yesterday, i got those few accessories for my kitchen. yippee!
here is the before shot of my kitchen again:
and here is the new after:
i got these new pale turquoisey baskets at world market to keep kitchen things in that we don't use often...i got 5, but i think i'll need 6...argh! oh well, back to world market.
i put orange cheese puffs in one big glass container i already had, and lemons in the other, for some bright pops of color (i really love those big jarred containers, i don't know why). below them, is a pink "libra" goblet i found at a thrift store a while back that i thought was awesomeley awesome. i would really like to find all of the signs to coordinate, but i can't find them online. perhaps i shall collect them at thrift stores over time? anyway, inside the goblet are some vintage rainbow fondue sticks.
i have had these big vintage containers for a while now, but the tops were yellow. for some variety, i sprayed the tops of them orange. (can you tell i'm trying to incorporate a bit of this poppy color into my kitchen/home?) i'm really hoping the spraypaint fumes don't infiltrate my sugar and flour. hm. at least i don't use them often.
i brought this plastic yellow flower piece down from the bathroom (i have new plans for that area, and now that we actually own the house, i am going to attempt it soon), and hung it above the sink. i love the '60's feel of it, and the lights shining on it.

i still have to hang the handles, but you know, i just thought i'd share my progress :)
