New kitchen drapes about to arrive!
Okay, I am pumped. Way pumped. Even though I love the rug under the table in the kitchen, hubby wishes it were gone, saying it makes the area appear more open. I don't really think the area NEEDS to look 'more open', but I have relented to get rid of the rug. However, without the rug, the kitchen is seriously lacking in pops of color & fabric. Sooo... I am getting these AMAZING drapes from World Market that I have drooled over for months on end. Also, I am going to buy a third drape, so I can hand-make a valance for over the window (matching the drapes on the doorwall). ALSO, still in-keeping with needing MORE color in the room, I'm going to PAINT the kitchen chairs. It'll give me an excuse to break-out my NIFTY new summer toy: my paint sprayer!!! I am thinking a shade of burnt red from the drapes, but would welcome opinions! Of course, there is always that blue color, but I already have blue/orange/green accents in the kitchen. I also have a wire basket in that shade of yellow. THOUGHTS? I need a color. But truly, I'm thinking the contender is the burnt red color.
The switch plates made it up yesterday. Lovely - and I never thought I'd be commenting on the 'loveliness' of a SWITCHPLATE!!! But they really do help disappear into the backsplash. :) So, it looks like I'll be posting FRESH pics as early as a few days from now. We get the drapes tomorrow. Then I need to get a little paint for those chairs.......
