Kitchen Sitting Room

I was ready to show you a new tabletop vignette I had put together when I realized that I hadn't shown the rest of the Kitchen Sitting Room pics. This space is such a departure from what I had at the other house, but still "my style". I had been concentrating on just whites in the small kitchen eating area, so it was fun to bring in some "woods" over here. I like a mix of the woody tones and whites and neutrals, and having this unexpected space off the kitchen, I have been able to use some pieces I never thought I'd be able to.


This big armoire was in the basement holding quilts and pillows, but since I needed extra storage for pantry items in here, I brought this with us. I had originally hoped to put the tv in here but it took up valuable shelf space, so it's on a separate wicker table.




Yes, it's black on the sides. The girls that had this piece in their shop were spray paint "happy" back before chalk paint came along. They just painted the two sides, (glad they didn't mess with the front of it) but when we get settled, it probably will get a paint makeover...not sure what color.


The two large breadboards are from Antique Farmhouse,
 and the laundry basket is filled with extra linens.

I found the French Cheese sign at Robin's Vintage Suitcase.


This little shepherdess is one of my all-time favorite prints,
it was in the powder room right off the kitchen in the old house.
I love this dark comb painted frame.





I told you about this antique table and chairs here.
It still has initials carved in the top from one of the kiddo's guy friend's.
When I found out, I thought of man-handling him...
good thing he could run really fast.








sorry, sort of blurry






The kitty girls had to find new napping spots here, 
so this is now a fave.
Bonus is that the grain sack replica is burlap,
 so when she's not napping she can chew on it.

One of my milkmaid prints is hanging here, 
 the other one had such a heavy frame 
I didn't want to put in the wall anchor for it.





I'm so glad I was able to use this wicker settee that had been on the sunporch.
 It's my new coffee drinking spot first thing in the morning.

An old bench is doubling for a small coffee table.
Just big enough for one of my black tole trays.

I don't think I've ever shared this old ironstone hexagon shaped tureen bottom;
another basement decor piece.
(I had all kinds of things hidden down there!)


Cute little English Cottage Salt and Pepper.
