I love the combination of crisp red and white, and I’ve pulled these two colors into my kitchen. So far, I’ve refinished my stools (white legs and a red vinyl top), I’ve painted some of the trim white and have red curtains above the patio door, and I have quite a few red and white accents around the room. What I really wanted to make was a red and white striped sink skirt. Finding the fabric was difficult, but I finally purchased it at IKEA. With my handy-dandy sewing machine, I whipped up the sink skirt.
The kitchen sink area used to look like this:
Anyways, the crown molding across the sink was revamped, the window trim was painted white, the walls of course were painted a light vintage blue, and the cupboard doors under the sink were taken down and replaced with the sink skirt.
Here’s what it looks like now:
And now for your opinion: Should I paint the rectangle above the skirt white? Like this:
Or like this:
Or just have a stencil pattern, like this:
So what’s your opinion? I’m open to any ideas. The above pics are just samples, and I’m not in any way set on them. I’d love to hear from you!
