>decorate my kitchen + csn stores giveaway

>As many of you know, we moved into our new home in June and have been in the midst of decorating our 2300 square feet of space into a place we can call home. We bought all new furniture – beds, couches, console tables, tables, lamps – painted walls, shopped for art… You name it. And if you can believe it, we have more decorating to do.

My current project is getting the “eat-in” part of our kitchen decorated. My mom recently painted one of our walls a yummy taupe, and I purchased some oversized silverware art that we hung on the wall, but the room is still looking sad and empty (though, well on its way to being cute and cozy).

As you can see, we have French doors at one end, a kitchen on the other. We have a small table to seat four, though we dropped a leaf and pushed up against the wall to give us more space for our toddler who runs around like a maniac.

What you don’t see is that we are accenting our entire main level with red accents. Perhaps you’ve seen them in previous posts of our dining room and bathroom. I am trying to maintain this through the kitchen, too, with maybe a vintage country twist.

OK, so enough about my kitchen (well, maybe there is more to come).

The people over at CSN Stores are giving another one of my readers a $45 gift certificate! CSN has over 200 online stores and you can buy just about anything for your home, including cloth diapers and baby gear! All you need to do to enter to win is comment on this post and tell me you want it (be sure to include your email address).
