I find taking pictures of interiors very difficult, either the light isn't good, or the reflections are bad, and then there are all of those pesky views and other stuff that seem to creep in that distract or make the photo just plain unappealing. That is why I am in awe of people like Pat at Back Porch Musings who seem to do it with ease and the results are always wonderful. So when I finally was able to take a picture that I think really captured this area in my kitchen I was so excited that I decided to put it in my new header.
I remodeled this room a couple of years ago, it was my first big solo project and it took quite awhile. Although I was used to painting, wallpapering, and making window treatments this was my first experience using power tools and one of the things I am most proud of are the new moldings I installed; the shelf I built under the window, and what seemed like zillions of handles and drawer pulls I drilled holes for and put in. I love the results and it turned out just the way that I wanted it to. I don't remember now how many yards of fringe I used on the table covering and window treatments...there is another big window over the sink...but it was a lot; good thing it was cheap!
One fun part, while I was in Paris I kept seeing my floor! I was pleased because that look was just what I was after. Someday I hope to share the rest of the room with you, but first I have to get some more good pictures!
