Good Evening! Hope you had a great week. I have been very sick but seem to be getting better thanks to breathing treatments every 4 hours!! Anyway...I know we all have "problem areas" around our home as of right now I would say mine are 2 spots above my kitchen cabinets. As many of you all know our home is French Country so keeping with the look of the rest of our home I have ceiling tin, platters, family items (antique crock Great Grandmothers) and other items I love. In the kitchen/breakfast nook area I have kept with cream, black and touches of red. This are has more cream..sorry photos is not great. :)
The large crock on the far right was my Great Grandmothers she used it to pickle things. :) The other items I just like yep there is ceiling tin. :)
This area I like..vintage scale with vintage bowl of apples and planter with antique rolling pins I have collected.
Insert "problem area" #1 area above vent....
So far I have come up with either a large scroll iron or wood plaque or I like the idea of either EAT or YUM letters in either black or cream...here are some pics I found on Pinterest.
I also like the idea of a key...of course it would have to hang horizontal.
But I also LOVE the idea ceiling tin. :) I know you are in total shock. LOL It does go with the rest of our home.
Just to the right of the vent is problem area #2...
Love the decorative finials but I think either iron plaque or maybe an old window on the wall behind them would help. I will remove the ivy also...just needed something up there when we put them up there 7 yrs ago. :)
Everything does not look so washed out in person.
Any thoughts on this would be great...also what are your "problem areas"?
Hope you have a great Friday.
