Good morning! I hope it’s warming up where you live…we’re going to enjoy temps in the low 50s today, which will feel like a heat wave! Over the weekend, I got out my paint brush and finally completed a job that’s been left hanging for way too long. I painted the bookcase at the end of our new kitchen peninsula. Then, I adhered some contact paper leftover from another project to some foam board for the back of the bookcase. I am so happy to cross this project off of my list because it has been an eyesore as just a dumping ground for all the things that haven’t had a proper home. Now, it’s nice and organized and I’m vowing to keep it that way.
As you can see here, I also stained the supports under our counter to match our flooring. I love the way it looks with our industrial stools.
The inspiration for finally getting this done came in the form of this pretty little piece of kitchen art, provided by the Darren Gygi Home Collection.
I just love the colors in this artwork. The piece I was graciously given is just one of hundreds in the Darren Gygi Home Collection, available at many retailers nationwide. You can find collections of art related to food (perfect for kitchens), botanicals, birds, the beach, holidays and many more. I had a hard time choosing, but settled on this one of bread because I loved the colors, and it reminds me of baking bread with our daughters.

Now that I’m motivated, maybe I’ll actually get some other things done in our kitchen!
Here are some other kitchen projects I’ve completed:
