a shabby vintage kitchen ... ♥


grab a cup of tea ... this post is picture heavy :)
besides my craft room this is where i spend most of my time...
my kitchen♥

this picture was taken when we moved in:


here it is now!
i'm so glad you're here! come on in :)





hubs built these corner shelves 
in what would have been a wasted space
they house a lot of my vintage dishes & some serving pieces


Goodwill find last year ... i love these canisters 
the knobs were already painted that pretty green


i like the idea of things stored in wire baskets ... i'm on the lookout for more



the pot rack was from Hobby Lobby
i still have a few pans from my set to accquire
computer desk on the back window is where i connect with all of you ♥


a perpetual calendar & some old cook books


i wish i had a before picture of this lazy susan :)
but here it is now, all nice and pretty


this is the view walking through from the other side, which is my craft space











this is my favorite part of the kitchen
the open cabinets ... we decided to leave them open at the last minute
i'm so glad we did!
even though i would like to take the middle bars out of each section
 ... still have to convince the hubs :)



the tea cups are hung from a stainless steel curtain rod


 more wire baskets ... for more service and some pot holders


an old cheese box with sugars, salt & peppers


my grandma's china ♥





hubby & his dad put a new sink in when they tiled the counters
i spend a lot of time in front of it ... what mom doesn't right?
the little ledge near the windowsill holds herbs, 
to do lists & bible passages i'm trying to remember or reflect on
(or flowers the hubs brings me on occasion :)
i wrote about that little ledge here


this is another small curtain rod, hung on the side of the sink area
keeps kitchen towels out of the way (most of the time :)


this is our command central
in & out papers, lunchboxes, and everyday life happens here



the "masterpieces" strip was made from yardsticks & clothespins
two of my favorite things ♥
my menu board is an old frame wrapped in vintage sheets
it's a free printable from here



the baskets are for recycling ~ shredding ~ reading ~ keeping
i used the same label frames i used in my craft space here


a tiny peek into my living room ...






thanks for comin' along on my little house tour ♥
hope you enjoyed!

much love & gladness in my ♥ !

  11. Your kitchen is beautiful! I have a quick question for you. We are going to be tiling our kitchen countertops - what size tile did you use on yours, and is the grout hard to keep clean? Not too many people have tiled counters, so I haven't had much luck finding any advice.

  12. Your Kitchen is just beautiful! You did a wonderful job! I am one of the two lucky winners of your pretty little box full of pretty things. I love them! Thank you so much. Please say a prayer for me, I woke up a week ago to a pinched nerve in my neck that has proceeded to my back and down my left arm and hand. Right now I really cant use my left hand. I had an MRI (had to have a shot of morphine just to get through it and I'm not used to strong drugs so it made me very sick) and it is a severe pinched nerve. I half to have surgery. Pretty scared. Thanks for listening.

  13. What a space! I'd love to sip a cuppa tea here while you baked cookies. It just seems like that kind of kitchen. Love the open cabinets with all the pretty yet useful stuff inside. I'm too messy to be able to expose all of my stuff like that!!

  15. I love your wall colors! What are they? The purple and the tan? Also, did you make the knitted wash cloths in the blue bunt cake pan? I love those too, do you have a pattern, and yarn colors? Thanks.

  17. Your make over is just delightful! So light and airy and so efficient! I am going to take your idea of the wire basket for your cook books! Perfect! Mine keep falling over and that will solve the problem!

  28. That is fabulous! I love your style! I think the way you removed the cabinet doors on the one section is great! Makes me want to sit in the kitchen, drinking a good cup of coffee while waiting for my cookies to finish! Would love for you to share at the Pomp Party! http://www.createcraftlove.com/2012/09/pomp-party-35.html

  29. I love all your vintage touches throughout the kitchen. I'm not sure I could do the open cabinets though - I like to hide my messiness :) Stop by my blog in a few days. I'm doing a post on my home office later this week and it has lots of vintage items in it.

It's my first time visiting your blog...what I luv about your blog is the special and clean touch that you have for details in decorating....it's not my particular style but you are so creative and resourceful that anyone can learn from you and you can tell that if we visited your home we would feel special and well cared for...May the Lord richly bless you and your family and keep you safe in His will for 2013~Jenny Arzola at Yahoo.com
