kitchen wall

EDITED TO ADD: Kitchen wall is finished! go here to see what I did!

 

it’s TIME For another installment of HELP KIMBO DECORATE HER HOUSE!!!!!!

(so far we have talked about a big wall and fireplace. and my blah bedroom)

today i need some help in the kitchen (this is where my husband would snort and say “more than just decorating”)

but i’m having such a hard time with this wall. (the arch kills me in the living room) it’ s big…it’s connected…you can see it from the living room.

here is the mls listing….

 and here is the current state….

IMG_8532 i kinda hate the light fixture. i would love to put up something way more modern. husband would be THRILLED. so basically i have to figure out how to rewire stuff myself.

(we are currently shopping for a table and chairs…the table will be about the same size (we can’t agree on counter height or chair height) but we will probably have a bench on one side cause we both like the look

i’m planning on throwing a big plant in the corner too… and i’m thinking a big black and white striped rug under the table…

and we are also looking for barstools…and since i’m cheap and all these things cost more than $10…i have the hardest time making a choice. so i don’t make choices. ha!…right now the barstools are narrowed down to..

this one is my favorite i keep coming back too… 14204942_120824043000

but I don’t know if backs would be better…(these would be spray painted)

(and keep in mind that i don’t like the table so far out cause we go through the patio doors a lot...so a big buffet or hutch wouldn’t really work.)

so here is what i’m thinking…

PLan A.

a GIANT framed chalkboard. Huge rectangle…

like this one i spotted here

real brooke white

the only reason i sway away from this one is i put 9 frames downstairs in my husbands room…

karl's wall

onto: option d:

giant art

I could frame some fun fabric…or paint a canvas…or anything just on a large scale…

option i don’t know where i’m at anymore:

i still come back to a really skinny hutch. i could make it work…but mind you..i have no fancy dishes. like none.

 and this picture also brings up another things….should i throw up some beadboard or board and batten. i would want it white…but my kitchen has no white

…so i think it would look totally weird…
