Hi everyone, and welcome to our family kitchen! the kitchen is very spacious and easy to move in. We can enjoy a meal right in the kitchen, its been quite a while since we were able to eat right in the kitchen. I will take you on a little tour.
The walls are painted a soft yellow and everything has been reused or re purposed from our other home. The kitchen table is new/used that Gary and I found at a used furniture store in town. We love this table it has green legs and a yellow top. The chandelier we purchased from our favorite antique store in town it was gold and missing a few crystals. I spray painted it white and purchased a few new crystals, I am very happy with the way it turned out.
Awe! and this lovely new cupcake folk art painting was designed by Catherine Holman visit her here
. I love Catherine's designs very much and wanted one for our new kitchen, and look at the pretty colors she uses. The cupcakes look so real, they make me hungry! LOL. I have had so many compliment's on this art piece. Thank you Catherine so much for painting this for us.
I' m sure you noticed the black and white toil tea pot light under the cupcake art, that used to be sitting on the counter in our other kitchen, designed by Penny visit her here
. Love her work! its a treasured piece of art for our kitchen.
Oops I'm jumping around a bit, sorry, so back to the kitchen table. I wanted to show you close up the pretty details of the table. The sweet plate with the dome sitting on the middle of the table was made by Tina visit her here
. I love this plate its so cheerful.
The center island began as the bottom to a hutch that has been in our family for 40 years. Gary and I painted the sides in a deep yellow and added the back paneling. We also added the side towel holder and painted it red, added new handles and distressed the wood. We also added the butcher block counter top. We are happy the way it turned out. I just love it when we can re-purpose something that holds a lot of memories.
The kitchen curtains match the chair pads. I used four large dinner napkins for the curtains.
The Bon Appetit sign above the door was designed by Paula visit her here
. I have many signs around our home from Paula, I adore her work and I am a big fan...
Our inspiration for the chalk board was from Kim visit her here
, we love all the same colors,thank you Kim! Our daughters came for a visit this weekend and left us the sweetest note! We love you too girls, more than you can ever imagine that our hearts over flow with joy every time we see your beautiful faces XXOO.
The blue and white tea cup that is holding the chalk was a gift from my dear friend Jackie.. I think the tea cup is just the cutest ever...
