I Heart Curtains
I love the windows in our house because they're tall and let in lots of light. But the two windows in the kitchen were hidden behind vinyl roll-up blinds with avacado and rust-colored, glued-on fringe. Now the light, sheer curtains provide a backdrop for the table when closed and a focal point when open. How have we survived this long without them?
We might add a valance later, but for now I'm happy with these cheapy Wal-mart sheers.
In other kitchen news, Darwin put the bin pulls on the drawers. Woo-hoo! No more struggling to tug open the drawers with our fingertips.
The kitchen is really coming along. The next day we get to work on it, we'll be able to put trim on the upper cabinets. That will be the real moment of truth.
We're now debating whether or not to put up the toile wallpaper I've been planning all along. We think it might be too busy. But I hate to give it up because I found a scrapbook covered in green toile.
What do you think? I've got it set as the background for my Kitchen page, so you can check out a wider expanse of it there.
Next question, if we don't use the toile, what color should we paint the walls? My Fiestaware is rose, orange, yellow and green ... would yellow walls look OK if we found a way to tie it into the cabinets? Like a decorative something-or-other on the false drawer fronts and the trim over the sink?
