Should this stay or should it go? 

I realized today that my last blog entry is 3 weeks old. Oops! I had no idea! I thought.. a week maybe? Time is flying, and not in a good way. Or maybe in a good way, because in 3 more weeks, I will finally have a summer break. Or at least a break, we´ll see whether there´s much summer left by then.

Anyway. What have we been up to? Well, first of all, the house is now officially ours. Yay! Also, the previous owner has finally moved all her things out of the house and we have started to paint all walls white (we´ll get to that in another post). Oh, and we started working on the garden (yeah... we´ll get to that as well).

I would really like to show you some pictures of the progress, but I can´t. You see, I took a gazillion pictures over the last weekend, and then I left my camera at the house. Duh. So that will have to wait.

In the meantime, I´d like to ask you for your opinion. See this thing in the picture above? It sits in our kitchen which on a sidenote is not an acidic yellow anymore. Oh, and ignore all the stuff on top, it´s not ours and it´s gone by now. Back to the thing. It is an old kitchen stove which is unfortunately not working anymore. 

So, should we get rid of it? What do you think? I don´t think it´s very pretty, is it? But then again, it´s old? And you shouldn´t get rid of old things, yes? But it´s not working anyway? And yes we have lots of space in the house but the kitchen is the one room where I´ll take all the space I possibly can get? So should we get rid of it? Do tell.

is there any chance to repair it? if so, i would totally recommend to keep it. if there is no way, than i would use the space for something more useful.

Well the stove itself should be fine but there´s no chimney anymore (and no possibility to re-install one). So it would really only be a decoration item and for this it´s not pretty enough in my opinion...

I would save the upper wall tiles to reuse them, and get rid of the rest ;)

raus damit, es gibt schönere alte dinge. wenn er nicht mehr funktioniert und auch nie mehr wird, nimmt er dir nur platz weg. gefällt dir noch etwas anderes an ihm als nur das alter?

Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm... Is it possible to transfer it to a sheltered area in the garden as a winter warmer or something?

Drin lassen und ihn auf jeden Fall als Dekoelement nutzten für z.B. frische kräuter oder einen Eisenkorb mit obst draufstellen ♥

Out it should go! Once it's gone you will never miss it. Instead you will have extra space to fill with other more important things - like things that work and are beautiful.

I would get rid of it if it doesn't work and you don't like it. You can never have too much space in a kitchen :) Congrats on the house being officially yours!

I think it's charming and should stay. But then again, you have to like looking at it. And if you don't think it's pretty - take it out.

I'd say the same as Katja... gosh this yellow with the honey wooden floor was awful... it's amazing how a color on the wall can change a room. good job on the white !
