More Kitchen up dates!

So I finally finished painting the Kitchen and main living area upstairs. (Show you more on the rest of the house later.) I also finished the curtains for the sliding glass door in the Kitchen. A few months ago I came across some in expensive fabric at Walmart. The colors were perfect for the kitchen and living room. So what was I to do? Buy it right? $13 in total! I also bought some heavy lining cause it gets cold on winter mornings at the table. Add $5for lining. Now I just need something to hang them on! I bought a rod a Walmart but it just looked to wimpy. So I remembered I had bought these damaged finials at Lowe's over a year ago. A little paint and I was in business. I went to Lowe's and bought a wooden rod for $16.99, and it matched perfectly. Bought rings with a discount coupon, $16. I love doing things for less!!

I love the chunky rod and big wooded rings.

I made them floor to ceiling. I think it looks better. Now the neighbors can't see what we are doing all night!

Second kitchen project was so easy. I happened to have six recessed lights in the kitchen. Two are over my island. I wanted pendant lights over the island. The Lowe's fairy came down and granted my wish. I went from this.

To this! Love it! They have a kit to convert can lights to pendant lights. Then you pick your shade. All you do is screw the conversion part in like a light bulb.

It cost about $17 a piece. What do ya think?

Show ya the rest of my painted kitchen later.
