Kitchen Window


Just wanted to show you a glimpse of my kitchen window treatment.
I used an old header, and 2 old corbels. I got the header from my friend Karen.
I told my husband Mark that I wanted to use it as a valance. He put it up for me, to my specifications. I really love it.


The cute little chandelier came from the Rose Bowl Flea Market. It had already been rewired. Mark took out the old ugly light, and wired in my chandelier.

The little mercury glass bird is another favorite thing in my kitchen. He greets me every morning.

Hope you are having a great Tuesday!

Love the mercury bird under the bell jar! I really like your window treatment-using the corbels on the ends is such a nice touch. Also, the plates-luv them. The whole thing looks great! Your cabinets look cool. Did you apply that finish to them? I want to see more kitchen!

Such clever ideas-- and so nice your husband can help implement your artistic "vision"! Could you show us the bird up close sometime? I don't think I've seen one quite like it.
