A DIY Faux Roman Shade And Chipping Away At My Farmhouse Kitchen Facelift

I’ve been chipping away at a farmhouse facelift for my kitchen!

Here’s the farmhouse style mood board I’m working off of.

 Other than replacing my old table with the new black round one, the most drastic changes that I’ve made are to replace the window treatment and the can light above my kitchen sink.

The roman shade is a faux one and it’s no-sew too!

I’ll share the directions with you soon.

 I gave serious thought to repainting the walls, but then I remembered how much I adore black, white and green together when I found the black and white fabric.

I’m afraid that I can’t tell you what the name of the fabric is.  The place where I purchased it won’t give out that information.

I’ve been adding other farmhouse touches here and there too.  Like these cute porcelain urns that I placed on the window sill.  You might remember that I used a couple of them in a vignette on my kitchen island last week.

My footed, fluted bowl is such a versatile piece!  I’ve already used it in another vignette too.

My sweet daughter added the typography for me with her Silhouette.

 I haven’t decided what to do about my little lamp in the corner.  I kind of love it just the way it is.  What do you think?

All in all, I’m in love with the way that the kitchen is coming along!
