happy Friday everyone!
i am nearly finished with the black cupboard makeover!
the cupboard was a Craig's List find about two years ago.
it was due time to add some needed pizazz to what has appeared
to be a big black hole between the living room and dining room.
i kept the transition simple and on the cheap!
here are my inspiration photos...
i am not sure where i found this image, if it is yours, do tell!
this image taken by Susan Hawthorne on her recent trip to
France. if you are seeking francophile inspiration visit her here.
the cupboard needs a bit more tweaking... so far it has
taken on a fun and bold transition...
here's before! (lot's of clutter)
i am still in the process of sorting linens, but i am really loving
the concept of decluttering this place!
i ordered the "Tracey Beachcomber" fabric on line.
it arrived BIGGER and BOLDER than i expected.
i was a bit disappointed, but it's growing on me!
i apologize about the quality of my photos, i shot the images early
yesterday morning, and this morning before work.
the project took on a whimsical, modern interpretation of the inspiration
images above. at night the flameless candle gives a soft glow to reveal
C A F É on the windowpanes.
now, i am contemplating new knobs!
i'm off to the office!
