STILL WORKING IN THE KITCHEN

Morning peeps! The lack of posting this week came from the fact that I was still working in the kitchen.  I managed to finish the doors on the upper cabinets and now I’m moving on to the window treatments..

I found this fabric at Hobby Lobby months ago and it was deeply discounted! I have a little more than seven yards of it and only paid like $24! At the time, I had not a clue what I was going to do with it, but I loved the dusty blue and off-white stripes so I figured it would work somewhere in my home.

I have a double window in my kitchen with a white faux wood blind up (not a good look).

Because I’m going to have a few other painted projects in the room, I plan to install bamboo blinds to add a little warmth to the space. Speaking of other painted projects, I am prepping to paint my kitchen table and chairs

That table has definitely seen better days.  If you notice, I only have three chairs at the table right now which brings me to the chairs in the background.

I’m going to paint these and add some different fabric to the seats.

I’m actually headed to my kitchen now to do some work so I should have an update tomorrow.  Let me share a little side note with you on the projects that I’m doing around here.  I have accumulated so many things during all of my thrifting excursions that I plan to use as much of those items as possible.  I was out in my garage yesterday and was blown away by the amounts of fabric, frames, accessories, etc.. that I have just collecting dust.  I even have paint and primer that I I have never used! This is a low budget makeover and I am so happy about thatSmile

Here is a list of things I still need to do in the kitchen

paint table and chairs

add frames to wall above table and chairs

“make” and hang curtains

Those chairs are going to look great with an update! So many options for colors and fabrics...and it sounds like you'll have a few to choose from in your garage! Janell

Sounds like you have a lot going on and you are accomplishing tasks..having a list is the perfect tool so you can cross things off.

I can't wait to see the table and the chairs painted and I know what you mean about having tons of stuff, but it's great that you have a stock pile of things you can use already
