All of the items on the top of the cabinets are things I already had around the house, mostly given to me as wedding presents. Most of these things I had kept stowed away in my dining hutch, but no more! Now, not only is my kitchen prettier, but I have more room for utilitarian things in the hutch. I did purchase 6 dollars worth of plate stands, as I couldn't find any other way to display them.
I would eventually love to make a rag rug for the floor, preferably in reds and golds. Our apartment is mostly in those shades, but I love the blue in the kitchen! I would love to paint the walls a cranberry red to balance the kitchen's colors with the rest of the apartment, but red paint would be too hard to cover up when we try to leave, and we don't really want to deal with the hassle of painting the kitchen anyway.
I'm so happy to work in a more clutter free environment. With the space being so small, it was getting difficult with all my stuff on the counters!
Thanks for stopping by! :-) To see the before pictures, see my previous post, "Accepting my Kitchen, Pt. 1"
