I went to Hobby Lobby last week looking for some fabric to use in my guest room. At this point I'm going with a black/white/grey theme. I have a twin bed in there and I just ordered a white quilt and sham. However, when I saw this off white/black French script fabric, I knew I had to have some. I wasn't sure in which room or how I was going to use this fabric at the time. My new dining room rug came in on Saturday (which you can see a peek of in this picture) and since this stool usually stays in the Butler's Pantry, I wanted to keep my colors between the kitchen and dining room complimentary.
So this was my chance to use my new fabric. I also made a dish towel to match. I bought 2 yards of the fabric, which was around $9/yard, but I used a 40% coupon, which is available online most weeks. I may be going back for some more. This is a medium weight cotton and would be good for placemats and napkins also.
This is my Butler's Pantry area, which I use for a coffee/hot beverage bar. I was excited to find this rooster creamer at Target on clearance a couple of weeks ago.
After checking Linda's picks at Coastal Charm Nifty Thrifty Tuesday last week, and seeing how Ann at White Lace Cottage used a French Drying Rack, I just had to have one. Of course, I also had to stick within my budget. I remembered that World Market carried a smaller reproduction drying rack. It isn't nearly as beautiful as Ann's, but at under $20 delivered to my door, I am very happy with it. In case you want to order one online, the website said they were backordered 1 to 2 weeks, but I still received mine in a few days. I ordered it Monday or Tuesday, and had it by Friday.
I also hung a framed burlap coffee sack. And, since I hung it too high, I added a plate I found recently at Marshall's to balance things out. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I have a lot of projects planned that I want to share, but I'm still working around contractors and the remodeling/repairs going on. I am off work today for the holiday, but I have 2 plumbers in my master bath, and someone else laying flooring in the upstairs attic (so I can store more goodies :). I'm pretty much restricted to my kitchen today, so I'm playing at the computer! I hope to share my dining room updates next. I have some chair painting to do first :)
I hope everyone has a great week!
