I cannot believe that this is the last post of Jill’s house reveal! (sadness) It seems like I should have a LOT more to post about!! Showcasing the house is definitely the fun part though! I will have a tutorial or two to share, but this is the last reveal post. I hope you like it! If you missed the living room and entry way, don’t forget to check them out!!
One of my favorite things to do is bounce decorating ideas off my friends, family and clients. THEY might not enjoy everything that rants out of my crazy/decorating mouth, but I SURE DO! Ha! When I told Jill that I wanted to make fork and knife curtains for her kitchen, she looked like she was going to fall off her chair! I think I even followed the comment with, “You will JUST have to trust me!” I had a vision, and I was really excited to show her what that vision was!!
The cozy cottage style kitchen is decorated in the same serene turquoise, white, grey and olive pallet that I love. It is very clean and bright, and I cannot get enough of it! I wish it were my kitchen/dining room! When I was making decisions for Jill’s House, my main agreement (with myself) was that I would not put anything in her home that I would not put in my own. I stayed true to that guide throughout the entire decorating process.
We added a pot rack (that we constructed ourselves) and hung it with rope (because of my love affair with pottery barn and restoration hardware who have both used rope in their designs this season). I loved the idea and even secured the rope with legit bailing wire. As a farm girl from central Utah, I couldn’t help myself!
If you have been a reader of my site for a little while, you know that mismatched furniture is definitely a love of mine. So, I’m sure you aren’t surprised by the mismatched chairs around Jilly’s dining room table. The green velvet chairs at the head and foot of the dining table were purchased from Marshalls, and the others were made over by yours truly. Of course I used my FAVORITE spray paint from Krylon!! I showcased them in my fun week of chairs posts.
Most of the accessorizing was done by Leslie Thomas, a good friend and talented decorator who placed most of the accessories above all of the cabinets. I made the fun confectionery shop window and I loved how fun it turned out! Making boutique-like items for Jill’s house was a lot of fun for me (and super duper thrifty too!)
One of my favorite subtle details of the kitchen includes “his” and “hers” aprons that I also made for Jill with my Silhouette CAMEO machine. AND, the magic machine also helped me make the fun fork and knife curtains displayed earlier in the post. I’m telling ya, my Silhouette CAMEO was my right hand man (or girl) during this makeover!
Most of the other accessories for this space was purchased at HomeGoods, Tai Pan, and Michaels crafts. The fun sugar and flour glass canisters that I also labeled using my Silhouette CAMEO are pretty cute, and they were simple canisters bought at a big box store. The amazing rug for in front of Jill’s sink was a STEAL of a deal on Hautelook a few months ago.
I worked really hard on Jill’s House. In fact a lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this transformation. I am really happy to be able to be sharing the final result with you! If you have any questions about where be bought any of the items in this room, please don’t hesitate to ask. I am willing to share every single detail.
The fun farmhouse style table came from Down East Home (on of my FAVORITE home decor stores in St. George Utah). The rug beneath the dining table was super duper cheap from Overstock.com. (Similar to the one linked here, but a different size).
I hope you love it, but above all else, the fact the Jill loves it is enough for me!
