Hi there everyone!
Sadly, the summer season is flying by. Lucky for me though Fall is my favorite time of year and comes the end of August I start getting out the Fall bins.
Am I rushing it a tad? I don’t mean to, seems the stores, pinterest, and blogs dictate this sort of thing.
Don’t worry though, I won’t get out all 10 of my bins.
Today, I am sharing some summer kitchen decor decorations.
Our style is Country, French, rustic, eclectic, vintage, southern style all in one.
Typically speaking, when you here country kitchen, one may think that means outdated. Not be the case, and No you don’t have to live in the Country to have Country kitchen. I don’t follow trends, and I am not one for white cabinets. I like them in other people’s homes but not mine. We had them in our Florida home and they were a mother’s worse nightmare. In today’s current trends they do have different finishes and if I could make them chippy with charm and no fingerprints, I would consider a few white ones.
I never finished showing you all of our kitchen since we painted the kitchen in Bavarian creme,
did the Faux beams, and since I started a little copper mold collection.
I figured I would give a quicky of my thrifty, vintage Country Kitchen.
I do believe you have seen some snippets along the way, I think when I painted that shelf ladder there in the corner with the KILZ-HIDE all custom tinted.
Just about everything on the shelf ladder was either made or gifted, like the red vintage scale, the blue rooster, etc.
I have mentioned to you all a lot of our decor in the kitchen has been thrifted and gifted along the way.
This old chippy side table sat in my father-in-laws garage for years. I cleaned it up pretty well..even though it still looks dingy, I suppose that adds to the beauty of it, and it turned out to be one of my favorite pieces.
Lots of nice storage there too.
Cute little burlap wreath made with love by Ann from On sutton place.
The rooster tile was a gift from another friend for my birthday a few years back,
I bought the frame to put around it.
Beautiful pottery also compliments from my FIL.
I recently shared my once paper cutter turned paper towel holder find.
I think recently I saw one like this in the pottery barn catalog.
Gifts scattered about, like the rooster from a blogging friend Kimberly Hites, I love it when I receive random gifts from blogging friends..feel free anytime, I gladly accept and cherish:)
The French wooden tray a birthday present.
I recently found some of my boy’s old artwork and decided I would display it here on my Grapevine wreath I made a few months back.
I can alternate it with a clothespin as you see.
My husband bought me these cute measuring cups from the cracker barrel last year for Christmas.
I found this vintage scale at an antique shop in NC. It was a deal if I recall at less than $20.00.
The herb pot I made and painted with Rit dye a few months back and both the herbs and the pot are still doing well.
Surprised I have not killed them.
A late birthday present from a friend. Cute little recipe magnet board. I believe she got it too from cracker barrel.
Of course, our little lucy has a space of her own. This painting was done by a dear friend when Lucy was just a little puppy. My friend was moving back to Germany and she gifted us this before she left. So excited actually next week they are coming for a visit. I have not seen them in 5 years!!! Elke will be happy to see this:)
I love it, and it has been in the same place for years.
Here is my copper mold collection finally complete.
They can be pricey for the super old patina ones. I decided these shiny ones would do me just fine for about 5.00 each.
So you see nothing fancy here, nothing outrageously expensive either.
I change things up too much to be spending a lot of money.
I have two boys to put to college and one coming up this year…YIKES!
I better start selling some of this junk.
Have a good day everyone.
Current Summer kitchen 2020 HERE
Thanks for stopping by today.
if you are not a regular I sure would love to see you back again.
I share lots more, and there have been some new updates to the kitchen since this post!
So adorable….all of it! I have always loved your kitchen.
I just love your kitchen Debbie! It is just so warm and welcoming. Wish I could pop over for a cup of coffee and a good talk! 🙂
Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces
You have such a lovely, cozy, creative space, Debbie…and of course, my favorite area is Lucy’s spot…
Love the lighter brighter color in the kitchen and still loving those beams, too. You and I are on the same lighter wall thing. I wish I could do beams, but the mister says no.
I love the brighter look in the kitchen Kim..with all the natural light it just makes it even brighter like a kitchen should be:)
Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions
Your kitchen is so pretty, Debbie. I envy you all those windows! I miss my light and bright kitchen at our old house. Such a difference to have no windows here at the condo since the kitchen is on the “connecting” side. My husband just bought home two tray tables with that orange looking wood. I just know when I paint them it will bleed through (even chalk paint) so I’m going to have to see if I still have some Killz in the garage to use.
That is a great idea Kathy! That will for sure work on those tray tables.
Penny @ The Comforts of Home
I love your kitchen. It looks cozy and welcoming. I really LOVE those beams!
it looks beautiful, the beams are lovely, I just adore that painting of Lucy and placing down by her dog dishes is just brilliant!
Luv, luv, luv!!!!! You always give me great ideas……
Such a beautiful warm inviting kitchen. I love finding knick knacks or as I call them “expressions” (smile) or making items that just fit in a room. Nicely done.
I like that..”expressions”. I will have to tell my husband I am simply expressing myself.
Such a beautiful kitchen Debbie! and boy am I envious of those windows and doors!!!
I just love your kitchen Debbie! I would love to have those faux beams!!! Whenever I see a “roo”, I think of you!!~~Angela
I have your little gift too on the other side. In fact I didn’t even show that side:( But it is there and I love it.
Certainly looks like it should be in a magazine Debbie…..Your kitchen will always be one of my favorites!
Love your kitchen ! Roosters and vintage scales <3 <3 !
Hi Debbie, I always love seeing that kitchen, those beams are a favorite of mine. All your touches are so pretty and the table from that garage has character and the measuring cups handing from those spoons is so cute!
Pretty and welcoming kitchen space Debbie! I forgot about your beams. They look really nice!

It all looks fabulous Debbie, I guess I have never notice the ORB light fixture before. Glad I spotted it, I love it.
Debbie I always loved your kitchen! Seems we’re all going lighter and brighter this year. Your home always looks fabulous and so welcoming…adding those beams was the perfect finishing touch!

I love the way everything looks the light colored walls in the dark beams all of your gorgeous little collections roosters everywhere so cheery and country French love Lucy’s picture that is a keeper for ever and ever
So… supper is on the stove, and I took a few minutes to stop by. NOW I want to stop and pin about a half dozen photos. I need to come back after dinner and go through this oh so slowly. I really love your kitchen. It’s my favorite room in your house, and pretty much love every space you’ve shown in the house.
Thank You Debbie:) the kitchen is truly the heart of the home!
I’m so glad you posted this ~ I feel like I’ve missed so much lately. Everything looks awesome! I like the paint and the beams. You’re so lucky to have all those windows ~ I just have to have a lot of light. My kitchen has no windows but I can see out via the balcony. All the roos are definitely YOU! 😉 I love the things your FIL gives you ~ he must have a treasure trove of goodies.
Pat he has a basement still filled with stuff. I had to tell him to kindly stop. I just have no more room. I want it all though, that’s the problem, he had some awesome stuff stashed away all these years.
I always love your kitchen! Those beams were such a good choice. They really add to the ambiance of the space.
Thank You Stacey! The beams really did finish the look.
I always love seeing your beautiful kitchen. Love the light that stream through it and you have so many beautiful, sentimental and interesting things that you have collected, gifted and thrifted!…all to make it a most wonderful room to be in !!
Love all your summer decorations! I am not ready for it to end. The measuring cups are adorable and the paper towel holder is very cool!
I absolutely LOVE everything about your kitchen. And I love the painting of your puppy and where you placed it.
Thank you so much!
