Finally, I have the kitchen and breakfast room painted and put back together.
I am really pleased with how it turned out.
Even Hubby likes it, which is definitely a plus.
Here are a few Before and After photos…
I am still trying to figure out what to put above the fireplace.
Instead of just sticking something, anything, up there, I decided to leave it bare, until I decide..
Plus, I’m not sure I like how I have the top of the fireplace decorated, may need to do some tweaking to it.
Other than that, I really love the new look.
Here are some more After photos…
Notice my new curtains??
Well, actually they are repurposed curtains.
I wanted some prim swags, but since I couldn't find any I liked, nor do I have the extra cash to buy them right now, I came up with these by accident!!
You see, My Mom brought me over some tab top curtains she was no longer using.
I had originally thought about hanging them up, then pinning one corner up.
But I didn't like it at all.
Think, Think, Think.
I then noticed a hem, across the bottom of the curtains, humm, I wonder???
So, what I did was, hang them upside down and backwards.
I took the inside tab, pulled it up and put it inside the curtain rod, cut off all the remaining tabs, leaving only the cute buttons, and POOF, prim swags!
I LOVE the way they turned out.
They are even cuter in person, if I do say so myself.
I did the same thing for the curtains above the sink.
Except on these, I had to cut off some of the length and add a curtain rod hem, everything else was done the same way as the door curtains.
So cute! And you sure can’t beat the price…
Okay, now back to the over load of photos!! :)
Well, there you have it, my new lighter and brighter kitchen.
If you have any ideas of what I should hang above my fireplace, I would love to hear, because I’m having a creative block right now. ;)
Also to the ladies who joined in on the envelope swap, yesterday was the mail out dead line.
