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!!!!!!
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….
(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..
but I don’t know if backs would be better…(these would be spray painted)
and i love these woven ones..
(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…
a GIANT framed chalkboard. Huge rectangle…
like this one i spotted here
or even this one.. source
it will never look this fancy..but i love the bigness…
OR should i do a set of three skinny ledges loaded with frames
doing an organized wall…(source)
the only reason i sway away from this one is i put 9 frames downstairs in my husbands room…
onto: option d:
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…
So come on ladies! tell me what you like??!!!!
