I couldn't resist - one more photo, which I forgot to post yesterday:
It's the inside of the hoosier! The photo on the left is where pots and pans were previously stored, as well as a wire cooling rack shelf. The upper right is the utensil drawer, now home to my sewing scissors (and soon my thread), and the bottom right photo is of the upper left cabinet. The tin was my mothers, and holds the odds and ends of a desk, like tape and random cords and thumb drives and one postcard.
In other news, I've decided to keep the "red stuff" hanging, thanks to your input. I might adjust the height of the lanterns slightly... but this corner of the living room is good to go!
