Some Kitchen Projects...Revealed!
I'm baaaack...well, temporarily at least! My husband and I are going on vacation this coming week but I just wanted to share a few projects I got done in the kitchen, as well as the new wall color...dipped chocolate. (Mmmm hmmm, just as yummy looking on the walls as it sounds!) Just wait until I show you the before with its lovely orange walls. The after is like a 1,000% improvement!
There are 2 windows in the kitchen that let in lots and lots of natural sunlight so the room can handle the deep shade of brown. I love animal prints and found a really great sale on leopard decorator fabric at Hobby Lobby for only $2/yard. I decided to make a shade for each window and combine a few fabrics for the valances that I sewed. The other 2 fabrics were originally drapery panels that I decided to cut apart and use. Decorative black trim is glued along the shade edge.
I LOVE how the "E-A-T" letters turned out! Such a quick and easy project to do. The letters were found at Hob-Lob. For the silverware art project,I started with a frame I found at a garage sale years and years and years ago. Then I cut out squares of the coordinating fabrics, laid them out in a way pleasing to my eye and took a picture as a reference point so I'd remember once I got sewing. The silverware is out of the bin at Goodwill. I tied the bows on and hot-glued them right on to the fabric piece.
There are more projects in the kitchen that I do plan to share...but right now I'm pressed for time getting things ready to head out of town.
Thanks for looking!
