Fearless Friday, Kitchen Redo with Art



With the kitchen freshly painted I wanted to change out the art work

make it more masculine,  a “chef’s kitchen”

The florals came down and up went some framed watercolors of food





HH and HHjr both love to cook so I have learned to share





A plump ice cream sundae pillow sits on the chair by the stairs





I found this rustic sign on clearance at Hobby Lobby





Now, I’m not going all farmhouse rustic here,

but I couldn’t resist this chicken with nails for feet

and the galvanized pig silhouette





There’s a lot of pork that comes out of this kitchen!





I did this chefs painting when HHjr developed a passion for cooking





This wall is adjacent to the area I use as my studio





This drippy vignette disguises the cords running down the wall from the TV





The drippy bucket is a catch all for all the remotes

and the old plastic kleenex box cover got a face lift






HH says I will paint anything that doesn’t move…





 This is inexpensive chalky paint from the craft store,

slap on a few coats until the surface is covered to your liking






Now the fun begins!






Using a popsicle stick, dip and drizzle!





You’ve got to be fearless here, if you try too hard or hesitate

it won’t create an effortless natural dripping effect





You can easily redecorate and update any area simply by changing out the artwork




Using Command Strips to hang lighter pictures

makes it possible to remove them without wall damage



These strips are widely available, in many different sizes for various weights


 Be Fearless and move some art around

or give something a funky face lift!



Here are some other household things you can recreate with a little paint


Custom Candlesticks


Little Miss Fancy


Mongram Side Table

    Love your fearless approach and ideas Jenna! Great, fun kitchen redo!

  2. Wonderful collection of foodie art, the chef’s painting is marvelous.

  3. There is so much to love here, Jenna. At first, I thought it was your stairway wall. And then I saw your shelves with the colorful legs and the drippy pieces and fell in love. And then noticed all the wondrous detail in Mr. Apron’s tribute painting and thought — “that says it all.” I love the look, every idea and the finished bits. And I know what good food will come out of it with all the additional inspiration!

  4. Your home looks amazing with your art pieces! I love your gallery on the stairs!! It’s so nice that you have your own work to add to your home. I know your family loves it.

    Sometimes I wish I could throw caution to the wind and be half as fearless as you, Jenna. Looks great. Happy weekend.
