A New Shelf in the Kitchen

Sometimes a wall in the kitchen just needs something.


This homeowner loves teapots and had some china that she really wanted to have in her kitchen.



Before the wall was empty . . . just waiting for the right fit.


The shelf by itself was not quite big enough.
So we added the ornamental iron on each side. It created just the right balance for the space.

Notice the group of three on the shelf, and the natural elements (flowers and greenery)



The lace added a fabric element to the shelf and the ornamental iron mimics the lace feel.

The homeowner was so happy because she now has such a nice focal point in the kitchen and it has items that she loves!



Go to Between Naps on the Porch for some great Transformations!

    This is certainly the icing on the cake. It matches perfectly, and your lace is stunning.

    It matches her kitchen set beautifully. Love the idea of adding the ornamental iron scroll to give it a larger appearance.

    Adding the wire hooks/brackets on the side was a good idea to make the shelf fit the space.

    Love how you also grouped the three chairs together. Before there were chairs all over the place.

    I also love what you did with the three extra chairs. Before there were chairs every where you looked.
