Kitchen Décor

I'm no chef. In fact, Cory does 99.99% of the cooking in our family.

I say 99.9% because he's tried the few meals I know and vetoed them all. Not that I'm complaining...

Vase as a straw holder.

 But where I DO contribute is thrifty kitchen décor.

Matching glass canisters. $5 for a set of two at Goodwill.

Beer growler reused as a container for rice.  A glass vase ($2) re-purposed as a straw holder.

Straws are one of my favorite luxuries. Not to mention they make every drink more fun! You have have to hold onto some childhood wonder, right?

Paper towel holder. $.50 Goodwill. Coffee saver, $3, Burlington Thrift Store.

Cincinnati Thrift Store Curtain.

Set of four valances purchased from St.Vincent De Paul on Glenway. $2.50 

Thrifted curtains.

They perfectly match both the grey and the red wall colors.

Fell in love with this needle point the moment I saw it. So happy and '70s. $2.00 at Goodwill.

Obsessed with anything '60's and yellow. This potholder was in PERFECT condition. $1.99 at St. Vincent De Paul.

Speaking of yellow...

 Not to be dramatic, but this scalloped trim table cloth is EVERYTHING.  $3.00 at Goodwill.

Family artwork is always a great way to add to a space.

As a renter, we have to work with existing paint colors.
Luckily, this painting was the perfect fit.

All the artwork was created by Cory's grandmother, Nana.  Thanks Nana!

Until next time, Bon Nuit!

  1. So Lovely! And a great Idea for the rice. I love glass bottles and don't have a use for all mine. This is a great way to re-purpose some!
