Welcome to my new kitchen!
New light fixtures from Restoration Hardware, one bought at a local Downeast Home outlet at a discounted price...score!
I LOVE the painted table. The new antique distressed white brightened up the eating area for a nice clean feel.
I took off the old curtains, and will eventually sew some new ones, but I like the bare windows for winter, letting in lots of light.
I had painted the accent cabinets black when we moved in, but I wanted to brighten everything up, so I painted over the black for all white cabinets.
New polished nickel hardware was bought on ebay for $1 each. I drilled in the drawer pulls extra tight, as many of our drawer fronts were loose or falling off altogether. Much more sturdy for the many little hands that pull and hang on them.
I organized my herbs and spices, using IKEA shelving and containers. I previously had them stuffed into a small cabinet, and every time I reached for a jar, everything fell out! So, now I have the ones I use most filled and in view. Perfecto!
I removed the black drawers and replaced them with our tea cup collection. They were just too pretty to hide any longer. Tea anyone?
That's all for today...more of the home tour to come?
Well, there is more in the works, but alas...December is upon us,
so I must turn my creative energy toward gift-making!
