DIY decorating ideas for the kitchen

As I was pulling down my Easter decor I was comtemplating what to put up on these white shelves. I usually put my holiday decor on them, but there isn’t a big holiday for a while. So I headed out to my storage cabinet to see what I could find. I have a storage cabinet in my garage with tons of photo props and decor pieces I have found on sale or while thrifting. Well as I was digging through my stash I realized I had quite a LOT of white dishes. I couldn’t believe it! Where had they been all my life? ;) I pulled them all out and I knew just what do with them. I stacked them all up on my shelves, rearranged them a few times and then I was done. Why not display all your beautiful dishes? P.S. You can find the tutorial for these Ballard inspired shelves I made on House of Smiths.

I love how the stack of bowls came together. They look so much better displayed on these shelves then hidden in my cupboard. I also love the milk glass piece I found while thrifting. I found it at Savers for $2!! That was an awesome find. Isn’t she gorgeous?

I love the glass milk containers! These were a recent purchase from Target’s white collection.

white cake plate

Ooo and possible my favorite dishes are these white ruffled cake plates. I may have a tiny bit of an obsession with cake plates. I have at least 8. :) I found these particular ones at Pier one last year.

Both of these pitchers were purchased from Ross. The baby one was only $2. I just couldn’t pass it up!

diy frame

I made this mini chalkboard using this frame. All I did was spray paint it white and then painted the back cardboard piece with chalkboard paint. Such a simple project and I love how it brought the whole vignette together.
