In my previous post about painting my kitchen I mentioned that I chose the paint color based on the hand-me-down patio door covering I got from my mom. That post was getting fairly long so I didn't include a pic. Well here it is.
It doesn't show up in this picture but there's a green patterned band on either side of the red. Check out the inverted box pleating at the top of the curtains - my mother spend a long time making this (and about 6 more like it), and just switched out to gray.
Up next in the accessories department - covering up the table. Refinishing that table is on my DIY to-do list, but that's at least two months away. My mom (can you tell that she's awesome?) found this tablecloth at Gordman's for $5. The picture distorts the color a bit, but I swear it goes.
And the final addition to room (at least for awhile) - I found this rug on Joss & Main. I think it was $30-$40. It's not the highest quality rug, but the price was right and the colors were perfect.
I still have quite a bit to do, but it's really starting to come together.
Kitchen when I moved in:
The most pressing not too expensive items on my to-do list:
- Re-finish table/chairs and recover chairs
- Update window covering over sink
- Finally finish the crown molding around the light fixture
