I chose the hardest room in the house for the kitchen...who puts a kitchen in the room with slanted ceilings?
Wanted to make it a kitchen/dining room/breakfast nook....and, this was the only room that was big enough....but a challenge.
It turned out better than I anticipated...
What do you think?
I had an issue with the pot rack...where was it going to go???
Because of the slanted ceiling, there needed to be some creative way to hang it and still fit in all the furniture.
Light bulb went on!
I'll take a decorative piece of outside trim and turn it into a unique ceiling piece that would hold the pot rack.
I have quiet a few Besqac pieces of furniture but, I didn't want to go that direction with this kitchen.....so, I had to dig through my older minis to see what I could come up with.
Don't get rid of your old *littles* you never know when you can use them.
Back in the day the kitchen units/cabinets were a beautiful mahogany...Bespac, of course...but, I painted them.. OH NO... I actually took perfectly perfect furniture and painted it.
Well, they just didn't work for me any longer.
I use to be afraid to redo good pieces of furniture...but, no more. I can paint with out batting an eye.
So, I made it look old and shabby. Notices the long twisted wire pulls that I created for the fronts of the units.
The lace curtain was made from the one inch pleater... that little sucker comes in handy.
A good shot of the wire pulls.... two pieces of wire twisted together and shoved in the holes.
I need more cute things to go on this unit.... more things to make..OR BUY.
I seem to have an overkill of suitcases...you guessed, I like to buy them.
Got a great idea to make it a picnic case...
Much more work needed...it needs to be cute and look like what it's suppose to be, instead of all the goodies just thrown in there.
You get the idea.
I have so many things to FINE TUNE and CREATE.... that's the fun part for me.
The dessert table is waiting for all the little sticky fingers to arrive.
I thought my vision of a FRENCH feel and look would rise from the ashes...but, don't think I accomplished that.
Oh well... it is what it is...think you could call it a little bit country..with a tad of shabby chic.
What ever it is, I'm happy with my two days of work.
Now, the fun part....making and designing some new accessories for the room.
Cookbooks, real pillows, finished picnic basket, napkins and place mats, and.... little accessories to set around to complete the look.
The unfinished look on the left side of the hutch will be filled with pictures...just couldn't decide which ones would work.
I'm getting all my rooms in some kind of order, then I'll work on the *fine tuning* of the entire house, room by room.
Have a lovely day doing what makes you HAPPY.
