Our Kitchen is Done!

We are excited about the kitchen being done so soon. It took a little less than 4 weeks. We are pleased with the results and are looking forward to adding some nice touches like curtains, wall hangings and some homemade hot pads and trivets. The kitchen feels twice as large now and is larger since we moved the sink out of the way.

Tom keeps asking "Do you think it really does look nice?" I keep saying "Yes, it's wonderful!"

I think he just wants to make sure I like it and I do like it alot. It's lovely!

We both look forward to entertaining and making lots of yummy meals for all who come to visit. So come on down your northerners!

I am looking at fabric for the kitchen valances. Any ideas? Please email me some fabric ideas and colors. I think I could throw some red in there with the curtains to give a pop of color, what do you think?
Yes, the countertops are granite!! Thankfully they were on sale and could fit our budget!

This is our tile backsplash with one inch glass tiles as accents. The colors of our kitchen are also the colors we had at our wedding which were sage green and ivory. I think of our wedding day often when I look at the tile work!

In regard to your curtain ideas. I wasn't thinking of red. I was thinking of a plaid with a variation of colors. Maybe like a wine, sage, and cream? The window looks great without any curtains tho. I like valances or a swag would dress it up a bit. Love us sis! Marisol

I would recommend the Waverly Fairfield Valences from JCPenney- in the Chianti Cabernet pattern. Check it out on the JC Penney website.

Mindy, I checked them out and they are lovely! But I am leaning more toward the Waverly Clarissa Valance Paddock Shawl. What do you think? Thanks for telling me about JC Penney curtains. I was going to make my own but I'd rather work on bags. Check out my frenchy bag, coming soon!
