I redid my kitchen several months ago and had an idea to make some things to hang on the walls. Everything has been done except the things I wanted to make so I decided to take a little while this weekend to get most of them done. I am working on a couple of needlework things and when they are finished everything will be complete. I went with a red, yellow and white color theme in there and wanted it to be kind of retro too. Specifically the colors are red and white polka dots with yellow and white gingham. Kip was so afraid when I told him my color choices. I think he thought I was going to paint the walls with those colors. His fear was that it was going to look like a fast food restaurant.
My mom made my curtains and we were able to find the perfect material and then I was able to find paper to match too. Everything turned out the way I wanted it to!
This is an image from Amber Ink. All the images were colored with Copics and use paper from The Paper Studio. I purchased some plain black frames to hang them in.
This apron was in the Help for Katie set.
And this one is a Karen Lockhart apron.
I hung them above the piece that Kip made for me to hold my aprons. The apron in the middle is mine, the one of the right is Samantha's and the one of the left was made by my great-grandmother.
I thought I would include this picture too, since it shows a little more of the kitchen. It also shows the curtains that my mom made for me. The bird plates came from Pier 1. I wanted to use that clock that I have had for a very long time but it was green. The casing that holds the clock is made out of plastic and I wanted it to match the kitchen. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a can of spray paint meant to paint model cars, popped the actual clock out and then spray painted it.
