I almost have my kitchen done. I still need to replace the backsplash and I want to add some beadboard and moldings to the island. I have it painted and my new curtains arrived and they are hung up. I have never had buffalo check curtains before and it is taking me some time to get used to them. I think that I made the right choice.
The rug is new as my old round rug was red with gold and purple tones in it. It now has a new home in the formal living room. I think this one goes well with the curtains and the chairs. I am not a big fan of plantation shutters but it would be too much work to remove them as every window in our home has them. Also the trim in the home was restained dark but the windows underneath the shutters is not. I would have to restain all the windows so I guess they will stay.
So here is how the kitchen looks from the family room. We also replaced the two pendant lights above the island with a lighted pot rack. Since these cabinets are smaller than my previous kitchen I needed more storage for my pots and pans.
