Wasted Space

Can I just tell you how much I hate
the space above my kitchen cabinets?
It's wasted space.
Why not extend them all the way to the ceiling?
Don't get me wrong.
I love my cabinets.
I would love them even more if they were
painted and glazed...in the future, my friends.
I just don't love the space between the top of the cabinets and the ceiling.
The reason:
It is so hard to accessorize all that open air.
Nothing, looks bare.
Too much, looks cluttered.
I have been on the hunt for simple additions for the space,
and I came across this "S"
at Marshall's on clearance ($10.00).
Score.
The color was all wrong.
Solution:
Spray paint.
Easy.
The solution.
Not me.
I'm not easy.
I love easy.

I love the space between my cabinets and ceiling! I just started decorating it. Of, course, I have no idea what I'm going to do with it when the holidays are over???

Love the S and the style of it. My kitchen cabinet top is too close to the ceiling and makes it hard to put stuff up there.

I'm so with you on making the cabinets go to the ceiling! My space is not that much and is just wasted space!

and I bet you are easy...it's OK...admit it...we're all friends here

I'm with Cindy- I wish you could come decorate my house! Our cabinets actually do go up to the ceiling, but that's because the ceiling isn't very high...I agree though, that is the toughest part to decorate! I've helped my mom with hers.
Good work with the S!

Your S looks great with your friendly fowl candlesticks. La
