Shabby Chic Art

Welcome everyone.  I have been very busy with my art and design projects this summer. It’s a good thing that I have this to fill my time because I have been chopping at the bit to repaint some furniture and ready Shabby Lane Cottage for Fall.  I told myself that I had to wait a few weeks.

Here is my spice cabinet, all of my cabinets are from Ikea, I love them they clean up easy and the top ones even light up. On the top of the cabinet I have used some of the smaller pieces that I have of white ironstone, and an old box.

The top of my fridge is so huge that I think I could put my whole kitchen on it. LOL A little burlap. baskets, covered boxes, wire baskets, and my cute owl like to hang out there.

Here is my kitchen counter tops. White tile was my choice, I don’t even have to worry about putting a hot pan on it. I don’t have a lot of storage, but my large canisters and jars take that worry away.

I received this darling wire picnic basket as a Christmas gift, it holds pine cones and a burlap feed sac. I made the table runner out of burlap.

I really get a lot of use out of my bar, it’s great for feeding the grand kids, baking, and crafting. I’ll be fixing another eye sore, this time in my kitchen. Hope you enjoyed my changes. Enjoy your day!
