I've been wanting a rug in the kitchen to add some color mainly, but also because Charley plays in there a lot. I figured it would be a nice spot for her to bang her mixing bowls. You know, when she's not busy "helping" me load the dishwasher. I found this bold rug on clearance for $12 and I love it.
While we're down here on the floor, let me show you another little addition to the kitchen. I thought Charley might enjoy some artwork hanging above her grocery store, so I DIYed some for her. I found a set of notecards with friends having a tea party for 50 cents at Michael's. I taped one to scrapbook paper and put it in a frame (with plastic, not glass). I used 3M tape to hang it on the wall. That way it can be removed without nail holes when this space evolves into something else.
Lastly, I decided to hang a second shelf on the wall next to the window. I had been thinking about it ever since I hung the first one, so I decided to go for it.
And here's a glimpse of our rug again, just for fun.
That's what's going on around our house. If you're looking for a wintery fun activity for the kiddos, check back on Friday! Pin It
