What is Take 5 you ask…well it is a collection of 5 things that I think you will all enjoy! It can be themed…random…food…crafts…home decor and everything in between. Hopefully you will love them enough to take 5 minutes out of your busy day… relax and enjoy! Today I ask you this question…would your kitchen enjoy a little
Cottage Fresh Facelift?
This is the first in a continuing series of
Little Face Lifts!
Here are 5 simple ideas that will lift your kitchens spirits…one just might be perfect for yours!
How about putting up a few crisp white shelves or any color or colors that you enjoy and add some of your pretty bowls…glasses….trays and more…show them off instead of having them in the closet. This open shelving area is a quick and inexpensive way of adding a bit of color and happiness to your space.
Maybe convert a few of your cabinets…even just one to a beautiful glass pane door…It adds such a light an airy look and a great place to show off some of your finest pieces! Oh and by the way…hanging a special little basket on the handle or maybe a vintage tea towel or apron is not a bad idea either!
No major renovation but a very rewarding little pick-me-up!
Thank you Rusty Hinge!
Here is something perfect for any cottage kitchen…Hang plate rack and just add your favorite plates…not need for pairs or matching sets…all shapes…sizes…patterns and colors and created your own little display of cottage happiness!
How about adding a little collection to your kitchen? Maybe some interesting vintage rolling pins? They would look awesome hung…tucked into a basket or maybe even part of vignette? The possibilities are endless and fun!
Then there is the idea of creating a beautiful vignette with many of your fabulous finds…family heirlooms or items that you picked up from the latest thrift shop visit. Oh the drama you can create on a counter…Vibeke Design created a mini vintage masterpiece here…hope it inspired you!
Yes…I can count : ) Just had to add this to the list of quick little face lifts!!! : )
I LOVE this idea! Turn one of your cabinet doors into a chalkboard! In less than an hour you have a new focal spot that will be used over and over again and it looks amazing. I think taking the time to decorate it with some chalk art makes it 10 times more special! Thank you My Desert Cottage for this great little inspiration!
There you have it for this evening. Now that was painless right! There are so many quick and easy ways to give a fresh new little glow to your decor! Plenty more styles and rooms to visiting so stay tuned! : )
