This is the fall/winter curtain I made for under the sink. I'm looking for material for a spring/summer curtain next. (oh oh excuse the salad bags I left on the counter for the chickens!)
We spent three months renovating 3 bedrooms the dining room and living room in our little farmhouse last summer. We still have the bathroom the laundry/back porch/entry and the kitchen left to do. My husband and I are in no hurry to tackle any of it...we're still burned out from the last renovation! BUT...since we're not in a hurry to do any inside work I'm still renovating in my head. Well...thinking of the future renovations..getting ideas and trying to work with what I have now. I decided to take the doors under the sink off and sew a curtain....this one is for fall/winter but I'm trying to find the perfect spring cottage fabric. I'm leaning towards something like what I had in the kitchen of our last major kitchen renovation...a Waverly fabric or close with yellows, raspberry reds, greens, creams in stripes and flowers. I'd like to make a spring /summer valance for the window...curtain for under the sink and a runner for the little old farm table. I'm sure I'll find something on Ebay but so far nothing at the fabric stores. This kitchen renovation won't be a major as we won't be changing the cabinets but I think I'll paint them and we'll put a crown molding on them. The ceilings will be beadboard and I'm hoping eventually to tear up the linoleum and paint the old wood floor..maybe even stencil it too. These are just ideas for now but I'm having fun working it out in my head. If you have any suggstions I'd love to hear them! What would you do if this was your renovation?!
We'll probably change the countertops out but paint the cupboards
I love this yellow cupboard! These are the other two rooms that need renovating. Notice the stockings in the mirror in the bathroom hanging over the tub! Geez Maura.
These are temporary shelves that my DH put up for me. We'll build an old fashioned cupboard looking thing there eventually and I'll probably sew a curtain to the bottom just like the sink. We changed out the hardware.
We needed all the storage space we could get so DH put these little shelves up too. He sure is a sweet heart!
For now...we've got lots of work to do outside. I'm not in any hurry for the inside as I want to enjoy the 'ride' and take my time to give this old kitchen some country cottage character that reflects our personalities. I hope you'll continue to join us as we continue our adventures down here on the farm.
