Our Kitchen Awning

My sweet husband made me an awning for my kitchen! He did it awhile ago, but I kept waiting for the counters to be clean and the sink to be empty to take a picture! I don't think that will ever happen, so the sink is full right now, but just focus on the awning!


Marcus just got some corrugated metal and then made a frame for it. The bottom scallop is wood. I traced a saucer to get the size I wanted, then he cut it out.


This is the space before the awning. Kind of nekkid:


When he first put it up, I just painted it black and white. Still looked kind of nekkid to me.


So I added pink and green stripes. Pink and green make everything cuter, if you ask me! I already had the paint. The pink is from my dining room walls and the green is the same color as the kitchen walls.




Love it!

Now, I just need someone to do my dishes!

I am linking up to My Romantic Home's Show and Tell Friday!
Join the party!

That is so cute. I had a mobile home that I lived in for a while and my granddad made little awning similar to those for the outside windows on my trailer to help with the heat. Looks very cute in your kitchen.

HI! I just found this picture of your awning on pinterest. It is exactly what I want to do in my kitchen. My husband was wondering if you could post pictures of the side of the awning as he is not sure how it is attached to the wall. My email is msther73@gmail.com in case you cannot post to the blog. Thanks so much.

What a great idea for having an awning indoors.
Also putting an awning on the outside of the window can keep you home free from glare in the summer and also keep the Temperature down on the hot sunny days.
