5 Ducks and a Kitchen Quest
I was able to get those done this weekend. I still have 6 pigs, 7 lions, 8 turtles, 9 lady bugs, and 10 fish to do though.
I'm taking a short break from it. Housework was suffering.
Speaking of housework, we were supposed to put a back splash up in our kitchen over the Labor Day weekend. Needless to say that did not happen. We'd spent the previous week trying to agree what to put. Philip wanted white and beige traventine tiles in a brick pattern. I however HATE the idea of brick inside. I know it's sort of in right now (or so my husband tells me), but I really think brick is for outside.
I was leaning toward something more colorful, with more of a punch.
I was thinking slate or colorful mosaic tiles.
I feel like while we were building we were so safe and clean and neat, and now I want to take some risks and have something in my house say "POW".
So this is my kitchen, I'd like any stalkers/readers out there to give me some ideas/opinions.
This picture was taken before I had any blinds on the windows, so its really bright. The color of the cabinets are actually a bit darker. They are mahogany, and the granite is black.
Philip and I were both willing to do each other's ideas, but neither one of us really loved the idea of not having both of us love the backsplash [got all that?]. So yea, tell me what you think because we're going to revisit this project in a couple of weeks when we can meet in the middle.
