Is your kitchen a fun place to be? I sure hope so. Most of us spend lots of time there. When people come to the Farmhouse…they generally go straight to the kitchen. I am good with that. I try to make our kitchen a happy place to be. Most of you probably remember, a couple of months back, when we painted our kitchen. I love it…so much. The white just makes everything stand out. Do me a favor. If your paint color doesn’t make you happy…change it. Paint is really an inexpensive face lift. Save back a few bucks a week and you will have enough, before you know it, to buy paint. I promise, you will love it!
Sometimes, when I go junking, I have a hard time saying no to kitchen junk. It’s my absolute fave. I love vintage kitchen things to decorate with. The thing about that it, I love a simple look, so I have to make sure that I am choosey.
I have probably already told you this, sometimes I forget…after all of these posts, but a while back I weeded out my kitchen. I took the things off the tops of the cabinets that I didn’t really love and kept only the things that I really needed on the counters. Do you ever watch Sarah Carey cooking videos? I get those sent to my email. I know that it’s a test kitchen of sorts, but I love the simplicity. I love the little pots of herbs and the utensils.
I have a challenge for you. Walk into your kitchen and clear out anything that doesn’t make you happy. I promise…you will love it. It will make you feel like you just took a deep breath.
When we painted our kitchen I decided to take the plates out of the plate rack that had been there for years. I got a wild hair and replaced them with some of my favorite cookbooks. I love the difference. Looking at all of the bright colors against the white, makes me feel happy.
As you can tell, this is not so much a DIY blog. It’s really just more about inspiration. If photos of our home and the way that things can be arranged put a little idea in your head…then my job is done. Those are the blogs I love. The ones with good photography and inspiration. BTW: I have been trying to figure out the color that I want to keep for my badge. I’m kind of digging the gray. We shall see. 🙂
I hope that your kitchen makes you feel happy,
