A Few New touches in our Kitchen

Our kitchen basically looks the same as it did from when I shared it last, but there are a few things that are different and so I thought I'd show them to you today. 



First up are these bamboo bar stools.  I recently re-covered them with a beautiful gray tropical print fabric that I picked up while I was in Hawaii.


The bar stools came from a  yard sale a couple of years ago, and I have seriously re-covered the seats on them about five times since. I re-cover them so often because it's really simple to do, and by just switching up the fabric, it can really change the whole look of the room. But I love this new fabric SO much that I don't plan to re-cover them ever again!
 Perhaps I'll get around to sharing a blog post on how I reupholster the stools in an upcoming post, so please let me know if that is something your are interested in. 


Our kitchen is a little tricky to photograph and I always feel that it looks darker in my photos than it actually is, but with that said, I was purposely going for a darker/moodier vibe in here and that it why I choose such a dark color (Benjamin Moore - Wrought Iron) when I painted it earlier this year.


Another change I made in our kitchen is this rustic board with hooks that I have hung above our stove top. I found the piece of wood at a yard sale and I liked it for its metal label holders. From there, I just screwed in a few simple black hooks and then nailed the whole thing to the wall.


The board just so happened to be a perfect fit for this space. And I really like that it gives me a place to hang things within reach for when I'm cooking, such as a small pot, some cooking utensils and a dish towel. The fun wooded fish trivet is also from a yard sale.

 And now I have just realized that I could also hang up recipe cards on the metal label holders with magnets.


I love to bring in a lot of wood elements around our kitchen because I think that wood is just a great way to add texture and it also provides an earthy-natural feel to any space. 



And then the third new touch that I added to our kitchen is this wooded tray......which should be no surprise, I also got it at a yard sale,  as I also did with the wooden pineapple and wooden bowl :) but the tray is my newest find. I like to use it to hold our fruits and veggies.



If you haven't noticed, I love yard sales :) But perhaps one of the reasons why I love yard sales so much is that by finding a simple little treasure, it can, and it always does,  inspires me to make some changes around our home. Does getting new things inspire you too?

 A part of Feng Shui is to change things around your home often to allow energy to flow better. So I make sure to keep good energy in our home by yard selling. win win  :) 


The anchor platter, along with lots of similar items to what is in this room, can be found on my SHOP OUR HOME page.
