I love shabby chic farm house decor, Americana, and modern european cottage styles! And of course I LOVE IKEA!!!!!!!
Our kitchen makeover was inspired by the farm house sink we bought there.
This makeover was on a budget, so we blended new and old cabinets and hardware (three trendy scooped drawer pulls from Home Depot) with our existing to save money. Replacing the over-stove microwave with a stainless steel range hood from Lowes, really opened up the cook top space. And the entire kitchen got a fresh coat of white paint.
White on white isn't a look for everyone, but seen a lot in Europe and we love it!!!
Our daughter loves thrift stores, and she picked the American flag at Goodwill of DE. It really pops out against the white walls.
The milk cap magnets on the range hood are from Brandywine View Antiques.
After sanding the counter tops with a very fine grit sand paper, we sealed them with Behandla. A wood treatment oil, from IKEA, that is approved for kitchen use. For a more modern look, we decided on a stainless steel backsplash instead of tile. The farmhouse sink, faucet, stainless steel back splash, and four sink base cabinets are all from IKEA.
The ribbon hung china my husband found at his favorite resale shop in Ardmore, looks chic hanging from a simple peg rack from The Annex Market.
Our old cork board got a fresh coat of white paint , a chalk board insert, and I added metal hook hardware. Fresh Vintage had some great accessories like the blue scrap bowl on the counter.
