"Tuscan" kitchen progress

As you all know I decided to take Donna up on her Picture Perfect Room Challenge.  The kitchen is coming on smashingly!  Have you ever noticed when you start a project it has a tendency to lead to more projects???  That is exactly what happened in the kitchen.  I got the bead board wallpaper on the cabinets only to discover the drawers now look lacking.
So do you think the drawers need pulls? or should they be left as it?

I am thinking something along the lines of these... from Restoration Hardware

or either one of these from Lowe's

Yes it still needs to be painted but that will have to wait until it is warm enough to leave the windows open.


I still have a few things to hang such as these.....

They have all been in both our families for as long as we can remember and I always try to hang them in the kitchen or dining room.

Hmm, do you think someone wants some jello?! ha ha!

  1. it's coming along!!! Yay! it's so nice Peggy! that chalkboard has sure been a hit!
    ps don't forget to fix that jello!!!

  2. I LOVE your kitchen and that chalkboard wall is fabulous. What about some nonmatching drawer pulls that coordinate with the look of those trivets? I think Home Depot or places like that have them. Might be kind of fun. :)

  3. You wanna come look at my kitchen and give me some tips on how to fix mine up?!?

    1. Katie,
      I can most definitely do that since you are local. Just e-mail me or message me via FB and we will look at schedules. I know yours is pretty crazy due to work. Now I am off to recover from the weekend! as well look around for my bag of old drawer pulls and knobs.

  4. Oh my goodness your kitchen looks beautiful! I think your drawers look great just the way they are.

  5. Lovin' your Kitchen!! it's really nice, warm, and inviting! :)
