{Kitchen Makeover} Curtainworks and Accént Walls

Slow but steady wins the race….that is the approach I am taking with redesigning the spaces around here.

After our  unfortunate kitchen paint debacle, I was able to go to Home Depot and get the correct gallon of paint on the house….as if they wouldn’t after that mix up.

I haven’t completed painting the areas that need to be repainted, but since I have the paint on hand I feel I can move on to make selections for the next part, its all the same. Paint in the house but not on the wall is practically the same thing. Not really but whatever.

I mentioned before that it looks really bland in here with the wall color being so light now, so I’ve decided to move onto curtain selection.


Y’all know I’m not much of an online shopper but after unsuccessfully beating the pavement and finding options that weren’t long enough I decided to turn to the online marketplace to search for the 108 in curtains that I would need.

I reached out to Curtainworks to see if they would be willing to work with me in outfitting my kitchen with new curtains and they said yes!

I was thoroughly pleased with Curtainworks selection of curtains and how easily they were categorized on their site. I knew I wanted something a little modern and they needed to be long in length.  I found what I needed easily thanks to their many link options to include: Valance, Tab Top, Long, and Pinch Pleat just to name a few. I love a pinch pleat ( that was a hint).

I’ve ordered them and they got here rather fast. I wasn’t ready as I still have a few tweaks I need to do to the wall before putting them up.

Speaking of tweaks. As much as I say I love color my mind always defaults to neutral colors.  I had a grand idea of how I wanted the curtains to match some fabric that I purchased to reupholster a bench that is in the kitchen. Wouldn’t you know trying to match the fabric I ended up with a curtain color that is very close to the wall color and now I need to add a little pop of something. I am currently toying with the idea of an accént wall adorned with either paint or wall paper.

I’m still a little torn but I plan to have this project completed before the end of the week. I’ll be back with the reveal. I promise!

I received complimentary product to facilitate this post. All opinions are mine. You already know!
