I've been slowly changing out the decor in my kitchen and re-doing the accessories.
I'm wanting to go for a more mod country look instead of a retro country look. The color scheme I'm aiming for is green, white, black, and browns- very earthy and clean looking.
Since I tend to have this desire to want to re-do things around my home often, I'm all about thrifty finds.
MOPS in Brenham had a garage sale last weekend and I hit the jackpot! I even found a few gifts for people. I love a cute gift for $3!!!
There was a box full of old kitchen gadgets that were green and metal.
In the photo below, the white flower pot is filled with the cute gadgets that I purchased. I also got those biscuit cutters and metal measuring cups.
I had the jars and metal tray already so I re-purposed all of this to go with my new look.
I also purchased these metal measuring scoops and this white little pot below.
Here are the photos of my shelves by my sink that I have redone. I had all of this around the house except the apple topiaries ($5 at TJ Max) and frames.
I still need fabric for valances above the windows so if you have any cute ideas, send them my way! I don't know if I should go with brown, black, white or green.
My sister sent a blog my way last week that you should go check out! I love her style over at The Old Painted Cottage. This was my inspiration for my kitchen. A lot of our bones are the same. Her kitchen is beyond beautiful.
I have my computer back at my house, so I'm going to be posting regularly again!
