Good day peeps! So um yeah, I’m talking about my kitchen this week. Wait, before you click off of the page, I need your help with a few things.
I need a rug. Do you like rugs in kitchens? I do. I have one, but I’m not sure if the size is good. I’ll show you this week and show you some examples of kitchens that have rugs in them that I’m smitten with.
Another thing that’s on my list to finalize is seating. Yes, I have those bistro chairs that I painted turquoise, but I really want a bench seat in my kitchen, too. I’ve seen benches with round tables, but are they functional? I found this bench at Marshalls that I fell in love with and I love it in my kitchen, but again, the round table with the bench is bothering me since really only one person can sit on it at the table to eat. hmmm… More on that later in the week.
My table is just…Well, it’s NOT my style. Let me rephrase that, the color is NOT my style. A fresh coat of paint will take care of that, right? Right! I originally wanted Kristen to work her magic and make it look like a farmhouse table, but then I thought about the top of it. More on that this week too!
Bamboo blinds look great in my kitchen, just not at all of the windows. It took me months to realize this. Better late than never, right? I’ll show you what I’m talking about… (yep, later in the week!).
Le’ Crueset (dutch ovens) look great in kitchens don’t they?!?! I love them, but unfortunately I don’t have a few hundreds to pay for one. So what did I do? I went to Homegoods looking for a Cuisinart version and didn’t find one. So I “settled” for the next best thing.
I purchased this casserole pot for $12.99 just so I can have the look of the real thing
Be honest, you can’t tell it’s a casserole pot can you?!
I don’t think I showed you guys the kitchen cabinets after I finished painting them. Here are a few more shots of the kitchen before I sign off!
I love the two tones. I laugh every time someone come over and say that they like the color that I’m painting my cabinets and then say they can’t wait to see them finished. You should see their faces when I say they are finished. They obviously didn’t get get the two toned cabinets are totally “in” memo
