Ok, so maybe some of you are like me...when you get on a decorating mission, there is just no stopping you...that's me and my kitchen this week...I can't believe how pretty it is starting to look (at least to me) and we haven't even bought any paint yet! :)
Ok, I got this mirror yesterday on clearance at Michael's...I think the original price was $69.99, I paid $20.99 + the cashier gave me a 20% off coupon, what a rush! lol! Oh, try to ignore the torn wallpaper, I took off the chair rail, so I could hang the mirror...the chair rail and wallpaper are going, so I will live with it for now:
Then...I was on Susie Harris' blog yesterday and she was showing off her pretty kitchen and I just had to copy her lamp idea...now, my lamp is nothing like her shabby chic and uber cute Rooster Lamp, but it will do for now...what I love best is the lighting it gives off, I spent ALL day in the kitchen yesterday and I really think it was because of this dorky lamp and it's beautiful light that it gave off...notice I moved my Mama & Papa salt & pepper shakers over here, too:
Then...as if copying one idea of Susie's wasn't enough, I also loved her metal bowl thingee...so I found a similar one, also at Michael's, also on clearance...I had the colored balls...got those on clearance a couple of years ago at Cracker Barrel...I think it looks GREAT...but yes, I know, I know, my tablecloth is wrinkled...I have ironing issues, well, I don't even own an iron, seriously, we have no iron and that is the way I want to keep it...if my Italian cousins are reading this, I know their eyes are rolling, haha, they iron their sheets...but ok, I digress, on to the prettiness, which is this table:
Well thanks for putting up with me and my kitchen obsession this week! Also, I am leaning towards a green, black, cream color scheme for my kitchen...so if you have any ideas, please share them! I also will probably just use this rub/buff product for my hardware, so that will save boo-koo bucks. I am pretty sure I want black curtains, too, with a print. I would love to paint the cupboards either black or green. The walls, I am leaning towards the green, too. The brick? I guess, cream? They are an off-white sort of color now, but it seems to have a red base and it is just not that pretty...so they may need paint, too.
