Grasscloth in the Kitchen
Ever have one of those days where things just go wrong? Where you find out that a client’s chair you were told was in transit, from a reputable company, is actually not even made yet…oh and the leather is on back order. Where you discover that a store that you often frequent has ordered the wrong rug for a client…for the second time. Where you head out to your car for a meeting – lugging a six month old in a car seat, a stroller, a diaper bag filled to the brim, a bag with client stuff and your purse – hike the four blocks to your car only to find that you car key (which is always in your purse because it’s keyless entry) is not in your purse and only have to lug EVERYTHING back to find the car key. Where on the trek back from the client meeting your baby decides to cry and cry so you decide to pull over in random town and feed her. Once back on road for home, you find that feeding her did not quell her, it only added fuel to the fire and said cry has turned to scream…but, really, what can you do but drive, listen to screaming and sing off key? Then at a stop light, you do your usual twist and maneuver to put a pacifier into your baby’s mouth only to have your favorite dress get caught on the seatbelt and rip…and I mean pretty much to shreds kinda rip. Come hell or high water, you finally make it home only to find said baby screams were caused by the poop of all poops…like poopy ms. mcpooperson….why not get on my ripped dress…cause it’s ripped…poop. One of those days where sh*t happens both figuratively and most definitely literally. I’m now typing this (the night before posting) with a glass of wine and it is really, really helping. #truth
On the bright side, the client meeting was great and I’m so excited with where things are going!
Now on with the show. Let’s talk grasscloth, shall we?
I’m a huge fan of grasscloth. It is timeless; it adds a beautiful texture and it goes with everything. I’ve used vinyl grasscloth in two bathroom projects now and I absolutely love that look.
My thoughts began to go to other great places for a vinyl grasscloth, which naturally took me to the kitchen. I’ve dug up some inspiration photos and it is a fabulous spot for some grasscloth!
Keep in mind, the grasscloth should be vinyl to keep up with all the activity involved in the kitchen. I smeared some makeup into a vinyl sample yesterday to test out the durability and it came out with soap and water. Amazing.
