Yet another change...


I just can't put that paint brush down!  My little blogging corner has been updated again.  All thanks to paint. The kitchen was just feeling really white & needed something to help balance the visual weight of the chalkboard wall.


So I updated it with some leftover glossy black.  I think it is amazing what a little paint can do.


I also finally made a drapery panel for this end of the kitchen.  This was simply a canvas drop cloth that I stenciled eons ago.  I have been wanting to hang it for months & finally had a minute to get it up.  I love how it ties in the cornice board over the sink.


I also didn't have quite enough white ceramics or china to display... so I cheated.  I followed a crazy simple tutorial I found from Sugar and Charm, & poured paint into cheapo vases & let it drip out.  It created a back painted effect that blends the diy versions right in with the rest of our collection until I find real pieces I love.


I am loving the high contrast back in my little world. 


Happy Monday!

  6. I think that hutch and desk were meant to be black; really anchors that corner and creates a different zone from the kitchen. Back painted glass looks so different from spray painted glass ... those vases really do blend in nicely. Looks great as always. Robin

  7. Agree with your gut and Robin. The necessary 'one black piece in the room' is stupendous. Glad you put your stencil cloth up and do I want to ask how long that took? Tied in with other like it always was meant to be. And the vases were silly cool prop styling. Yay you!!!

  17. This looks so incredible! The white was beautiful, but in the space, the black really makes an impression and stands out. I took the time a few weeks back to go back through every single one of your posts, and you are so incredibly talented and inspiring. I can't wait to try some of your strategies and suggestions. Well done!

    1. It's another thrift store find... It was actually a plant stand I added a marble top to. Here is the link about it: http://thehuntedinterior.blogspot.com/2012/07/hairpin-leg-table.html

  20. Wow I thought when you got that piece it looked nice, but now? Sooooo much better. It is seems so bland in the before pictures now that you put the high loss paint on it!! Love it even more!

  21. Such a beautiful space! I just received my order of the same Santa Maria Desert Flower fabric you used on your chair seat. Have had my eye on it for some time now. Will be reupholstering a chair in it in the next week or so. LOVE the bold yummy colors.
