I really haven’t changed up the kitchen cabinets or the counter top since Kendra helped me redo the kitchen back in March. I didn’t really do anything to the inside of the cabinets.
Some of you have wondered about dust inside the open cabinets. Well, I’ll be honest with you. I just don’t worry about it. I never take anything out of there that has dust on it. I just leave things be.
If I ever see dust, then I will take things out and clean. But so far I haven’t had an issue with dust inside the open cabinets.
In the above photo I basically just changed things up a little and took the pitchers out of the tray and instead put them in a dough board. I like the contrast of white against wood.
Many times I have moved these two wood cutting boards around the counter tops and always bring them right back to this spot. This is where they look best.
And the tallest cutting board is too tall to go under the cabinets, so this little spot is really perfect for it.
I went through my things in the closet and came up with these two galvanized containers that in the past I have used to hang on the wall.
But you know what? Just because that’s the purpose of the hole in the top does not mean you have to hang it. Instead try arranging it in a vignette on a flat surface. I actually like it better this way.
Every area, I think, needs a touch of green. And so I added greenery to them.
I’m still in love with my red and white kitchen. With the faux subway tiles that always look so clean and crisp. Kendra did that job.
Most of all though, I love the counter tops that I did myself. It was a project that made me a nervous wreck. Because you have to pour the epoxy and let it settle.
Pouring a good amount of epoxy that dries fairly quickly is kind of a scary task. For it could always drip down to the floor. I managed to keep it where it belonged, however. That was my first time working with epoxy and probably my last!
I just adore the shininess of the counter tops. To me white and shiny means clean!
Since I used galvanized containers on the other side of the sink, I decided to use this little galvanized tray to corral my kitchen cleaners.
Some might say the galvanized look does not go with the more feminine gold cabinet pulls. But I like to mix things up. After all, there are no rules in decorating. There’s just personal taste.
My little tomatoes are growing faster than I can eat them! But of course that is a good thing. I will be giving some to my next door neighbor and my daughters.
So I didn’t do anything drastic. I just took everything off, cleaned the counter top, and rearranged things.
I added a few different elements like the galvanized containers and the dough bowl, which I bought from an Etsy site not long ago.
You can never have too many wood dough bowls or cutting boards, as there are endless ways to use them.
I like to change things up to refresh the kitchen I use every single day.
I don’t think I’ll ever get bored with the red and white color combination. Pairing red and white together just looks so cheerful to me.
