So on to my bits and pieces ;)
First I need your opinions. I have been wanting to make a display for my girls' artwork for some time now. The ideal space is in the kitchen, the only problem is the lack of wall space. We have a little bump out where the kitchen table sits that has these 2 foot wall spaces on either side. Here's what I was thinking of doing...see the little 1 x 2's by the door...
My questions are...
1. What do you think of displaying the art work there? I plan to paint the wood and add clothes pins.
2. Should I add some on the wall across from it to balance it out? (I'm already thinking yes)
3. What color should I paint them? The wall color or white? Or something else? My plan is to paint the kitchen a yellow, as soon as I find the right yellow (I'm open to suggestions on the perfect yellow too :)).
Second... I have white counter tops and reddish oak colored cabinets. Really want to paint cabinets. What do you think of gray? Or should I go a slightly warm white? I would love aqua (hehe) but not sure that would be good for when we try to sell later down the road. And I plan on only painting the cabinets once. :)
The girl that sold me the table lives about a block from the mall that has anthropologie. So after I got my table I made a stop and picked up some goodies...it's been a few years since I've been :( I had a little fun and wanted to share my goodies:
All bright and happy finds!
And lastly...even though the temperature outside says differently, I am ready for Fall! I already started burning my pumpkin spice candles and changed my chalkboard...
