Never underestimate the power of a bunch of grocery store blooms~!
I love the color and life they bring to the kitchen. They make me smile when I walk in.
This three tiered stand was something I had my eye on for a while but every time I saw if for sale on one of the sites I follow it would sell out before I could make the purchase. Very sad. I managed to find one on Home Depot's site (of all places?!) and couldn't be happier about the addition to my kitchen. It holds summer necessities; melamine plates, plastic cups, straws, and extra lemons and limes to add to a cool glass of ice water or selzter.
My chalkboard got some love from a chalk paint pen. After many trials and errors and having to repaint the chalk board (ugh!), because I couldn't get the chalk paint pen off, I have discovered that I can use a chalk pen and clean it off with Mr. Clean Eraser. Yay!
|Remember the colander I used as a planter early spring?|
On the other side of the room all was cleaned up and the feeling of space and freshness made me breathe easier.
I am pretty sure it does not look like this now!
The kitchen is enjoying summer and so am I. I think I will grab some lemonade, a book and enjoy the day and the idea of my kitchen being in order.
