Have you guys seen my kitchen lately? It’s not cute.
I know I complain about this a lot, but I hate our kitchen. I love the bones of it, and I love the potential it has, but it is oh so ugly. Weird, shiny cabinets, faux-wood laminate countertops, vinyl flooring that never looks clean, and the weirdest texture that has ever been put on walls.
So, over the last year and a half that we’ve lived here, I’ve been doing what I can to make the kitchen slightly more tolerable until we can give it a complete overhaul. I’ve had some success, taking it from here…
All minor changes, but they add up and make the room a little less awful.
Well, today I’m adding one more little update to the list.
I’ve been wanting to hang some tea towels in our kitchen for a while now, but I hadn’t found any I really liked. But then, I stumbled on this super cute sangria towel at Anthropologie, and I knew I had to have it.
We also grabbed this measurement towel from Crate & Barrel, which I’ve seen all over the place. I love how bold and graphic it is, and I’m a huge fan of the size.
I’m not gonna lie – I don’t think they look all that great next to the oh-so-terrible wall color in there, but Corey and I are hoping to take care of the texture and wall color in there over the summer, so hopefully that’ll be fixed soon. And it feels good to finally have some art hanging in our kitchen!
I’m currently on the hunt for the perfect fabric to recover those chairs (I actually like the orange, but it’s falling apart so they need to be redone), so within the next few weeks this little corner of the kitchen will be looking even better. And, of course, once our new windows are installed we’ll be figuring out a good window treatment solution for this area – I’m determined to get rid of ALL the ugly white blinds in our house if it’s the last thing I do!
Anyone else adding some art to the kitchen lately? Am I the only one mildly obsessed with tracking down cute tea towels?
