By now you may have seen most of my farmhouse kitchen reveal. The final thing I would like to show you is in the far corner behind the peninsula.
This little aqua cupboard is a piece I picked up at an estate sale several years ago. It was this color when I bought it and I didn’t have to do a thing to it other than fill it with treasures.
And fill it I have!
I previously had a hodge podge of mostly vintage dishes and glassware displayed inside. I have a small but growing collection of brown transferware that was scattered here and there, mostly unnoticed. I wasn’t doing it justice so I decided that the aqua cupboard was the perfect home for it. I love the visual impact that grouping a collection brings.
One of the amazing things about the cupboard is the way it was made.
The inside has stair step notches running from top to bottom on each side. The notches allow for every possible shelf adjustment imaginable.They don’t make them like they used to!
My favorite piece in the collection is this bowl that my mom used next to her kitchen sink to hold her sponge.
I wouldn’t say I’m on the hunt for more brown transferware, but if I just happen to come across any at a rock bottom price I’ll make room for it in my collection.
Hey! Just popping in to say that I hope you’re having an inspired week! Things always take longer than planned when it comes to DIY. Not surprisingly, I am not quite ready to show the full kitchen reveal. But it really is coming soon! Very soon!
In the meantime, I will show you a very quick peek of one area.
I told you it was quick!
As soon as I finish stocking my coffee station, tidy up my mail center and make my red amaryllis white, I will start snapping pics. I keep seeing other things I want to do to the kitchen, but I’m holding myself to those 3 things! The other ideas can and will be implemented later after I’ve had a chance to live with it for a while.
I’m soooo cloooose to having the kitchen “reveal worthy”. Along with a fresh paint color I’ve been “farmhouse-izing” by adding in some rustic elements and just changing things up a bit. I’m just finishing up a couple of projects and should be ready to take pictures in a week or so. Yay!
One of the projects I’m working on needs a decision before it can be complete. That’s where you come in! I can’t decide on these two styles of farmhouse kitchen hooks to use for this . . . “thing”. Keeping you in suspense (ha) about what it is going to be, but I love both styles of hooks. Which ones have more of a farmhouse vibe? And more specifically a French farmhouse?
I’m having a hard time making a decision, waffling between the two. I am in love with both! Help a girl out and let me know your thoughts will you?
