Mon Beau Tapis De Cuisine

The moment I saw it I knew it would be the PERFECT mat for my kitchen!  I knew it would look great nestled up against the matte black cabinets and blend flawlessly with my other bistro décor.  This rug arrived to my doorstep this afternoon, which resulted in an excited squeal and careful tearing into the box.

Isn't it gorgeous?  The size, shape and chalkboard menu design is pure perfection under my kitchen sink.  It will protect the hardwood, and adds a French flair.

Bon appetit indeed!  I find this mat inspiring - perhaps I'll dust off that old French cookbook and create culinary masterpieces ...

... I think I will start by making the "Gateau au Chocolat"!

I love my mat.  It is easy to clean and is comfortable to stand on, but it has an intense rubber smell to it which I hope will dissipate soon.   By the way, my kitchen is not ever as clean as it is in this photo.  Just keepin' it real.

The rug is perfection! You have an eye for details. Pretty wood floor too!

Thank you, ladies! Right now the mat is airing out in the garage - which now smells like a tire store.

Ah! The smell of fresh tires! I love it! Oh! That is not the smell you were looking for?

Ooooo...I want to put in my order! I love little treats like a new kitchen mat. Makes the mundane feel like a ritual.
