As you may remember, earlier this month I wrote a post all about fabulous red and white buffalo check in the kitchen. Well I did go to Country Curtains to purchase the drapes and valances I had shown you in the post.
While I is was in the store I noticed the black and white buffalo check and really liked it, but I had the red and white in my head so that is what I ended up buying. Once home I realized that I was totally wrong about the red and the black would be a much better fit for my kitchen. So yesterday I went back to Country Curtains to exchange the red for the black check.
And I LOVE THEM!!!
After exchanging the curtains and valances I went across the street to the Home Goods store, and as luck would have it, I found these pretty black and white dishes. Aren't they adorable? They even have my much loved rooster on them...how perfect...they were just screaming my name!!!
Then I spied this darling black farm basket which I simply could not resist!
So I managed to get one of the valances up in my kitchen...this style is called an Austrian valance.
I can't wait to get the new rod for the drapes so I can hang them. I want a thick black rod and finials to thread the drapes through. These drapes will frame out the sliders to the back patio. I also plan to recover the seats of the kitchen chairs and refinish the table top just to freshen up the space a little bit. Hopefully I can get to that this weekend!
Speaking of the weekend, I wish you all a wonderful one!!!
