Black and White Kitchen Ideas with Buffalo Checked Fabric
Recently I shared some quick and easy way to DIY faux black and white enamelware along with some fun kitchen decorating ideas on our open shelving pantry. Today, I am back and very excited to share how I added some buffalo checked fabric to accent the enamelware, along with adding a few more decorative enamelware pieces I added to the collection. Also if you like the look of enamelware bakeware and dishes I am sharing a quick and easy way to turn your dishes into faux enamelware. Be sure to check that out at the end of this post. Don’t you love how Black and white are two such colors that make such a bold and beautiful visual statement and do so in any design style of any kitchen. I especially love how it looks on our open shelving pantry which is one of the first thing you see when you come into our kitchen area.
Besides the fact that I love the black and white enamelware, I truly love the black and white buffalo check fabric and how it adds so much more to this display. Fabric can be so expensive as we all know! Instead of buying fabric by the yard I buy fabric table clothes. I have several buffalo checked fabric table cloths in different colors I use just for decorating purposes, they are a lot cheaper than buying it by the yard.
How to decorate with Black and White Buffalo Checked Fabric
To add the buffalo checked fabric like I mentioned, I used a tablecloth I had leftover from my Christmas decorations ( yes I decorated my kitchen area in black and white if you would like to see that you can see that here,) I simply cut and measured enough from the tablecloth and ran a bead of hot glued around the inside edges the front inset section of the wooden basket tray. I used hot glue mainly because behind the fabric is a chalk board, so if I ever decide to use the chalkboard again, it can be easily removed.
For the faux enamel bucket a rectangular piece of buffalo fabric was cut, edges were frayed by pulling a few strands out around all sides of material. To adhere it to the bucket mod podge was used. A strip of the checked fabric ties on the small faux enamel scoop. To see how to create Faux enamel you can go here for the full tutorial on how DIY Faux Enamelware, there I also shared the pitcher where I simply wrapped and tied a wide band of the material to the mid section.
Here you can see the few new enamel pieces dessert bowls, grater, and sifter and a tall decorative pitcher.
How to Fake Enamel Bakeware and Dishes
The dessert bowls on the top shelf use to have a yellow band around the tops and the bakeware had blue bands, since I like my home decor to match and wanted to display them along side all my other kitchen decor, I decided to make those colors black.
