Kitchen Progress

The kitchen painting is underway!

I have the first wall, the door, and trim on that side done, and one bank of cupboards.

It’s not much, but  I will work on it today and see where I can get.

I opted for a controversial color in here, controversial because The BG doesn’t like it, but all the girls in the family did.  And girls are always right!  Right?

It’s called Cool Pool and is a lot more greeny-tealy blue than the pictures show. I couldn’t wait to start sprucing up that side until all the painting was done, so I made some curtains out of an antique table cloth and decorated the table top.

I popped out Saturday to visit a couple of my favorite antique stores and found some retro goodies to go with my oven. LOL

A wonderful Lustroware bread box, a crispy cotton vintage table runner, and a little Pyrex bowl are  the perfect compliment to my retro dinette set.

Do you ever go to TJ Maxx?  I love stopping in to see what they have every now and then.  I found a GREAT deal on two large, white platters to hang on the wall.

Now to just get the rest of the kitchen painted.

Have a great day!

    The table and chairs remind me of my mother’s old kitchen. She had a gray formica table and red chairs to go with it. Gray lineoleum tiles on the floor. And red congoleum on the walls (looked sort of like tile but it was one piece. She also had a red sofa and a grey rug in the living room.

    Love your kitchen and especially the vintage goodies.
    Please tell me about the curtains. Did you make them? They look as if they were made from vintage tablecloth’s or vintage towels?
