Little changes in the kitchen

Now that Christmas is over I am revamping my decor in the house. I am not one to stick to one area at a time so there are many projects taking place at the same time.  I already started with the dining room but only have the buffet finished.  Next area is the kitchen.  I have started with the kitchen island.


I am wanting to change out the decor on the shelves too.  This is what they look like now.


I really never have decorated my pot rack they way I would like to.  I kinda just threw a few items up there.  I am going to change this out too.  I will probably keep the rooster.


So right now this is my kitchen.


I may even change out the decor above the cabinets.   I don't know when I will get this all done but for now I want to concentrate on the island area.  I am hoping to get it done by this coming weekend.  I also want to finish the dining room by this weekend also.  At this moment I only have the buffet done.  I still need to freshen up the hutch and the table.

  1. It Looks lovely Jody! Too bad you weren't closer we could swap stuff since we seem to have the same taste!

    1. it's funny how some people have the same taste. My sister in law has the same taste as me so we are always finding stuff for each other at the thrift stores. Her home is a mini version of mine. I have more stuff then she does.

  2. Sounds like you have some good plans for creating a new look in certain areas of your home. I really like the rooster with the lamp on your island. Did you do the calligraphy on the Bon Appetit sign? It looks great and adds just the right touch. Your buffet décor looks wonderful too!

    1. Thank you Lori . Yes I did the writing on the chalkboard of course with a little help of some transfer paper. It didn't work like I thought it would so it turned out a little messy. I still couldn't see the lines very well so I had to eyeball it. I might not change out above the cabinets right now but I will still revamp the shelves on the island. Have a wonderful day!

  3. The island (and really the whole kitchen) looks beautiful! I came over from WOW and you have given me inspiration to change some things. Thanks!!! I have been doing some "winter decor vignettes". Now I am ready to change out the kitchen too:)

  9. You have a lot on your agenda Jody. I feel you are a lot like me and always need to be doing something. I am going to revamp the wall in our family room. We just bought a new Paula Deen entertainment center so I figured it was a good time to do it. Wishing you luck! lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

    1. Another thing that I would love to do is paint the walls through out the upper level. I will probably only get the master bedroom done. I can't wait to see what you do with your new entertainment center. I love Paula Deen furniture.

  10. I just love your kitchen! So beautiful, spacious, and cozy. I also love how your cabinets pop against the deep color walls. Did your cabinets come that color or did you paint them? Love it all!

    1. Thank you. I had to paint the cabinets. The whole kitchen was oak (not my favorite). I also painted the island dark brown.

  13. I love it when another blogger tackles several makeovers at once. Makes me feel like I'm not just the only one out here tearing up the house. By the way, if you just threw together that pot rack top, you still did a great job. I wouldn't change it if it were mine.

    1. Thanks but I did change it out today. I still have the rooster up there but added a few more things. I have to wait to take pictures later tonight since it is hard to get good pictures in the daytime. I will be posting it tomorrow so stop on by and see the changes to the island shelves and the pot rack.
