Top of kitchen decor ideas
This has been in the works for a month. Now we had to paint, you know, sand, prime everything all the cabinets, and then we also bought a kitchen table on Facebook marketplace and totally refinished that to our liking.
So this has literally been a month that I have been like my kitchen. Hasn’t been overly usable, so I mean it’s been usable, but it ‘ S been a disaster. So now is the fun part. When I get to actually decorate this space – and I’m – so excited to share it with you guys, so I wanted to just start off by saying if you are new welcome to my channel, I hope that you guys enjoy this video.
Hopefully you get a chance to check out some of my other videos and I would love to have you subscribe and join my amazing youtube community here, but anyways we are going to get started. I’m, going to show you like a little peek of what we have right now, a couple little things like this little plant.
We already did just because I had my husband’s, help in hanging it, and then we’re, going to just get decorating this space. Okay, so here is a view of what the kitchen looks like now. There’s. Cova eating her breakfast but anyways.
So I’m, going to insert right here a picture of what the kitchen looked like before we did any kind of remodel or renovation, so you can get an idea of just kind of how dark the kitchen was before we painted the cabinets and Put in some new light fixtures, we also took out our old kitchen table and put this table in here.
This was a Facebook marketplace find for $ 60 and we sanded it down refinished the top and painted the bottom, and it just. I love the look of it. We had a rectangular table in here. If you are new and it just, and it was like the same kind of oak color as the floors, it was just very outdated, so it’s.
Nice to have this in here and I love the round shape my husband thought for sure. He’d, want another rectangle one, but I think we all love the round shape now and it does have a leaf. So it can open up and easily fit six people.
We have the dining room, but honestly we eat in here every day we eat in the dining room, maybe twice a year. So we, like, I said we painted the kitchen cabinets in pure white by Sherwin Williams, and I painted the island in mindful gray.
So now is the fun part of just getting to decorate this space. So I’m super excited to do that and basically it’s, just a blank slate right now you can see. I just have like a utensil holder over there.
I have my charger over there, so you know I have very minimal in here right now that farmers market sign has been up there. Basically, this whole summer, I like to leave that up, and that was from Hobby Lobby.
So we have a couple little things that we did already hang up in here and I’m, going to show you that right now before we get started okay, so the first thing that we installed was this hook bar right here.
At the end of the island, I love adding like cutting boards. I love that look and just kind of making a little more rustic. You’ll, see in my decor style. I don’t like a ton on the countertop. So I love something like this, where I can decorate and it’s not sitting in the way, but it still adds a lot of decor and cute touches and texture to the room.
So we did install that this hook bar I found over at Target. So I had my husband and stole that because if you’re new here or if you’re, not new here, you know I I usually just hang everything myself.
I’m totally comfortable using a drill or you know a screwdriver or whatever, but didn’t want to screw this up because it was into the cabinet and I thought well sheetrock. I can easily patch, and I’m sure you kind of patch I just didn’t want to screw it up.
So I had him hang that for me there. So the last thing that I had my husband installed for me, which I just think it drastically added so much coziness to this room – was this little plant so the plant I had him just install the bracket for me and more.
I could have done that, but I had him holding it up there to see where I wanted it and it was. He was already up there, so I just had him hang it for me. The bracket itself is from Home Depot. It’s. Actually for like outside, but I love it and then this little plant is one of my favorite plants and that is from Target the heart and hand collection.
I just ordered another one from them, because I love this, but I think that this just made it feel so cozy over here by the sink. So I am so happy with how that turned out. So here is just a view of the kitchen from this side.
Just so you kind of give it an idea of what we are already working with you. Okay, so I found it this adorable homemade sign at Hobby Lobby. So I’m going to hang that right above the window. I think it ‘
Ll, look really cute. If you are new, I hang I try to hang almost everything by command strips, so I don’t have to put so many holes unless it’s, something like the plant or something that I really need to hold, but something light.
I will hang with command strips, so I just kind of trimmed this or one that wasn’t going to show and put it where I could and that’s. How I like to hang all my pictures, so one more thing I did. What you saw me just do was measure the midway point between the window and then the midway point of this, so that I can get it as close as I can to the center of the window.
They were in high school when the mud things got kind of awkward the sparks in the air. He would stare at her and claps. She would try to act cool, but it was obvious I could [ Music ] it be together
She said bribed me, love song cuz. I know you’ll, make it beauty. Maybe I’ll call you my sweetheart and promise. Nobody can steal me away. Hey then I am your horse cuz. I want you and I wanted you to know you looked at her and then he smiled picked up a pen and paper.
I started writing probably something about her eyes and how they’re, always shining or something cliche baby. I only want you [ Music ], and then he said I wrote you a love song and I tried to make it beautiful it’s, a song about you, sweetie sweetheart, and how nobody can steal me away.
I guess is just I never want to feel overwhelmed with like too much decor. This is actually even more than I normally do, but I’m enjoying it. I like it so anyways. I’m gonna just walk you around and show you a little bit about what I got and where I got it.
So I did not really change up anything over here. This is a mug wreck that I got from Target. I saw it for like two weeks and then I never saw it again. So I don’t know if they still have it, but I love this.
It’s, just the perfect size, and I like the wooden one. I like the black metal ones, but I don’t know I like the different metal or wooden one, and then I just have some hearts and hand mugs a lamb’s, ear wreath and then this little Avant, I love bucket with Some greenery and then this fresh blueberries, sweet and juicy pillow came from tractor supply, and this is just an extra Island stool that we have over here next to where the table bowls are.
But we pull this up every night. But I don’t like it pushed up to the island. I think it just looks too crowded so over here on the table. I love love the way that this turned out. So this is my favorite vase that I shared in one of my last hauls from Pier one, and I got it on.
You know the clearance sale and I love it. I love the basket weave texture. I’m still waiting for my tall white one to come in that I ordered, but I love this and I love this color for summer. So I just added some of these little periwinkle and white hydrangeas in here, and it ties in beautifully with the color of the vase, and then this is I don’t actually know what this is.
I don’t know if it was meant to be a charger or what it was, but I just put it in the middle put my vase on it, and then I have just some coasters and some salt and pepper shakers, and we use this Table every day – and I’m still, because this finish is relatively new – I’m, really trying to protect it, so I want to keep coasters out there, so people can use them and I want to keep placemats set out so that When people come over to eat or when any of us grab our plate, we automatically just put it down at a place setting.
So these are the napkins from Pier one that I got on clearance and then the napkin holders – and I just did that – I’m – not doing a whole place setting. This is easy to just move aside. If you’re eating dinner, but I love the look that it gives the table, so I am so so pleased with how this came out so coming over here to the left of my sliding glass door.
I just have these little appetizer plates that were from at home. I love this. The neutral look of them, and so I just took those florally ones out and put these in here for now. So if you can’t tell I like to decorate, really neutral and then just add pops of color, like with the hydrangeas and the hand towels so coming over here, these anchor jars – I got these from Walmart, but they also have them at Target.
This is like the medium-size. I love these to me. They are super kind of farmhouse, modern farmhouse. Looking they’re just classic. They never go out of style, so I just have my flour, oats and sugar and those and then the scoops on the inside.
We’re from the hearth and hand collection. I do not believe that they are still there. I’m, not sure, but I got those probably six months ago or more and then over here to the right of the sink. This little riser came from at home.
I love the little black detail just to bring some more of the black in here, because the kitchen is so white the I liked the handles and then other little pops of black in here. So I grabbed that riser and then this is my favorite dish.
Soap from home, good or at home goods. I’m sorry and then just this little plant and then these three little plants were from Joanne’s. I showed them in my last haul and they were on clearance, and I just have those on the windowsill and then up above here.
I love this homemade sign right above the window with that little plant. I think it just really makes this little window area feel very cozy. This rug is from Amazon, it’s from the mite access home collection.
I’m, pretty sure I have this already linked in my Amazon store that will be down in the description box. I love it. It’s, so beautiful it’s, great quality, but it’s. Not so plush for the kitchen so like crumbs and everything are not gonna get stuck in there, so I really love the way that this looks so coming over here to the stove area.
I had this crock. I think I got this at Target last last year or something, and I just pulled out a lot of my gray, silicone utensils, my hearth, enhan rolling, pin with the black handle and then some of my like copper utensils, and I love the way that looks in There and then I put this round cutting board.
That was also from the hearth and hand collection, and I just like the way that that looks over here to the right of the stove and then on the stove itself. I just have a black cherry Merlot candle on this little wooden.
It’s, actually a trivet from Target and then down here. I just hung this little stripe tile that I got from Michaels on 75 % clearance, again just adding a little pop of color with hand towels without making the whole kitchen blue or green or whatever, and then over here to the left of the stove.
I found this bread box at t.j.maxx and it’s, not huge. I mean it’s, not it’s like gonna hold a loaf, and there’s like a loaf and a half in there. That’s, all it’s gonna fit. We don’t really have that much bread anyway, so that’s plenty, and I liked the black with the wooden top.
I think again it just pulled in some more black in here and the wood elements, instead of just being the white one, and then this is our little hand towel ladder and just a little plant from Target so coming up here on top of the refrigerator.
I just have that little picture that I got from Tuesday morning that’s, going out of clearance, and then this is a greenery that I think I either got from. I don’t know it was Hobby Lobby or Target. I’m, not even sure I’ve had that for a while and just I love the way it’s, just kind of draping over the side of the refrigerator, and then I put it up there with my Magnolia Table cookbook so then coming down here.
This is my Zen charger. I have that website linked in my kitchen renovation, video. If you’re interested in checking that out and then I just have my little cake stand here from the hearth and hand collection.
I just put some of those little bowls that are also from the hearth in hand, collection, the gray, neutral bowls and just this little ring that I think I got from this little candle ring that I got from Walmart, I think last year and then over here.
I have my favorite fruit bowl or fruit yeah fruit holder ever and this is my little Booker basket from Pier one and then for now. I just have my little wooden egg holder down there. I’ve, had that I’m, probably going to pull out my little wooden eggs from Easter, just the the wooden ones and the white ones and put those in there.
I think that’d, be acute decor piece and I’m, not sure where I put it, but I just put it there for now and then I just kept the island very simple. We are here all the time we eat here. I just don’t like a lot on the island, so I just have this riser.
I got this from Pier one on clearance from the store, closing sale and I love it. It is so pretty and I have another one of those candle rings and then my farmhouse candle from the copper candle Co. So I hope that you guys enjoyed this video.
