Baking corner {One Room Challenge} week one

One Room Challenge? Yes, here we go again!
This time I am working indoor and on a small scale,
unlike my Spring ORC where I worked on my outdoor dining area,
it turned out great and we are still enjoying it!
This fall I would like to set up a baking corner in the kitchen, 
I love baking as you can see in my French patisserie classes!
A few years ago, I did a little improvement,
where it went from this to this:

which at the time was great,
but then I worked super hard on updating the cabinets:
making them taller and painting them white.

We completed the look by adding a marble back splash after losing our microwave
(all of this happened slowly, over many months,
even many years, far away from the concept of ORC!)

But that corner stayed the same,
and now it is time for change.
And with the schedule of the ORC,
it will/should be ready before Thanksgiving!
Nobody needs a messy kitchen at that time of the year...
Here is the results of this Spring One Room Challenge:
