Years ago, if you told me that there would be a rooster (let alone multiple roosters) in my kitchen, I would have laughed in your face.
But here we stand (or type?)
and I have roosters in my kitchen.
Listen, it's all fairly innocent how the love affair began.
I wanted a simple rooster.
I found this super cute one at the Hobby Lobby, for $5, but I had sticker shock because I had just been shopping in the 90% off section.
I've regretted it ever since.
I love roosters, not colorful, or over the top.
My original "want" was for a wrought iron one to sit on my fridge...like the one I saw at the HobLob...
(I really need to let this go right?)
So flash forward about 7 months.
I decided to make a sink vallance.
I'm not sure that's an actual thing.
But you'll get what I mean in a minute.
I don't have a window behind my sink bc it's a galley style kitchen.
BUT I wanted to add fabric into my kitchen and liven it up a bit.
I went to a fabric store in my hometown called Lens Mill. It's like a million rows of fabric.
I had no idea what I wanted, which is maybe a good thing.
I wanted to see it and KNOW it was "the one".
Even if it was Roosters...
Which it was.
And I love it.
(even though I hesitated and texted my Mom a pic for approval first)
I give you, my Roosters...
I simply sewed them (all straight lines) leaving a pocket for the spring pressure rod.
BTW...it's really hard to get some good natural light in a galley style kitchen, so this is as good as it gets for these pics!
What do you think?
Have you ever gone out of your "norm" to do something crazy (like buying rooster fabric) and LOVE IT?
So this was all the beginning of what I hope to be a slow kitchen makeover.
Next up, paint the cabinets.
I'm awfully indecisive about these things.
By the way...
I didn't let it go (yet).
I googled to see if I could find an image of the one I was in love with originally.
Chic on a Shoestring has it in her kitchen (see? roosters are cool)
