Welcome to Foodie Friday, where great cooks gather to share recipes.
What have you brought today?
It's been a while since I've given you a kitchen update. The backsplash
has been installed.
I'm waiting for the beadboard panels to be installed. Below, you
can see where I tested various colors. (More later.)
And here is the good doctor, checking out the refrigerator.
The beadboard panels have been painted BM Fieldstone.
I'm inching forward, trying to decide about the kitchen's style direction.
I do like black and white, which will allow me to decorate with tartan reds and greens in Christmas
and pink in the springtime. It's safe, will work with just about all tablescapes, and I like that.
I like the Madeline counter stool from Restoration Hardware.
In the breakfast room, we're adding a bay window.
I am drawn to upholstered chairs (I know).
Love chairs from Ballard Designs, too. I could order several slips--and I can
choose the finish on the legs.
Adorable pleated slips.
And then I saw this photo on Pinterest. I tracked it down.
The furniture is made by Baker. The chairs are dark, but not black.
Love the shape. Wonder if they are comfortable?
I found another inspiration photo and tracked the source. The furniture is, or was, made by Lexington. I love the white slips and dark wood.
It just so happens that I have a roundish table, though it will need painting.
(Hello, Spring and fresh air for DIY projects!)
Below, you can see a little bit of the breakfast room. Excuse the refrigerator. The room was been painted BM Simply White, and a bay window will be added.
Do you think it'll work?

Every Friday, we are joined at this big, virtual table--thank you for stopping by today. I'm grateful to all of you who spend your days cooking. I'm grateful to old and new friends who contribute recipes every week. I'm grateful to friends who leave a comment. I'm grateful for the silent folks, because you are brought here by your love of all things culinary. We are food people. And that's a marvelous thing.
