So when I was apartment hunting and walked into the kitchen of my current apartment, it was like angels all began singing in unison, all the suns rays came filtering magnificently through the kitchen windows, and a multitude of Julian Casablancas cyborgs began waltzing across the countertops.
It's an ENORMOUS kitchen, with a bounty of natural light and beautiful hardwood floors. My only complaint is the lack of counter and cupboard space, but everything else kind of makes up for it.
And it's BECAUSE it's such a wonderful space that it sort of dawned on me a couple weeks ago that I really should be treating it better than I have been, and that it could use a little bit of TLC. So I decided to paint it and track down some curtains--the windows are horribly filthy, and I don't really have a way of cleaning them, so I figured I could at least block some of the view.
So join me, on a tour of my newly-painted kitchen, so that you may burn with envy.

Interestingly, most of my kitchen furniture was donated to me... The rack with my cookbooks sitting next to my stove and the wine rack/stand next to my fridge were both handed down to me from an ex-. My mom gave me the kitchen table. And the computer was donated to me from a friend at the time.

Back in my college days, I decided--with the encouragement of one of my sisters--that I should decorate my kitchen with only ugly things. So I would buy some of the most hideous salt shakers and other kitchen paraphernalia that I possibly could. Later, this idea transformed some, and I now decorate it with as many unrelated and campy decorations as possible. For example:

And there you have it. Thank you for joining me today on a tour of my kitchen. Veganmofo, veganmofo, veganmofo.
