As I mentioned in my previous post, on Monday we began a major kitchen renovation, so naturally I've been scouring the interwebs for inspiration as to how I can make a new kitchen feel “not so new.”
Here are some images I came across…
I'm now noticing that every single one of the images I posted contain an eat in kitchen in some way, shape or form…which unfortunately will not work for us since our kitchen is tinier than you can imagine. Â Really. Â But a girl can dream. Â So I will dream about old farm tables, mixed matched chairs, beautiful vintage inspired pendant lighting and vintage rugs. Â Over all a not-so-perfect, perfect kitchen. Â One thing I would have done different if space would have allowed would be to have open shelving instead of upper cabinets. Â BUT, what I can do is add vintage touches with vintage pottery, old tins, vintage trays and maybe a large chalkboard made from an old frame. Â And you can bet I'll be shopping for most of these items at the fabulous Gather & Collect;) Â It's times like these when having a store comes in real handy! Â The details of a space usually come together slowly for me because I like to find things that are just right instead of rushing into anything. Â But I can be patient…sometimes;)
So, tell me…what are some ways you have made your new kitchen feel not-so-new? Â Do tell.
Cheers to a vintage life well lived.
