I'm trying psych myself up to start
painting our kitchen cupboards.
I really don't want to start but I
know that once I do ...
I'll be on a 'roll'.
Before I buy paint I need to
find a fabric for under the kitchen
But that's where I'm having problems.
I need to find the PERFECT patterned fabric
keeping in mind that...
1) It must tie in the colors of the dining room.
2) It needs to have that 'farm cottage' look.
3) It needs to be able to hide dirt from
hubbies...OK.. AND my dirty hands.
4) It needs to be washable.
I haven't found one that jumps
up and says 'pick me!' yet.
But I'm looking.
Since I'm not going to tear up the
flooring and we have a grayish
I'm thinking of painting the lower
cabinets a soft blue/gray
and the upper cabinets
an aged white.
I wished they were as nice as
the cupboards in these photo's!
We will be adding some molding to
the top and trim to the bottom
and hopefully some brackets
to give them a custom look similar
to the cupboards below.
I'd also like to add some 'legs'
under the lower cupboards
like the ones in the photo above.
For now our counter tops
will have to stay
but hopefully one day we'll replace
them...even if it means touching up
what ever we mess up in the process.
I love all the crown molding in the photo below.
Doesn't this kitchen have character!
The Inspired Room
We will be installing bead-board to
the ceiling and also crown molding
like we did in the rest of the house
including the bathroom.
Sure wish we had wood floors
like the photo below.
But...we're being frugal so unless
hubby or I burn a hole in the flooring...
So for now I am scouring Ebay for
the perfect fabric and hopefully one
day soon I'll be pulling out the old
roller and paint brush.
Until then...I'll keep looking for
fabric and inspiration.
Are you looking to start any
home projects in the near future?
