A Few New Things in the Kitchen


I had planned on doing a tutorial but I didn't have time to get it written up last night so instead I figured I would just share a few pictures of some things we have added to our kitchen. I have been pulling some all-nighters this week and it looks like I have a few more ahead of me before things settle back down towards the middle of next week. I am so excited for the shoot but also a little overwhelmed trying to get everything ready. Of course, it hasn't helped that neither of the girls have been sleeping well and that Jon will have been gone 6 out of 9 days. Oh well, hopefully I will have time to sleep soon! 

The buckets and wire basket are from IKEA and the basket is from Target.
Tomorrow I will be headed out to some nearby woods to cut down some fresh everygreen to fill the buckets up with.



I also got this for the powder room too! We never had anywhere to store extra toilet paper and it always drove me crazy so I love having this in there now. 
(There is no natural light in here so sorry for the blurry photo).

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

  5. It's a beautiful display but what is the purpose of the basket for...what are you storing in it? Do you mind letting us know how much the wire basket at IKEA costs?

    1. I emptied one of our cabinets filled with brownie, muffin, and bread pans and put it all in the basket. This freed up a whole cabinet, and I was able to organize Lillie's coloring books, crayons, and notepads with all the extra space. We have very little storage space in this house (one small closet downstairs and one linen closet upstairs and no basement or attic) so we love finding uses for baskets dressers, armoires, etc.

      The baskets came in a pack of two and I think they were maybe $12.99 or possibly $14.99? Honestly I can't remember. If I find my receipt I will let you know.

  7. Hi Jennifer! You always come up with the most lovely ideas. I can't tell you how much I love this. My kitchen is new and I'm SOO scared of drilling anything into the cabinets. How did you mount these? I have a great bulletin board that I transformed to hang a calendar on the end of the fridge, but I'm to scared to drill into the cabinet. I'm trying to find a less permanent alternative.

    1. Thanks! I just drilled two small screws directly into the cabinets. That kind of stuff doesn't really phase me, but I think my husband would have died if he knew what I was doing :)

  8. It's darling. I just purchased a vintage shop keeper's basket in the same chape, but missing a handle. It's for my linen closet, extra wash cloths etc. I love it with the Buckets and agree, Evergreens will be lovely.

  9. Jennifer I love this...are the rod and hooks from IKEA as well? Good luck with your shoot. Even though it's a bit overwhelming it's got to be equally as exciting!

  10. I love all of your ideas. Everything looks so beautiful. Have we ever had a tour of your powder room? I would love to see it as I am looking for ideas for mine.

    1. Thanks so much! No, I don't think I have shown any pictures before. I don't have the type of lens needed to get shots of that room, but if I ever splurge and get a wide-angle lens I will probably put some up.

    2. You are far too hard on yourself with photography. Even snapshots would be much appreciated by much of your followers I am sure:)

  12. Great use of that end space. I always loved those white hanging pot from Ikea but haven't figured a way to use them. This is perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love this idea! Just a suggestion, but I personally cook a lot with herbs such as parsley and basil etc. It would be a cool idea to plant herbs to grow in your kitchen, in the little pails!

  14. I love the gray check rug you can see in the background. Where is it from? I NEED one for my kitchen :)

  15. looks great and such a nice way to put something special in an awkward space to decorate (the end of a cabinet). I'm going to have to check out my Ikea now =)

  18. You are a woman on a mission! I don't know how you do it, I really don't.

  22. I love how the dark colors of the wire basket and rod stand out against all the white, and the greenery looks wonderful too. I need to spend more time at Ikea next time, I have seen some really neat things on blogs that have been bought at Ikea, yours included.

  23. Very pretty! Hope Lillie continues to feel better!

  27. Jennifer,
    Thanks for those inspiration pics! I bought that same basket and rod (plus the silver can) from IKEA and had planned on using it in our kitchen remodel, but I just couldn't find a place for it.
    But I could definitely use it in the bathroom! Thanks! :)

  32. Gorgeous. You have impeccable taste! Can you share where you got your green moss balls and other green decor balls throughout your home? They are all different and are great accents.

    Hope you get some sleep.

    Fondly,

  35. Jennifer, everything in your home is so beautiful! You never cease to amaze, I love your timeless classy style! I have never seen your powder room but would love to know if you put the wall paper in yourself and if you know the pattern and manufacturer. It is so soft and pretty! Thank You and God Bless!

    1. Thanks so much! I got the wallpaper from American Blinds about 3 years ago, but honestly I can't remember what that name of it was :( If I have time later I will try to look and see if I still have the box somewhere.

  36. Thanks Jennifer! Would you say the color is yellow or more of a cream color? Have you shown any other pictures of that powder room? I would love to see! :)))

    1. It's more of a cream or even a very light tan. No, I don't think I have shown any pictures before. I don't have the type of lens needed to get shots of that room, but if I ever splurge and get a wide-angle lens I will probably put some up.
