I wanted to make our kitchen/ dining space more springy. So, I spray painted a bunch of black stuff white. White always adds a certain crispness which lends itself to spring.
Below you see the dessert rack and tray being painted. I also painted picture frames. I wanted to keep this low cost and use what I have.
Then, I recovered the seats of the chairs with a blue, green and tan stripe, and recovered the lamp shades with a blue. Both are actually outdoor fabrics.
The kitchen before is below. It is the after from yesterday. You can see the green apple as the centerpiece, the table runner I had made, the black lamp shades, the black frames, the seat cushions.
The black dessert rack.
And now, after a few small changes, here it is. The idea is simplicity.
Some flowers for the table.
Put the yellow tulips in some old cream bottles that I actually bought cream in from Whole Foods.
Some flowers for the counter.

Just wanted to let you in on a fairly quick revamp! What do you think?
What are you doing to liven things up?
