New Old Kitchen Shelf


This old (very old) bookshelf used to be in our front room and was a hunter green. After several coats of paint she is finally all white and I put her in my kitchen. It is perfect to display all my red and white kitchen goodies.


The vintage Santa face was my moms. I cherish it very much.


Moved my little stove over here and now my youngest keeps stashing things in the little oven. Including the remote. Not funny.


The little sparkly houses were an after Christmas buy from my favorite shop last year.





The bottom shelf is just the perfect spot to display my metal picnic basket.
I am so happy to have completed one painting project. Now on to the next item on the list.

Oh Elaine that shelf just brings me right back to my childhood. So sweet. Mind if I ask what the color of your wall is? It looks like what I'm looking for in my bedroom.

What a great red & white display! I especially like the Santa face -- even better that it was your mom's.

Cindy said...

The darling little bookshelf is perfect for that space. That is exactly what I need for my kitchen, but it is not forthcoming! I have looked and looked. I will have to paint the piece that I have moved in there, but I am not in a hurry to do it.
I loved seeing all of your little treasure that are red and white.
Hugs, Cindy

I'm in love with your charming shelf - it's just so sweet. Your vintage decor is great. If the oven were in my house, I'm sure my cell phone would magically appear in there often...along with some toy cars, car keys, sippy cups...right now, all of those items seem to end up in the toy cash register.
