I received an email today from a reader and depending on my mood, it could have easily put me in a slumper.  Instead, she inspired me! For the past few weeks I have neglected my kitchen.  Remember the curtains I “made” using some fabric I already had on hand?


I never really liked it hanging up there and after my son stepped on it for the second time and causing them to fall, I took them down and didn’t think anything else of it.  And then I started with the butcher block.

Well, after that email I mentioned earlier, I remembered the tablecloths I purchased from Target about a year ago to make “short” drapes with.




I haven’t cut them, yet.  But I already love them A LOT better than what I had up there previously.  Why did I wait so long?  Why didn’t I hang them in the first place???

And since I forgot to update you on the butcher block, here’s a peek at it too!




I’d say the kitchen is coming together quite nicely. What do you think?

Hard to believe it is the same kitchen! I LOVE those chairs as well. Where from?

It looks great Lakeitha! Love that print. What about adding some mustard colored accents around the kitchen to compliment the birds in the print? - Saudah

I love the fabric! The long ones were nice, but I really like these so much more.
