farm kitchen redone

I have this thing for blue & green....
And cows, tin, list of likes is large!

So, on a stop at T.J. Maxx on Friday, of course 
the blue & green tablecloths caught my eye.  I have
learned that tablecloths or shower curtains are a much
cheaper mode of acquiring great fabric.

By combining a table runner & tablecloth in the same fabric,
I was able to quite easily make a new sink skirt for our original sink.
*The trick is to save/use as much of the hemmed edges in your work!

Although I am not one for matchy matchy, right at this moment
I like the matching tablecloth on our kitchen table.

All the fabric was about $25.00 ~ including the tablecloth.  And I 
know it will be happy in the washing machine it was all 
meant for table use.

Another view of the table...the chairs are all painted
with scenes from our farm.  The large jelly cupboard in the
background is about the same mid-1850s vintage as our farm...
it is our kitchen pantry.  

And here is the sweet sink again, all dressed up with a new skirt.
I attach all my sink skirts via Velcro, so this can be swapped
out with the previous one when desired.

Close up of the fabric.  Will work nicely into Autumn!

How about you, what are your current "go to" colors?

Just beautiful! I love your choices. And I also love how spacious your wonderful kitchen is! My favorite accent colors these days seem to be grey and sage.

Love your beautiful skirted charming! My kitchen/dining area is loving blue and green right now, too!

Great idea for fabric..looks good! I tend to lean on the blues, reds and browns for colors. Janice

Oh Gosh! I love it. That sink! Be still my heart.

You don't know how many table cloths that substitute around here for throws, bed covers and well...table cloths. ha. When I find a fabric I love and it's on sale I snap it up.

LOVE it!! I am going to some muted greens/blues. I will have some gray too! Your sink skirt is lovely as well as your kitchen! I will have a sink skirt also when my kitchen is finished...hopefully in about a week. I like your creativeness....yes, much cheaper than fabric! Blessings~~~Roxie
