What up, buddies?!
I'd love to show you around the kitchen and breakfast nook area of our home while it's all decked out in happy spring pretties, so come along! I'll also link sources below for ya. 🙌🏻 Y'all know I can't sit still for long when it comes to decor (those creative juices GOTSTA get out or it feels like I'll bust!!), so let's have a look before it all gets switched up again...
How do you guys feel about decorating in the kitchen? Half of the time, I want to fill it with fun farmhouse-y decor, and the other half of the time, I like that it's pretty simple. Sometimes I think that huge space above the cabinets looks empty and sad, but then I can't ever seem to find something I love enough to put up there. The struggle is real. 😉 I tend to lean towards keeping it simple when designing kitchens, so I'll do the same in my own, I guess. For now, a bit of fresh spring green, my vintage wooden spoon collection (thanks Where Sisters Gather !), this cutie wood sign from Three Mango Seeds, and a few Rae Dunn Clay funnies will do. 😉
What is it about flowers in a sink? I can't help but stop mid-scroll when I see a farmhouse sink draped with beautiful blooms, and these blue beauties from the grocery store just had to come home with me! Our farmhouse sink [HERE] is an inexpensive alternative to the real deal, the DIY chalk painted cabinets were a much needed and cheap refresh to the space, and these DIY concrete counters were another low-budget way to update our kitchen. (Did I ever tell y'all that we completely redid our kitchen last summer for under $1,000? Someday I need to do a round up of the DIY's and supplies for this space...on the list, guys. 🙌🏻 Until then, we used the Young House Love DIY concrete counters post--check it out if you're looking to concrete it up!)
Ah the breakfast nook. Or, more aptly named....the Everything Happens Here nook. 😉 I love that we have a big ol' farmhouse table in the dining room where could comfortable seat our large family, but instead we cram around this smaller table every single meal...that we don't eat on the couch (us) and the floor on a picnic blanket (kids). Anyone feel me?
This pedestal table is one of my very favorite pieces in our home, and it has served us well over the past couple of years. We can seat five chairs plus a highchair around it, and it's just fine. Top things off with a yummy chippy wood fixture, some cheapo deapo drop cloth curtains and a stain-disguising rug...boom. Done and done!
For this year's spring look, my girls wanted PINK! Pink pink pink. Is there another option in a house of four daughters?! 💗😉 Thus, in keeping with their choice of theme color, we did a little pink lemonade sitch for a "fancy" tea party on picture day at the house. They love these faux tulips, and it's lucky for me that tulips are SUPPOSED to look awkwardly angled and move with the sun...because they certainly move with the little fingers constantly playing with them.
Love these budget-friendly white cross-back chairs with just a hint of distressing paired with the rich wood tones of the wood tile floor and that chubby table. Y'all know I love me some whites and woods together, and topping it all off with happy springtime colors makes our home feel, well...happy!!
What do you think, buddies? Are you a kitchen decor fan, or do you keep it simple in there? Would you ever consider DIY countertops or chalk paint on cabinets...? 😉 Would love to hear from you below, and come say howdy on Instagram [HERE] and Pinterest, [HERE] too!
