So every time I to go a thrift store, I scour the wallpaper stash for some beautiful vintage wallpaper, but most of them are just ugly. I knew I wanted to line this cabinet ever since I took the doors off, but just hadn't found the right liner. Till now.
When I was scouring the red tag fabrics, I came accross this lovely fabric and I thought...this is perfect. It was so easy to install. I just cut the fabric 1 inch longer than it needed to be (height wise) and folded it over and placed it in with thumbtacks. It makes me happy every time I look at it. I still have quite a bit of fabric left. I'm thinking of lining another cabinet and maybe making placemats? Or even a string of yo-yo's to hang in the window.
This project got me so excited, I decided to hang some things on our bare wall in the kitchen. I also moved the tables around in the house too. This small table used to be our main table for dining. When we moved here, the family left a patio table in the kitchen. We used that for a while, but when the weather started getting nice I pulled the table outside leaving a vacant spot in our kitchen. It will be a while before we can afford a proper kitchen table, so these two small ones will have to do for now. We can eat family dinners in the dining room and casual dinners in here. The kids think the little table is fun. Andy painted the kids table with chalkboard spray paint.
It's starting to feel like home. We really want to redo our kitchen floors and countertops though. Anyone know anything about cork floors? I'm starting to think it may be the way to go.
