The kitchen is finally finished. All the large pieces are in place (the rug came yesterday,) and at last, I can say that ONE room in the house is done. If you need to be reminded of what it looked like when we initially moved in, check it out here. Bland, bland, bland. I painted, tiled, and painted again. I'm so happy with the end result. I think the hubby likes it too, even though he refers to the mural on the wall as our little fairy village.
This "chalkboard" is actually just black paint on the cardboard picture backing, and a little white pastel writing. I wanted it to be permanent and not get smudged somehow, so I sprayed a sealant over it. Voila'...faux chalkboard for free.
Above shows the new zebra print rug that just arrived, to push it over the edge. It isn't real...I didn't want it to look like a steamrolled zebra. I wanted the black and white zebra print punch, only with a bit of a caricature-ish twist. Hey, I figure if Jonathan Adler can do it...why can't I?
Below you will see a classic Made by Girl print that I purchased forever ago knowing this would be the perfect spot for it. Am I right?
