In The Kitchen


This is the time of year that most of us will be spending lots of time in our kitchens. I haven't shown mine in quite some time and there have been some little changes with more of my vintage finds being added. So I thought I would share what it has looked like before the Christmas stuff comes out.


view coming in from garage

My next big project is to paint these beat up black cabinets. You can see how worn the top of this cabinet door is due to opening it so much to put our trash in there.






 This is a fall arrangement I threw together several weeks ago. Soon it will be time to add Christmas.

You can see how I transformed this cow head here.













 I don't have a clue where Mr. Savvy got this meat grinder from, but he has had it forever.





 Some changes have been made on top of the cabinets.

My copper collection has been growing.





Got the top vintage copper mold from One Kings Lane months ago to add to my collection.

This is probably the last time to see the cow canvases. They have been replaced again and I will share what with soon.

Now get in that kitchen and bake.

  4. Kim...I was so fortunate to see your kitchen in person....the pictures are beautiful of all the wonderful things and vignettes you have...but I must say it is more magnificent in person!!....Your attention to detail is amazing and your collections require a tissue...a tissue to wipe the drool off faces!!

  5. I love your kitchen. Will you repaint the cabinets black again? Do you like the two toned look? I really like it in your space. I'm thinking of going with red and cream for my kitchen cabinets.

  8. Those poor cows, Kim. : ) Can't wait to see what you've put in their place. I'm looking forward to seeing your decorations, too. It's nice to see the change that is made when Christmas decor is added in.

  9. Kim, I think I love everything about your kitchen! I especially like the black cabinets on the bottom and white on the top. It's just beautiful. I SOOO need to paint over my dark stained cabinets. If only I could talk my husband into letting me!

  15. Looks great Kim. I like how you've displayed the scales above the cabinets.

    I really should find a cows head for our kitchen. It would fit right in.

  18. Looks so good Kim with all the cow rustic decor. I thought those canvases were moved already at the stair landing? I can't keep up, you probably moved them back and I forgot. Happy Thanksgiving:)

  31. Hi Kim, Everything looks fabulous! I love the cow prints but I know you hate it when we whine about keeping something where it is :-) Happy Thanksgiving!

  32. Love your kitchen Kim, it is so bright and cheery. The cow hand towel is so unique, I love it. I had black cabinets in my last house. I loved the look, but felt like I was constantly dusting them. So I went with a dark blue, almost black and that wasn't much better. I like how distressed your are, you could certainly get away without any touch ups.

  33. Your country french collections look great in there. I forgot what you were going to replace the cow canvases with. You'll have to remind me. I'm sure your kitchen will be buzzing later this week with your grand kids coming to visit too!

  44. Always a treat seeing your beautiful kitchen, Kim! How did I miss the new "Roosters" sign on your soffit? Love it. And, the new copper pieces you've added look wonderful. Of course, I'd still like to sneak one of your scales away for myself. Happy Thanksgiving!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great ideas here - we're in the process of remodeling our kitchen; the new granite for the countertops is very similar to yours. I love your distressed black bottom cabinets and light top cabinets. I may experiment with this look!! Love your scales, copper and tile back splash too! Happy Thanksgiving!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. If you are selling the cow canvas's please let me know!! I love them so!
    Your whole kitchen is so beautiful. I love the cow dishcloth too. Are the lower cabinets going to be painted black again?

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is such a pretty view of the kitchen! Seriously. I thought it was a magazine picture at first!

    Have a blessed and wonderful day!

  50. Love your kitchen. We just got new granite countertops and a new granite sink, it looks just like yours! One quick question. I painted my island black and was just wondering if yours is distressed and if so, do you like it? I am debating on whether or not to distress. Otherwise I am so loving it.

  61. I forgot how pretty your kitchen is, Kim. You have done such a nice job with it all the way around...from the paint to the cabinetry. I love that you are always changing stuff up a bit here and there. Hope you had a great Monday- xo Diana

  62. I love your kitchen Kim. I want to paint my top cabinets white and leave the bottoms red but haven't been able to convince my husband yet. I will have to show him your kitchen. As for the baking...soon.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Your kitchen is lovely! I have some black cabinets that are slated for a makeover too. What did you do with the cow canvases? They are great! Can't wait to see waht you put there though I'm sure it's just as great!

  74. Everything looks beautiful! What a warm and welcoming space.

  75. I love your collection of copper pots and pans and that cow head--cool! Also love the tea towel that shows all the parts of a cow. When I was growing up on a farm, I was in 4-H, and I had my bedroom closet door covered with a cow poster just like that, and one for lambs and pigs, so I could learn the names of all the different parts!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Love your kitchen! The "white' side is especially my favorite. I like how you have mixed the cabinet colors and all of the vintage touches you have added.
