A Thank-you and 3 Tips for Functional Decorating in the Kitchen11:55 PM
I hadn't checked my blog in a few days, and came back to all of this love. First of all, let me say thank-you to Kim at Savvy Southern Style and Beth at Home Stories A to Z for the features from last week's link parties. I feel so honored for being featured amongst so many other beautiful projects. If you have a minute go check out the other projects. I also want to thank everyone who came here to see more, became a follower, and those who commented! Not everyone outside the bloggy world understands the legwork that goes into a DIY project, so I appreciate those of you who get as excited as I do. I hope that you will become a follower of the blog because I have lots more to share!
3 Tips for Functional Decorating in the Kitchen
In the meantime, I wanted to talk about kitchen counters. Here is a glimpse of one side of my kitchen. I tend to rearrange mine frequently, but I have narrowed down what I put on them to functional items. What I have realized though, is that the functional can also be beautiful.
1. Display bulk fruit in a decorative bowl.
2. Decant, decant, decant.
3. Display grains/pasta in glass jars
I know that you can get the Martha Stewart chalkboard labels at Staples, but I made mine with chalkboard contact paper which I also got from Hobby Lobby. And you can also find the chalk markers there too.
4. Bonus Tip: Bring in Plants
So much less expensive to snip some from your kitchen, rather than to buy at the store. My kitchen doesn't have any windows, but I am planning to put some herbs in my dining room window sill. I'll keep you posted.
