I was ready for a change in my kitchen. I painted my kitchen red when we moved in 7 years ago! Sharing the before ...
AND NOW THE AFTER!! Changed a few things around in the process of the paint job! Ralph Lauren paint - Natural Canvas.
I reworked this area- added a few of my silver collectibles, and brought out the fall plates.
Fresh Basil drying on an old towel rack that belonged to my Grandmother!
Silver tray filled with spices, seasonings, and my favorite TEA! I love the coffee prints, the coffee clock and the Sanka container filled with coffee.. reminds me of my Grandmother.
The window view of the kitchen.. don't you love the new color?? So light and airy!
I removed everything off the top of the shelves~ moved this locker bin of plates and the rooster to the foot of the newly painted chalkboard. The new chalkboard- love it- I had a list of many items - LOML erased - no more projects until Super Bowl is over!! The red phone is one of my prized finds... I have about five of these throughout the house... Ma Bell (AT&T)has been good to me and my family for 19 years so I am pretty proud of all my junky phone finds!
I had these bread boxes above the cabinets but moved them off the top of the shelves and grounded them on the floor with my junky find picnic basket! and then ...
My inspiration for the following came from My Sweet Savannah rate her space here. I had wanted a new look above my cabinets and when I saw this - I was in Love with it! Stop by and see her blog, or find her on rooms on Rate My Space on HGTV.
AND then for all of you that are wondering -- did I really paint the red wall with the rooster... NO!! No! She is a part of the family and I love that wall with all my heart! I hope you enjoyed the little redo! Thanks for popping by- You all inspire me- Would love to hear your comments! Valarie
