Kitchen Updates

I'm trying my best to keep you guys updated with all the happenings in our kitchen remodel. The past few weeks have been a little slow, so no huge projects to share, but here are a few little changes.

I found this cute artwork at Joanne Fabrics for 70% off recently, and had planned on hanging them up in our 2nd bedroom. However, I liked them so much that the thought of only seeing them once in a while kind of made me sad. So, I decided to try them over our kitchen sink!

I have been trying in vain to come up with some kind of color scheme for the kitchen (that ties in with the rest of our open living space, kind of difficult!). I really like the eggplant and of course the golden yellow on these canvases, plus I even have some accessories that go along with it! Also, they are just the right height above where our subway tile backsplash will soon be... ah, I can't wait.

Also- you may have noticed another switcheroo... this time on the glass lampshade for our above-the-sink light. The old one was a white, matte finish, and super boring. I love this new one and it's soft, champagne color and silver details. I think it really pulls out the metallic tones in the fixture and mimics the pattern of the countertop.

So let's take one more look at the before and after, shall we?

Ah. SO much better.

Well, I am off for the weekend friends! Hope you all have a fabulous break, and I will see you bright and early on Monday!


  1. Love the artwork! I can't wait to see how it all looks with the subway tile!

  2. Thanks Megan! I can't wait either, unfortunately I have to do all the work! :)
