(sorry about the picture quality)
WARNING: Picture intensive post!!!!! (I think I got a tiny bit over zealous!)
So a couple of months ago I decided I really hated my kitchen curtains and needed some new ones. Simple right? Ha, wrong! I then found a burlap table runner that I loved and it was so easy for me to make that I had to run out to Joanne's right then and get the burlap. Then I discovered that burlap is often used in French Farmhouse decor. Well, after searching French Farmhouse, I stumbled upon French Country and it was love, instantly! You see how a total kitchen re-do can occur because of new curtains right? I am not crazy or anything, right?
We completely remodeled our kitchen several years ago which included knocking out a wall to combine the kitchen and dining areas, getting new oak cupboards, and new laminate flooring. Plus, we just painted the kitchen yellow last year and I already had cobalt blue accents and roosters. Some how, I just never tire of roosters, ha!
So here's some of what I have added:
new clock and a vintage inspired rooster print
a lovely french sign from this Esty seller
French Farmhouse baskets from my site filled with faux pears and lavender (I hand made the burlap rosette)
vintage inspired wire basket filled with new and vintage cookie cutters
a wire basket center piece with apples and Fleur DE Lis votive holders from Yankee Candle (though I often fill them with flowers)
love, love, love these farm house prints from this eBay seller
burlap pillows on my new bench - see that number 3 pillow - if you read my blog regularly you know I have triplets and I couldn't turn down this muslin pillow - it spoke to me, ya know
toile ware juicer and salt and pepper shakers - I actually use that juicer quite often - who knew
enamelware utensil holder with a Graphics Fairy silverware transfer using the Citrasolv method which I will share in a later post (super, duper easy)
a cluster of French Country adornments - I made the chalk board myself and I will share that too - of course you can find that all over blog land
more GF graphics inserted into a frame I painted and distressed
a nice vignette of more FC decor including roosters and paper hydrangeas
more roosters of course
a view of my table with my homemade burlap runner
fresh fruit to add to that FC feel
vintage blue ball jars filled with silverware
so I could do this with my spices - no more endless searches, yay~
rooster canisters because what else would you expect, ha
and of course some fresh flowers in a vintage ball jar.
Thanks for taking the tour today. I just realized that I didn't add pictures so you can see the entire kitchen. Sorry about that.
Have a wonderful week!
