I promised a while back to show the progress in my house. Well, I only finished this room before Christmas but hey, I'm finally showing y'all right?
Here was our breakfast nook before we moved in.
This is a shot of part of the kitchen.
Remember these chairs I found at Goodwill for $9.99?
The curtains are canvas drop cloths that cost me all of 18 bucks for all of the curtains in the kitchen!! I replaced the old light that hung too low with one I found on clearance online for $30 bucks.
This swatch is the actual color of the wall. It is Silver Sage from Restoration Hardware.
This grate that I hung above the table is from Paris. It was on an old home in the early part of the 1900's.
The big black cupboard used to be in my craft room but it just "fit" in this room better.
These gorgeous old stoneware bottles were made and used in the town my husband grew up in in Northern England. Bacup, Lancashire to be exact. Apparently, they were drank from and then you threw them in a recycling sort of bin at the time. They cleaned them, then refilled them with ginger beer and put a cork in it. My father in law found them in an old house and gave them to me.
The colors are not showing up "true" because it was a night shot but you get the idea.
I have been tinkering still with placements of things and making it more cozy but I wanted to share with y'all.
Oh- and remember I said "personal decor"? The painting near the microwave was bought by me and my hubby in England at an antique store about 5 years ago and I never had the right place for it.
I do now!!
Hope you enjoyed the little tour of my kitchen.
