I thought I better do a small post just to let everyone know that I am STILL working on the kitchen!! It is coming along quite nicely!
Here you can see that I have painted the walls a milk chocolate brown. What a yummy color!!! Definitely makes the cabinet color look much better! I also painted the ceiling and it sure needed it! Nice and fresh! The inside of the cabinets have all been cleaned and decluttered! That is a good feeling!
You can see that I still have the back splash to complete. I purchased the tin tile embossed paintable wallpaper yesterday at a store that is about an hour away from my home. Now days you can't find much choice of wallpaper in stock. I should have ordered it but didn't think about it in time. I really want to finish it up.
Remember this inspiration picture of how I am going to make it look like copper. Wish me luck!!
I have also sanded the counter tops and given them a coat of oil based primer. Very smelly!! Luckily, yesterday it was a crazy 70 degree day here in Missouri. So I painted them with the windows open and left town to get my wallpaper!! I am going to do the faux painting with glaze today.
Here is a sneak peek at my black base cabinets! I did some distressing and painted the handles in a copper. I really like how they turned out!
I still need to sew my window panels for the patio door and the valances for the two windows. Here is the fabric and lining that I am going to use. Hopefully I can get this done before Thanksgiving that we have on Sunday!
Last, I purchased these two area rugs from Walmart online only. It is hard to tell in the picture but it has brown, ivory and gold squares which matches our colors.and looks even better in person! I bought a round one for under my round breakfast table and a runner for in the kitchen. I still have to clean and paint the grout to get rid of the mauve color grout!!!
Okay, this is keeping me honest!! This evening, Mr. Creative is going to hang my new light fixture and make bigger holes in the drawers for my new cup pulls. Back to work now!
Thanks for all your wonderful comments and inspiration!!!
