After repainting the kitchen cabinets red and antiquing them to cover a multitude of sins, I've been very pleased with the bright color but I'm toning it down with the addition of lots of white ironstone in this end cabinet. I love the way the white just stands out against all the red. I've put just the few things that I have on there so far.....
I thinned my collection of tea pots WAY DOWN and only kept the pots that pleased me or were special gifts. I still have alot of teapots! But the big fat white one is my favorite, when the family is here we will use this big 6 cup pot for a nice brew. And then there's the dark brown crockery "Brown Betty" from England on the right on the top shelf, sent to me one Christmas by my sister. Love the Betty pots, they are classics!
Still have a ways to go arranging things and getting them just right. The blue double decker pot is from my youngest daughter, she of my framed looped potholder post fame!
I like the white ironstone alot. I like the red distressed shelving alot. But I can see a problem right now. I DON"T HAVE ENOUGH WHITE IRONSTONE! I shall have to remedy that forthwith by taking many trips to thrift stores and yard sales. It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it and that lucky person is ME!
I'll be linking to White Wednesday and Rednesday. Their buttons are on my sidebar. Come visit and enjoy all the great projects!!
