've had it in my mind that I must find some solution, something smooth and easy to clean that will keep food residue or water off the walls.
One more mention is our kitchen pulls, a progress we've made since the reno when originally we wanted wish buttons the the carpenter installed some that didn't work well, so Superfront to the rescue! These holy wafer pulls are perfect because they're minimal and integrate subtly with the cabinets and countries but are also easy to grip. I wonder at times if I should have ordered the brass instead but I still like that they blend in with the other white elements.
I'm still trying to make a commitment but in the coming weeks I'll be sharing some considerations and the process to completion!
