I have big plans for our kitchen. Plans that include painting the cabinets (which we had previously stained. Ugh. Not my favorite thing to do), putting in butcher block countertops, and getting appliances that actually match. Right now we have a white fridge, cream oven, black microwave and black dishwasher. All fully functioning but not aesthetically pleasing, by any means. However, my big plans have to wait until it fits in our budget. (I’m crossing my fingers for the year 2015. 🙂 So, in my opinion, a cheap update was in order.
These are the curtains we have had hanging on our slider door/window since we moved in three years ago. Again, fully functional, but a little boring. We received a few things in Nate’s Crate that we didn’t use (or at least not all of it), that worked perfectly for the feel and direction I’m heading in with our kitchen. So, why not put the free stuff to good use? Brilliant idea, Jessica. 🙂
Tada! With the help of my handy mom, we now have great new curtains for the slider and the window above the counters in my kitchen. Woohoo!
Not only are they functional since they close over the entire window, but they’re cute and fun!
We hung this valance all the way up at the soffit and the entire width between both counters in an effort to make the window look larger. It worked!
This kitchen is starting to make me happy.
It’s defnitely a step in the right direction.
