Good morning! Today I want to share with you some of the mistakes I’ve made as well as how my original kitchen design didn’t go so well…and I’ll share with you my new refresh design board since my turn of events.
If you’d like to see my original kitchen refresh design board click HERE. Some of you may know already if you follow me on Instagram (@creekwoodhill) that my oversized pendant lights did arrive but oversized is an overstatement. They were ginormous yall. Seriously like the size of a baby car. So much for my measurements! Besides that they were beautiful and I tried hard to find a place in our home to fit just one of them. But nevertheless they went back to the store.
Next was this rug from Target.
It’s a beautiful rug but in person it wasn’t this light in color. It’s heavier on the gray tones and the pink was slightly more orange-y than what is shown. More apricot than pink. So this was my second fail.
And lastly the vintage rattan counter stools I had my heart set on…in real life they were hideous. No wonder they were priced so cheap!
About the only thing that arrived and looked amazing were my cabinetry hardware! Click HERE to see where you can find them.
So last week as I was crying that I’m at week 3 and haven’t even started I decided to hit the ground running. I sourced a fresh new wallpaper, lighting, decor and a rug!
I am in love with the way this look he together. I love a mix of pattern and textures and I still think I’ve accomplished that. I still think I have warmed up the space and I love the blue accents. Especially that wallpaper! If it were a dress I’d wear it! Along side my kitchen refresh (and the basement remodel I’m helping with, click HERE to read more how that’s going), I’m also prepping for another home tour blog hop which I can’t wait to share with yall! This little house named Creekwoodhill is definately packing some visual punch and I’ve been a busy thrifter!
Well, until next week (where I’ll share more of the basement remodel) I’ll be busy over here installing wallpaper and light fixtures while sourcing some great new finds!
Thanks for stopping by!
