Our kitchen ~ Before....

it won't be anything major...
but I will be changing the look of the kitchen in the next few days....
we have never fully finished the kitchen
(no lower cabinets, no dishwasher...yet)

so I hung fabric to hide our pots and pans...
I usually change out the fabric for seasons,
but this time....

I want to change it out using vintage tablecloths from the 40's & 50's...
I won't cut or sew them,
but simply use curtain rings to hold them to the rods
that Peter has attached just below the countertops

the little 'island' has burlap sacks on it now, but
that will change too....


I'm hoping to switch out the rug also,
so I'm on the lookout for a lighter one..
hope fully an old hooked floral ~

...the little white drysink that you see above was purchased from Robin
(www.millstonemercantile.blogspot.com)
& I LOVE it !
I would like to do someting
to cover the mural that I painted on the backsplash, too...
maybe use old tin ceiling tiles? chicken wire?
do any of you have suggestions
for a great backsplash cover up without repainting?

Blessings from the farm,
~ Lori ~

Boy does this bring back memories. Years ago we lived in old farmhouse with an unfinished kitchen and I made curtains and hung them to hide the lower cabinets. I had not thought about that in years. Thanks for bringing back good memories of fun in that old house! I love all of your pics. Thanks for sharing.
