Kitchen Makeover

I am finally finished with my Christmas Shopping and I only have a few more to wrap. We are planning a family gathering tomorrow at my parents house. We decided to have Mexican food instead of traditional food. We will have chicken enchiladas, Mexican rice, Charo beans, salsa and chips, and creamy jalapeno dip. After eating Turkey and dressing for Thanksgiving and Christmas we wanted something different.

As some of you know we have been working on our kitchen for several months and we are coming closer to the end of this project! Mother and I made the curtains last week and I have decorated one wall with a shelf and art. I am shopping for a clock for one of my bare walls but haven't found the one I want yet. We still have to put trim above the cabinets and purchase a new refrigerator but that will come later. The man that was going to do the trim did not keep his word on coming and doing the job. I think my husband is going to do the work himself. I am going to paint my chairs black and probably the dining room hutch black. The weather has not been fit for painting. I am really pleased how everything turned out in the kitchen and I can't wait to completely finish the project. I bought the curtain fabric at "Interior Fabrics" in Austin and I also purchased the rings that I clipped to the top of the curtains from "Interior Fabrics". Each bag of Curtain rings comes with 5 rings in them. I thought that 10 rings would be plenty to hang the curtains but I had to go back and purchase 2 more bags. If you like to make your own curtains "Interior Fabrics" is a great place to buy fabric, lining, and all the hardware. I am posting a few before and after pictures of the kitchen. Have a Merry Christmas and a warm Holiday!
