I'm excited to show you some of the refreshing that I've done in our kitchen. We just had it repainted (yeah!) and with new paint comes a fresh new look. We don't have a large kitchen with the layout or cabinetry that I wish for, but even in small spaces, things can be done to make it aesthetically more pleasing and harder working for you.
Since I have limited drawer and cabinet space, I like to put the items I use frequently on the counter. Out in the open storage can go two ways; beautiful or cluttered. My hope is to create non cluttered counters, but still having things handy when needed.
To accomplish this, I have previously purchased some items to help with that.
One is this beautiful mug rack from Magnolia Market.
Another item I added was a rack for mail. We bring in the mail and set it on the counter. Instead of having mail cluttering the counters, I now have a designated holding spot off of the counter to hold it until I can later go through it.
It has been working out well.
So, when I ran across this 3 tier piece at Home Goods, I had to have it! It was a perfect addition to my counter and an easy way to corral things in a beautiful way.
I'm going to use the bottom to store our fresh fruit at the ready.
The middle and top are going to house my towels, straws, and plants.
I collect these small silver cups from antique stores and use them for plants or to corral little things. I just love that I can use them and display them in my kitchen.
This smiley face mug was a find at my local antique store as well. I had a yellow one as a kid and just love that I found it in white to go with my others in my white mug collection.
The 3 tier is hard-working, but beautiful.
I changed out my red berry basket for a white one to corral my kitchen sink supplies.
Lastly, I saw these white rain boot salt and pepper shakers and a white mason jar spoon rest at Home Goods. Another had to have.
All in all, I am so pleased with the little touches I did to refresh my kitchen.
I am contemplating some larger changes with cabinetry, but for now. I am content.
