Hello friends, I hope you all had a good weekend.  Mother Nature was up to her antics again so we got some snow.  I spent a lot of time working on my kitchen refresh.  If you’re new to The Striped House, I’m halfway through a mini kitchen makeover focusing on the seating area of my kitchen.  You can still catch up on Week 1 and Week 2.  I did a major overhaul on my kitchen almost 10 years ago.  I don’t use the seating area of my kitchen a lot, so I never really paid much attention to it.  I committed to making my home fully functional and comfortable this year, so it was time to tackle the space 🙂

Here’s what I’ve accomplished since last week:

  • The light is hung and the ceiling medallion is up
  • The roller blinds are installed
  • The framework of the box hiding the blinds is up
  • I found a cruelty-free countertop paint company, so the paint to refinish the tabletop is enroute
  • A new rug for by the sliding door is also enroute
  • I’ve ordered a faux plant to go in the corner. (I’ve given up on real plants.  Too much responsibility for this busy gal.)
  • I’ve got an upholsterer waiting in the wings for when my chairs are delivered on Tuesday.

What I Still Need to Do:

  • Fill the hole in the ceiling left from where my old light was hanging
  • Finish painting the floating shelves
  • Pick out fabric for chairs
  • New stool for countertop?
  • Make up my mind on artwork, the struggle is real…
  • Caulk, paint and add final piece of box around roller blind hardware
  • Finalize plans for fabric on blinds.  I keep going back and forth.  I bought some fabric, but now I’m questioning my choice…

T minus 3 weeks!!!

      Haha, trust me – she’s thought about it! I saw the paw reach up and bat at it a little. I think I stopped breathing while I watched her. So much trouble… 😉
