Bossy’s mom’s kitchen.
Bossy has featured this modest yet magical room before.
Recently Bossy’s mom decided to give her kitchen a little facelift, and so the first thing she did was hire her two favorite painters, where hire equals I brought your asses into this world and I can take you out!
And then Bossy’s mom buggered off to Ikea where she bought the one piece of kitchen cabinetry which will serve as an extra work station, especially when preparing homemade pasta, because of course preparing homemade pasta was on the New Year’s resolution list.
Bossy will keep you posted.

I like it. It was very kind of her two favorite kids to offer to help. 😉

That is a lovely sunshiney corner now! Love the little door above on the left… is it an antique medicine cabinet?
corrie saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:09 am
P.S. Yes Maria, very kind! Also kind of her two favorite kids not to point out the expansive work area totally suitable and available for pasta prep which is featured in the foreground of the last pic!

Are Bossy’s Mom’s Kids for hire? In my state of the union address I stated the First Lady (me) needed painters!

Good job. Early American Julia Child.

Oh, have mercy — I love the ceiling!

I think I need to hire Bossy’s Mom to redesign my pit of a kitchen….
Debbie in GA saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 11:26 am
Oh, Bossy’s mom, I am LOVING that kitchen! (especially the floor)

Bossy’s Mom WRITES ON HER FRIGE!!! How does Bossy’s Mom accomplish this feat without ruining the finish? Dry Erase Markers? Crayola Water Solubles?
I MUST KNOW THE SECRET BOSSY’S MOM!!!
BossysMom saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 12:34 pm
tuli….didn’t care about ruining the finish….but the update is:
I just painted over the whole thing with a primer then appliance paint. Totally brilliant outcome. It was fast and easy, I fully recommend it….

Dear Bossy and Bossy’s Mom: Please make my kitchen cute and fabulous, too. Thanks. Love, Vuboq.

What a darling kitchen! And I LOVE the prep table from Ikea. What is the thing right above the table that appears to be holding kitchen staples and where can I get one of those?
Cactus Petunia saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 3:10 pm
Bossy’s Mom is an inspiration!
Lizzy saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 3:47 pm
Bossy’s mom? Will you marry me and do something with my 1950’s metal kitchen cabinets? Thank you, and “I do”.
reen saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 4:25 pm
Nice job, indentured Bossy siblings! I adore this kitchen.
Sallie (FullTime-Life) saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 5:05 pm
OK maybe Bossy’s mom should NOT go on Bossy’s roadtrip. Because in that kitchen I’m sure she will be happy to stay home and make pasta sauce. Nice job
Marnie saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 6:56 pm
What happened to the writing on the fridge? Someone might forget something now!
Lynn in Tucson saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 9:03 pm
Homemade pasta! Can I invite you to my flickr pages to see what we’ve been up to? (Flickr ID is unpastis.)
Cupcake Murphy saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:11 pm
I come here for the wit and wisdom primarily although I must admit the aesthetics are tip top. Bossy’s mom’s kitchen exudes warmth and makes me want to retile my floor.
Susan saysJanuary 29, 2010 at 10:59 pm
Everything looks so clean!
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 12:45 am
I love Bossy’s Mom (even though I’ve never met her) and hope she and Bossy can come visit here sometime. As in this summer. Or tomorrow. Or maybe even yesterday.
p.s. If Kevin Bacon happens to be hitchhiking on I’95 South as you’re passing by, by all means pick him up.
tina de luxe saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 6:46 am
Oh yes, that’s a fabulous room, so inviting. I love the Ikea Vaerde furniture, my kitchen is just too small for it.
And I really adore that waist-high wooden stuff (don’t even know what it might be called) “you Americans” like to have on your walls, that’s so cosy.
KG saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 1:37 pm
As much as Ikea can cause a lot of grumping and groaning, (who can read these Swedish directions?) They offer such delightful pieces! I did my whole kitchen with Ikea. It’s over on my blog right now.
Meg at the Members Lounge saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 1:42 pm
I would love to play life-size checkers in Bossy’s Mom’s kitchen!
AnnP saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 2:20 pm
I love her kitchen.
Cindy Z saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 4:10 pm
Love Bossys mom’s kitchen!
me-shell saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 9:22 pm
um…I can’t look at the kitchen, I am mesmerized by Bossy’s brother’s shiny white shoes!! 🙂
Kelley saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 10:15 pm
Do you think she will let me come and live in her kitchen? I love it THAT much.
Oh and I can totally make homemade pasta.
Maria saysJanuary 30, 2010 at 10:20 pm
This is really really odd, because bossy’s mom’s kitchen is MY kitchen. Or, really, it WILL be when I get my floor done. And bossy’s mom gave me a brilliant idea. I want my fridge to be a COLOR , like a retro one, totally. But I can’t afford this totally retro fridge because GAH, indeed.
And then bossy’s mom said “Appliance paint” and then my mind went crazy and I’m thinking “WHY didn’t I think of that sooner!?”
I love bossy.

Why do mothers always say they can take us out of the world?
BossysMom saysJanuary 31, 2010 at 12:05 pm
I never say that…honest.
I say “you ARE out of this world” amen.
