Back in 2009, I painted my kitchen cabinets.
They went from oak to white.
I have a pantry that's just off the kitchen.
For some unknown reason,
I never painted the doors to the pantry
when I painted all those kitchen cabinets in 2009.
I guess I was thinking the pantry is not actually in the kitchen,
so I could leave them alone.
It only took 5 years for me to realize those pantry
doors would look better in white!!! lol
I wish I had a before picture.
Why didn't I take a before picture?
Here are the doors, after I finished painting them:
In this narrow hallway,
the kitchen entry is to the left,
a window to the right.
I bought new curtains for the window.
Having always admired these from Country Curtains
for their cottage appeal,
I decided it was high time I bought them:
I love those wide ruffles!
Now the trouble was,
because there is always trouble when I do something,
there seemed to be a lot of white in this hallway now,
with most of it concentrated in this one area.
So, I decided to add just a little something to the doors to
break up some of that white. Something different.
A little whimsy....
...in the form of vinyl decals, purchased on Etsy,
from this shop.
(This was the same shop where I purchased my stair decals.)
It's funny how just by adding a little detail
like this, is enough to change
the look, break up all the white, and make me happy.
When I come in my back door,
I now see this as I enter the kitchen.
Simple though it may be,
the little birdies make me smile every time.
A lovely week to all of you!
