Summer Kitchen Makeover

Ever since Christmas when I took down my artificial evergreen around the top of my kitchen cabinets, I've been looking for something to replace it.

This past week I noticed that Michael's had their greenery on sale (50% off) so I went over to see what they had in stock. I'd always had in the back of my mind that I wanted to add some kind of sunflower decor to my kitchen but just hadn't come across the right thing. Well this time I found some perfect greenery and sunflowers that I really liked.

Here are some before and after pictures..........

When I went to thank my husband for funding my little project - he let me know that he appreciated how nice the redecorating turned out (especially since it didn't involve rearranging the inside of the cupboards!) Now there's even more reason to enjoy spending time in the kitchen!!

Hi Jessica -

This is my first visit to your blog, and I'm glad I picked today to stop by. I love the sunflower decor you've chosen for your kitchen! What a cheerful place to be!

Have a great day.

Looks wonderful! Brought so much more life to your kitchen. I too have the same problem with above my cabinets. I keep thinking I want to put antiques up there but still haven't found the right ones much less enough of them. Maybe if I start with greenery I can add them in as I get them.

I love your summer makeover! :-) I just might have to try that! I always do fall leaves on my kitchen cabninets in autumn, but never thought of the sunflowers for summer - thanks for sharing the wonderful idea. And thank you for entering my giveaway! :-)
