Wine And Dine Part II

The one thing about my old kitchen was that it seriously lacked any personality. It was the same decorations that were pretty basic and boring. It's a challenging space because there is so little wall space and such weird heights on top of the cabinets. If you've been following me on Facebook you've seen some of what I've been up too. One of which was ordering a fantastic print from {here} and it was probably the best $20 I've ever spent!

Since I bought that fantastic print I had to get a frame... the print is a 13"x19" which is slightly odd. So I decided for right now to just get a floating gallery frame. I can always reuse it if I change my mind on it. This guy is from Hobby Lobby for $15.00. 

It was a little tricky but we finally got it into the frame! Fantastic right?? It's sort of a spin off of the traditional "Keep Calm and Carry On" British propaganda poster. I think it's awesome. I love wine!

And then again from a distance....

Since I was on a wall decorating spree I decided that I should add a couple more into the space some how. Creatively and cheap was the goal. So I was pouring over Pinterest (of course) and came across another blog that had these great prints as a free printable! They are sort of graphic but simple, and free!

You can print them in an 8"x10" but since I have very little wall space I decided to just stick with two 5"x7" print outs. I think I need to get some new frames but for zero dollars it definitely turned out way cute!

But wait!! There's more! I went to Lowe's! I bought the rest of the products for the kitchen remodel! 
At least I hope that's the last of it. Ughhh.

You see here from left to right: Olympic paint for the walls, Rustoleum paint for the countertops, and paintable wallpaper for the back splash! Oh it's going to be awesome! Kinda scary! But awesome! It's going to be a very busy weekend!

Here's a better shot of the wallpaper. I piked this one because it's in the shape of tiles and I can use some semi-gloss paint over it to give it an extra protective coating. Plus it's easily removed if I get bored with it at any point. What you don't see is the new molding for the toe kicks that I am finally replacing.

So what do you think of all the additions so far? Do you think it looks better then the old kitchen?

Just think! It's not even done yet! hehehe. Yay!
