Kitchen Decor Redo

Hello, bloggy friends! Long time no chat, huh? I've been in a bit of a funk lately. I actually wrote a really long post about how I've been depressed, but decided against posting it. Writing it certainly did help me feel better though! I've decided I need to make some changes in my life to help me get out of this rut. Nothing too major, but a few little changes will make a big difference I hope!

Last week I made mention of how Ant got me a new wall hanging for our kitchen. You can kind of see what I used to have over the sink in the first picture of this post. I really liked the Van Gogh canvas I have (I was an art history minor in college), but every time water splashed on it the ink would run, so it looks pretty bad now. I've been looking to replace it for a while and came across this at Target.

I really liked it, but I also really liked how colorful the Van Gogh was in my kitchen. So Ant suggested I put something yellow behind it to keep the color in the room. I think he suggested painting a background but I thought putting a patterned fabric behind it would be neat. I tried hot gluing the fabric to the wall hanging in one piece but the hot glue didn't stick to the fabric at all, so I ended up doing this with some regular all-purpose glue.

Took a bit longer, but I finished gluing everything in less than two hours while I was watching TV Wednesday night. Here's the final product!

Pretty snazzy, right? I'm a little obsessed with it. I also redid the two black frames with some blue and white toile fabric.

Tonight Ant and I are having our second date night without Harry! We just planned everything yesterday, so totally last minute. Before Harry was born we purchased a Groupon for a local comedy club and had planned on going the weekend after Harry was born. Obviously that didn't happen as we were busy going back and forth to the NICU. The Groupon deal actually expired but he got an email the other day saying they were extending it through the end of the month so we jumped on the chance to get out again. Should be fun!

And since I've been absent from TAW for a few days, here are a couple pictures I took of Harry yesterday.

Awwww, what a cutie pie!


  1. I love what you did with the flower. It really pops on the wall! Great job.
