Below you can see a before photo of the cabinets. My brother and I stained them mahogany. That yellow oak just didn't work for me.
I'll be mixing in some more modern pieces to achieve that eclectic coffee-house feel. I'm loving the texture on the jars. Picked up 3 of those lanterns and want to hang them from the ceiling. The wood tray came from Target and will more than likely get a decoupage makeover.
The tall "vase" on the floor next to the scrolly thing was meant to go on the upper cabinets where the ceiling gets tall, but once I get it home the color is too close to the sienna color of the wall so I'm not sure if I'll keep it or not.
There's a large sienna wall that troubles me. It's big, it's sienna and I am struggling with it. GRRR! The clock is just ok. Billy really likes it. I think it's a cool idea but not well executed. So I need to work with it and make it live up to its potential.
The table - it might get a make-over. I would love to paint it and do something fun to mix it up. There's a lot of dark wood with the cabinets an I love painted wood. So I'd love to change up the set and add some interest there.In the accessories photo there is an iron scroll style piece that I think I'll put on the wall that is high and you walk under it to get to the door you see int he photo below. Not sure what to call it. It goes all the way through the living room to the right. I don't really know what to do with that space in either room. The placement for the scroll is a bit expected up to put it there so I'm going to try to find a better place for it. But that's my initial thought.
To the right of the white door (laundry room door) there is a small wall that will get a chalk board. That'll be a fun project! I'll be sure to share how to share the tutorial here on the blog.
The last photo is a view of the whole kitchen. You can see the lights we put in. I love the glass shades on the lights over the sink and table.
