Redecorating my kitchen

For some reason last night I got a bee in my bonnet
to wash down the walls in my kitchen and do a little
redecorating. I didn't purchase a thing. Just went
shopping in my own home.
I wish I had taken before pictures because it really
does look a lot different. Not near as much
*stuff* and focused mainly on white with a little
sea glass color to accent. I am pleased with the way it turned out.

This canister is on hubby's *coffee station* {will show that another time}
It holds different coffees and teas.

I totally redid this shelf. Stripped everything
off of it and plopped it all on the table and
started over.

I got this tiny wreath at Meijer several weeks ago. It is boxwood and I love it.

A favorite chair

I have had this bookcase for quite some time and it
was loaded down with vintage pink print tablecloths
and other goodies so once again I just took
everything off and started over.
I really would like a chippy , white bench here,
but haven't found one yet so this will work for now.

I love my brick. When we first moved here it was
gray and tannish color with black grout! Ugh! Never liked that , but I do now.
I did a makeover on it several years ago.

In a perfect world I would have white cupboards
and chairs, floor etc., but it is just not feasible
especially living on a dirt road so...once again...
make do and I am happy.

I know these aren't white , but had to add them at
the end of the post. This is sitting in the middle of
my table. Thought I had taken a picture of the
table, but I guess not. The plan is to put a flower
in each one...when I get some flowers. lol.

I hope you enjoyed a little peek at my kitchen today. I am loving the sparse look of it. {compared to what it was}

Please join Kathleen over at Faded Charm for more

White Wednesdays posts.

Blogger is giving me fits tonight...grrrr. Thus the reason for the

double spacing etc...wish they would fix it.

Very pretty makeover. I love to "shop at home, too". You might think I cheat, however, because my basement is home to many things leftover from shoots and it's a mini prop shop.

Olivia said...

Oh my heavens what beauty I see in our vignettes! Love those shabby frames! I think I need to get off the computer and get a bee in my bonnet!
