Since I posted my kitchen makeover back in March, I’ve had lots of emails and questions regarding little details in the room so I wanted to tackle those questions in a post since I’ve had many of the same question. I also wanted to show you guys what I’ve been up to in the little space. I believe no room is ever “done” so bear with me as I continue to switch things up and rearrange. I think it keeps things exciting since I’m sure you’ve figured out, I like change in my home.
Since you saw it last, I’ve added a little plate rack and some fun plates. The plate rack came from a local thrift store and I painted it with Krylon’s Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. The two decorative plates came from Marshall’s and the white plate in behind the bird came from Dollar Tree.
I also added this little chandelier! It was $7.99 at a thrift store and I gave it a coat of glossy white spray paint to update it a bit. I love a fun chandelier!
I plan on adding some beads and hanging crystals but I’m still scouring for deals on pretty beads and crystals. I really don’t want to spend a fortune on the beads since the chandelier itself was such a smokin’ deal. If you know any good sources, by all means let me know! Pretty please.
I also added this DIY Canned Food Storage cabinet. I have been floored by the amount of traffic this little project has generated to our little blog. I only have you to thank my dear readers. THANK YOU again for your comments, pinning, linking and support on this project. You’re amazing!
Now let’s answer some of your questions!
Q: Where did you get your fabric for the Faux Roman shade??
A: My sweet friend Denyse gave it to me but she had originally purchased it at JoAnn’s. I am not sure if they carry it anymore but they have very similar fabric. I believe it is Waverly but not 100% sure and unfortunately, I do not know the name of the fabric. Wish I could be more help on that one!
Q: You have a family of 4… but where’s the 4th chair at your kitchen table?
A: I have a two boys ages 2 and 3. My two year old still sits in a high chair so we only need 3 chairs right now. I have 4th chair for him once he transfers out of the high chair but for now, the high chair is working for us at meal time.
This is what this room looks like on any normal day.
Q: Where did your microwave go? It’s on the counter top in the before picture but I don’t see it there in the after?
A: My microwave now sits on top of our refrigerator. We don’t use it all that often so it works well for us here; not to mention, it frees up some much needed counter space.
If you have any other questions about the space, please feel free to email me or leave a question in the comments! Just make sure you aren’t a “noreply comment blogger” or leave your email address with your comment. Simple as that!
I have a few more plans for this room but like anything else, it takes time. A few plans I have for this room are:
1. Paint this breadbox.
2. Add bead board and cabinet feet to the island thingy. Like this..
3. Pretty these up and replace existing switch plate covers. I got them from my friend’s yard sale when she moved away. I love them! I already cleaned them really well and sprayed them with Rustoleum’s Heirloom White spray paint but I may glaze or distress them a bit then I need to install them.
