I finally got around to accessorizing in the kitchen! For a whole year after moving in, I didn’t even think about doing cute things in there because I knew I wanted to paint the walls, cabinets, etc.
But now those things are done, and I’m free to decorate 🙂
I stopped by the ReStore, Hobby Lobby, and Goodwill the other day and found some serious treasure. I didn’t even redo any of it, I liked everything so much. Add that to a couple of finds from Tuesday Morning, and it looks like a welcoming and warm living space.
Above the cabinets is where most of the decor is. I don’t want the counters to get too cluttered because it just makes them harder to wipe off. I’m already annoyed by the toaster that sits out and looks all crumby (ha – get it!) I wish I had a corner cabinet to put an appliance garage under, but our corner cabinet is the cheap kind – a huge rectangle box that goes waaaay back into the corner.
My general thought on kitchen decor was to lean toward a certain color scheme of greens, reds, browns, and whites. And, since those colors remind me of a country style rooster image, rooster and chicken designs were my secondary goal (but I’m not saying that too loudly because I have witnessed the avalanche of pigs that descended on my mom’s kitchen after she decided she was decorating with pigs!!!)
And a little mish-mash “vignette” (uh, pile?) that includes some plants and another Tuesday Morning find. I know it’s fall-ish, but I really like it, so it’ll just be the first taste of fall decor in our house 🙂
