Pink Kitchen Shelf

I am almost done with the mini kitchen redo and am excited to show you some more of the progress.

The shelf over the stove got a coat of pale pink paint, and then a dry brush of cream paint.
The above photos show how the shelf has looked before....on the right is the original color...on the left is how it looked with a dry brush of cream paint.   
Next I freshened up the counter next to the stove....above are some photo's of how it has looked in the past.....
Here is the new fresh look....   I am still shopping the house, these are all accessories that you have seen before!

If you have been following my redo, you will remember that I have been using the hand painted drawers we bought at the auction (4 drawers at $4 each)   I put a white vintage bread box, an embellished picture frame, a heart shaped bowl, and a pretty tea pot in this drawer.

I have a small collection of vintage vegetable cans...the old ones are so much prettier than the ones we get now!
I am so pleased with the fresh look the kitchen counter has now!

I didn't make much of a change to this little rolling cart on the side of the fridge.   I added a yo-yo "doily" that I made a long time ago, a pink heart fly swatter, and my initial!
I added some pink bows to the white enamel lid burner covers...
The photo on the left shows the gum ball machines in the shelf above the stove that got packed up, the green cabinet was moved to the counter.....

On the right is the new vignette...everything in the vignette was already in the kitchen, I just moved existing decor to a new place!

I have a little tweeking to do and then I will do a post with a complete tour of my new Rose Garden Kitchen!

 See you soon!

  11. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this. PINK is my favorite color. I can't get enough of PINK. It just makes me feel good. It is a known fact in my family it has to be PINK. I bought me a new PINK mixer about a month ago. The heart shape dish with the single rose in your drawer. My mom had that same pattern of china. When she passed away she left it to me. Some of it was still in the original package.
