I have a new convenience in my kitchen that my husband just finished for me. He wired three undercounter lights to an outlet we had our builder install over the microwave. This outlet is on a switch on the backsplash, next to the range. All I have to do is flip one switch to get light on all the counters! My husband is my hero!
This is my kitchen with the three undercounter lights turned on.
Do you see the switch just to the right of the range? No? I don't either. It blends into the subway tile in this picture. Here, I'll point it out . . .
There it is. Oh, this is so wonderful for a woman who likes lots of light in her kitchen. One flip of the switch and I have it!
On another note, I did a quick project in my laundry room that really added a fun pop of color. I hung some 70s framed tiles that my parents used to have hanging in their vacation home. My Dad just recently sent them to me.
The laundry room is just off the kitchen and doesn't look very pretty but I keep the door open during the day because I like the light from the window. With these framed tiles I can keep the colorful theme from my breakfast room on the other side of the kitchen. I blogged about my breakfast room here.
Now the laundry room looks pretty and adds to the colorful theme in the kitchen.
So what do you think about my 70s, framed tiles?
