Buffalo Check and Burlap

Hello everyone!

Well, the first day of school started off without a hitch.  It feels strange to have a quiet house again. 

Many who read my blog regularly, may remember these draperies were once in my family room.  They had been put away until (or if) I decided to use them again. Well, that day has come.  I pulled them back out and hung them in my kitchen.


 
I was ready for a small change and these fit the bill.


That's the nice thing about having the same color scheme on the main floor.  I can move things around easily from room to room.


I also moved my little burlap bench in here too.  This is the original one I had (before I found the one with the union jack on it).  I draped a burlap pillow cover over it because I liked the bolder script.




 

Hope everyone is having a good week.

Thanks for stopping by!

~ Kelly ~

They look great, and what a wonderful window there!! I suggested the drop cloth window treatments I borrowed from you to a young newlywed at my church, and she was so thrilled with the hers, that her mom bought some too. Love the little stool too.

I've always loved buffalo check, and the new softer colors look much more neutral. How nice that you can move things around from room to room!

I love buffalo check. Your house being neutral is great. We used to pass around curtains within the family when we got tired of them.
Great way to recycle them.

I love buffalo check curtains and yours are the perfect neutral color. Great burlap trim on them...I keep thinking I want to redo my kitchen with a new paint color and buffalo check curtains instead of the green walls and valence I have now. I'm so ready for something new in my kitchen, and I'm getting great ideas from yours. Hmmm. :)

It seems school starts SO very early!! I'm not up on school things anymore but I don't think it has started yet in this part of the country.

Your kitchen looks lovely. I love the lamp sitting on your island. I use lamps everywhere!

chateau chic said...

I reeeally like your buffalo checked curtains in your dining room. They're perfect as we look forward to fall. And your wicker and burlap look so good in your lovely white kitchen! Sooo pretty!
Can't believe your kids are already back in school.
