I used a bookcase to house cookbooks, yearbooks and all sorts of non-books. A metal kitchen shelf was stashed (sideways) into a narrow space between the tiny stove and the refrigerator whose average-sized door still had too much girth to open fully.
There were posters on the ceiling of my favorite children's books and granny's aqua colored tea-cart camped out under a board that the mister turned into a makeshift counter. It truly was a tint kitchen.
With all this space and newness, we have had to figure out how to keep the kitsch without the crazy clutter. It wasn't too difficult. The first thing we did was install the happy light fixture that was our first housewarming gift. Next, mister built a shelf for our little people complete with hooks to keep our wee little lights in order.
Topo Chico water bottle (picked up in Austin while on the BIG road trip) into a soap dispenser and we were good to go.
Now, all we need is a working oven. Sigh.
