Painted Kitchen Rug :: Inspiration Wednesdays

Lets just say my kitchen rug has seen better days.  I bought it when we first moved in 3 1/2 years ago when our kitchen was still dark red from the previous owners.  Well since then there have been a lot of changes downstairs and I’m getting sick of looking at it.  So today I’ve been looking for inspiration for a new kitchen rug.

I love this one from Bed Bath and Beyond but the $40 price tag isn’t quite in my budget.  So maybe a little bit of DIY is needed in this situation and there are lots of great sites out there with tutorials!

Now I just have to decide exactly what I want to do.  Hummm……

Oh how I love new kitchen toys!

Anyone who knows me well enough knows that I am a BIG sucker for REALLLY bright colors!  The bottom floor of our home is decorated in shades of bright blues and deep oranges with a little splash of lime here and there.  Not only do I love the brighter colors but I also have a big problem of collecting kitchen accessories.  The mister and I may have picked up an extra gadget or two just because they happened to be in a fun color.  You know who has the cutest colorful kitchen accessories??  Rachael Ray of course!  While watching her show the other morning I spotted this:

OHH YES!!!  As I gave my old EVOO dispenser (which has a small crack down the side) the evil eye, it new it’s days were numbered.  I’m pleased to say I have a new friend in the kitchen!!!
