Kitchen Changes

I have made a few changes in my kitchen over the last week or so. I moved my green pie safe out (I'll show that another day) and brought in my bench and column that was in the dining room. I am using the bench at the table instead of one of the chairs and I angled the table and put the column behind it. I brought in my metal trellis piece from outside and hung it on the wall along with 2 painted canvases and 2 rooster plates. I already had all of this stuff and just brought it in from other places. I am enjoying the change and feel like I have a new eating area. Hope you are having a great week!

Okay, I absolutely love everything about that, but that valance is stunning. Is that Wavery La Petite Ferme? I have a Waverly fixation. :)

GOOORGEOUS!!!!!

Lisa said...

Oh, and I just have to add... I just asked hubby if he would build be a shelf like you have above your window, and he said, "Of course I will... that's easy." Woohoo! Now, just to get him on board with changing out the valance... hmm...

I really love the bench with the pillows. So beautiful!
I wonder if I can get away with that with three boys-I am imagining smears of food on those pillows...Hmmm....

That is amazing! I love the column with the plates on it. Your bench is to die for. Don't you love it when you realize that you can move things around and come up with something new like that?!

I do like the bench at the table -- but I love that bench, covet it and wish I had a place for a bench like that. I also like the column -- great piece.

Angie, I love the changes you made! It looks so pretty! That must be some big apothecary jar to get a bunny in it! Love that! I think I hav a small bunny that will fit into my small jar. You didn't join the bunny on a stick party! I think you were the first to use those bunnies.

Anyway, I love what you did - it looks like a cozy place to hang out after a meal!

I love the white column against the red wall. And the little shelf to hold the rooster plate is neat.

It's all quite lovely. Isn't it fun to "shop" our own stuff? I enjoy doing that. And it doesn't cost a thing!

A Love Worth Waiting For said...

I just wanted you to know that my Mom LOVES your blog!! I went out of town for 2 weeks and came home to find that she had pretty much re-decortated our house. It looked a lot like your still so I asked her if she had been on your blog. (I have a link to your blog on my blog) and she said, "Yes, Lyndsie I just LOVE her blog!!" It was cute! Just wanted to let you know how much we have both enjoyed your blog! Take care!

I just love your kitchen, your colors are some that I have in my family room and kitchen. I keep noticing your valance above your window that shelf above that window did you do it or was it there when you purchased your home. I want to learn how to make my own for my windows in my kitchen.
