My update to my kitchen is coming together, slowly, but surely. I have been shopping and deciding on some of the details and will start the hard work this week. The fabric I found for a table runner, was a great find at Calico Corner. Did you know that in the back of the store, there are piles of fabric, in fairly large pieces, that have been returned? After being unable to find the pattern I was looking for and one that was reasonably affordable for a table runner, I was finally shown this stash of fabric and found this pretty floral, perfect for a french country look.
I have finally found a light fixture that I love for over my table. This style also has matching pendant lights. It is specifically for use over an island, but since my table is a long, horizontal shape, I think it will look great. I like to use things in unexpected ways :-)
This week I will be found washing and spackleing walls, beginning to put paint on the walls and ordering the roman shades for the top of the sliding door. My goal is to finish by next week - I can't wait until I can put everything together!
