Kitchen Makeover continued - Patio Doors.

The kitchen is finally in the home stretch and I couldn't be more excited and relieved!  It has been quite the undertaking but the changes have been completely worth it as I love the emergining feel of the new kitchen.  Here is my new decal - BE OUR GUEST - obviously from my most favorite Disney movie of all time, "Beauty and the Beast."  I like the way this incorporates a touch of Disney magic and the plain sentiment of welcoming people into my home for a vist, a meal or beyond.  I think it is such a softer look than the green and black color scheme.

The old patio doors before I painted the inside trim black and added new draperies.  

The old kitchen table and the slanted wall project which I liked very much.  It was made with wood trim and scrapbooking paper taped to the wall.  

Here is the new slanted wall treatment!  I love it - the texture, the clean white color and the crisp lines add a touch of coastal chic.  I simply used wood trim to get the look.  The light from is actually a front porch lantern but I love the way it adds drama to the table.  It was from a Habitat for Humanity ReStore in South Bend, Indiana.  New in box, it was only ...... wait for it...... $28!  I'm gushing!

The pub table is my sister's kitchen table.  She has moved in with me post-divorce so she can take a breather and figure out her life.  Her pub height table fills up the space nicely.

Thanks for stopping by - more pics and updates to come.  Hoping to be done by July 1st!  (Fingers crossed)!
