About Time: Kitchen Update

This has been a long time coming. Looong time coming. Too long. This is proof of how willing we are to live with imperfection and convenience for the sake of a little laziness and a little busyness. This is also proof that, eventually we'll get to it.


Believe it or not. Those are handles adorning our cabinets. 

In the end, despite considering colourful options, despite procrastinating because we couldn't make a choice, in the end, we stopped by the big orange box and picked up the one we liked the best among their selection. It's nothing incredibly special, but it's classic with a bit of a swoop to it. These ones, to be exact:

It's weird, having pulls. Every so often, I find myself reaching for a fork, our preferred method of opening the doors after our tape fell off, or opening two doors in order to open one. I definitely still open the sink drawer from the bottom with my foot.

It will take a while to adjust to normal living again, right? Good thing the kitty approves.

  5. Thanks! Keep in mind though... this was pretty much the only one we found at HD that we truly liked. We did also find some knobs for our closet, so you might have some luck. Definitely check them out though!
