Kitchen Booth – Decision Time
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).
