My New Kitchen Photoshoot ♥

For my whole life I have always wanted a kitchen with white cabinets and a black and white checkered floor.

I have never decorated using this much color...

I painted these canisters as soon as I found out we got the house. I really love the clashing aqua and red.

Some of my vintage aqua canning jars, and part of my nutcracker collection.

If you click the photo above, you can see my "I love you more than Bacon" sign. My parents got it for me for Christmas.

Ha! I painted the dish drainer too!! Hot pink, aqua, and red.

I love, love, love all the little shelves and cubbies all over the room.

It may be tacky, but I put my pink Candylights in the kitchen.

♥ Vintage Mercury Glass on SALE!!! ♥

All of these are in my Etsy shop: 
Shabby Vintage Shop
I reduced all the prices, so you can stock up for next year....

Before and After

Here is my latest project... Thought I'd share some before and after photos.

The outside is the prettiest shade of pale pink. 

I painted the inside a darker shade of pink, so it looks gorgeous when you open it up.

New House

This is the new house we are moving to. It is right on the Housatonic River. It is on just under 2 acres. One huge section of the yard on the side of the house is fenced in, so it's perfect for kids, animals, chickens...

The upstairs is a finished attic with bay window and window seats. I think these 2 rooms will be my craft rooms and storage for all my shop items.

It has a huge back porch that wraps around the house. 

This is the living room and giant fireplace.

This is the front porch. 

The kitchen is perfect. White cabinets... black and white checkered floor. I am going to decorate it in aqua, red, and pink... a little brighter than what I usually do. 

IT HAS A LIBRARY!!! You have no idea how happy and excited this makes me! I finally have someplace to put all my books.

And the dining room walls are wallpapered with vintage Rolling Stone magazine covers. There are 2 built in china hutches in the dining room and huge picture windows covering one whole wall overlooking the Housatonic River.
