Progress: Kitchen

Just like the Family Room, our Kitchen is a mix of old and new elements. With its location adjacent to the Family Room, we decided to stick with the same color palette. I like to call it Lemon/Lime/Licorice:

The table is from our previous home’s dining room. It’s by Sitcom Furniture, and I purchased it from a interior design warehouse around 7 years ago. The new chairs are Ikea’s VILMAR seat shell and VILMAR chair frame for $39 each. I love the graphic print and the fact that they’re durable and easy to clean! I’ve learned my lesson from my old dining chairs (that got pretty beat up) that fabric on dining chairs and children don’t mix well. The rug is from Rugs USA; when I ordered it, they were having a 70% off sale with free shipping. For the 6 ft. round, I paid $35. The table runner is new, Target clearance for $5. The round tray (Ikea) and apples (Marshall’s) are from the old house.

The lined, grommet-topped window panels are from Ross (2 pairs for $20/pair) and pole and hardware from Ikea for $8.

The green stools are Target clearance bought in-store for $66.48 for a set of 2. Again, no fabric for easy cleaning. 🙂


Green vase on counter top was a clearance find at Home Goods for $9.

The new wall art is $7.50 from Garden Ridge, marked down by 50%. Gray vases and potted plants above cabinets are from Ikea (from the old house). And the metal art above cabinets is from Big Lots (also re-used from the old house).

A red-line through a bar code at Garden Ridge means the item is marked down, either 50% or 75% off, depending on which signs they have displayed.


I’m pleased with the progress of the Kitchen, although I’m sure there will be more changes…paint, more accessories, new light fixture over table, back splash? We’ll see! If you haven’t learned anything about me by now, I love a good deal! Clearance stickers and markdowns are the best, and  I don’t believe that you have to pay full price to get the look you desire.
