I've also been working on a cute decorative wall accent for above the cabinets. I loved the wooden letter words that Ashley from TheHandMadeHome cut out and covered with some lovely yellow patterned fabric. I found some wood letters at Hobby Lobby and painted them in a chevron pattern and another pattern. I love how it turned out!
I recovered my bar stools and made some curtains using a table cloth on clearance at Target. I paid $7!
I also found these kitchen towels at Target on clearance for $10 or $11. A nice compliment to the grey and yellow scheme.
Almost forgot to mention installing kitchen knobs and pulls on the cabinets! I got mine at Ikea. I went with Svep in black for the white cabinets and Lindsdal for the island.
Can't wait to get the bead board and corbels in place!
