Moving in #9 – DIY: Kitchen #2 Dishwasher and interior

The big work isn’t done yet. The interior requires a lot of work too. But, personally I love decorating the kitchen and putting things into place. Especially here in our kitchen there are no limits!

First, Vincent and Peter installed abuilt-in dishwasher. Well… Improvised a built-in dishwasher. But hey, it totally worked out.

A dishwasher needs water, I present you the connection, the bridge between water and dishwasher: a hose.

I have no idea what the nice golden thing is called but I’m calling it a ‘splitter’, you’ll need it in order to tap the water.

The onion and garlic holder was my little project and that corner isn’t finished yet. Stay tuned for a next DIY and how I made it.

We placed some vinyl on the wood for several reasons.
1. My mother does it too (is it something Asian?)
2. It protects the wood
3. It’s easier to clean
4. In some way I find the thought of placing my glasses and cups on vinyl better than on wood. Especially if they’re still a little moist from washing them.

I choose for simple IKEA storage jars because I dislike most food wrappings. Wrappings have different colors, textures and sizes. That would make your eyes scream for simplicity.

We still have some wrapping and stuff on the shelves. But we’re planning on making a little closet or crate to put in things that can’t be put in jars.
