Kitchen Update Journal {four}



Progress. The past week has been busy and there is finally progress being made on my kitchen update. I may be slow to start a project, but once I get going, I like to keep moving towards the goal, slowly but surely. I was happy to pick up my inspiration piece, that I had framed and am thrilled with how it turned out. I picked a white frame, and yellow and burlap look mats to set off the print.

The biggest project is that I have almost finished painting the walls in the kitchen and only have my laundry room left to finish. I won't lie - it has been a big job, but in a way strangely enjoyable and rewarding. A kitchen like mine, with a lot of cutting in, takes time and patience, but I have gone slow, at my own pace and it has turned out beautiful. The color is exactly what I was hoping for too.

I have picked a textured white fabric with a soft yellow stripe to use on a fabric roller shade for my sliding door. It was the perfect solution to help block the afternoon sun. There will be a scalloped edge on the shade, with yellow trim, for a pretty finishing touch.

My final checklist includes fun things like having the new lighting installed and hanging things; both new and old on the walls. The final reveal of my kitchen will come when the window treatment arrives in a few weeks. I can't wait to see everything finally come together and to share it with you :-)

Happy Tuesday!
