Kitchen Booth – Decision Time

May 15, 2015 at 5:03 AM 4 comments

I have been hemming and hawing over what fabric to pick for our kitchen booth.  I’ve been wanting this booth since the day we bought the house, you’d think the second I got the green light, I’d have everything all ready to be executed.


Alas, I’m wishy washy on what color scheme to go for – I’ve gone from seafoam, to camel to pattern and back around again and again with moments of yellow, navy and red mixed in there.  People!  I even said to Graham “maybe we should just give up and not do a booth after all” and I was only being half dramatic.


My sister in law pushed me to go color.  She is right!  I love a good color boost. Plus, the kitchen nook is the spot where I listen to children cry in unison, where I watch them pour milk all over the floor and where I call their father in desperation only to hear he hasn’t left the office yet.  I realized that staring at my favorite fabric while sh&t goes down could really help me out. Kind of like wine but slightly healthier…although, a tad less effective.


You all know for the six years that I’ve been writing this blog, Christopher Far Cloth Carnival is my favorite fabric.  It was very satisfying when I used it for my mom’s poolhouse…

BUT, it would be even more satisfying if I used it for my own home.

I’m going to get it laminated and that will be the back of the booth and then I think I’ll do a green or a blue vinyl for the seat.  So so excited!!

Don’t hold on to your seats though because the big reveal isn’t coming any time soon.  It’s looking like a three month wait time for the fabrication of the booth (and in this business you always add on a month).

    Oh, this is going to be good! I love this fabric and can totally see it with some tone on tone horizontal stripes on the wall! It makes me feel normal that you’ve considered every possible option and then even considered not doing the booth! Ha! But, I’m glad you made the decision – must feel good to move forward!
