Spaces in My House

As I am sitting here this morning, trying to get the energy to start cleaning the house, I am noticing spaces in my house that I love. 

Here is a quick tour of some small spaces in my house that make me smile.
1. My new kitchen nook. I love that this broken vintage wooden box helped me organize my space in a pretty way. Oh and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint painted cabinets.

 2. The Chalkboard my husband designed. This was the perfect solution to some dead space.
 3. A drawing and pottery display. I purchased the drawing from a local artist and the pottery was made by students at the Kaneland High School. They are the perfect color for my house and I love them!
 4. One of my favorite "nook and cranny" spaces. ASCP Cream antique mirror, old wooden box (obsession) and a little glass display bowl.
 5. My new platter display. I have been collecting platters for a few months and I love the way they are displayed now. I got this plate rack from my mom. It didn't work with her dishes but it fits mine perfectly. My favorite is the dark and crackly one. :)
 6. Last but not least is my office nook. I love this desk that I purchased at the flea market. The chair from Sycamore Antiques is a perfect fit. The ASCP painted mirror is from my parents and the vintage stool was a recent garage sale find. I have another vintage stool that I had been using but I am trying out the yellow one for a change in color.
Thanks for visiting. :)



  1. Looks like you have many ASCP inspirations and the kitchen cabinets as well, that is amazing!

  2. Love your kitchen cabinets.And that plate rack is cool too!

  3. So many wonderful things! I love the cabinets and that painting the most. I found your link on Coastal Charm and am now following you.

    Have a great week!


  4. I am still checking out some of your different posts-love your cabinets-I think my son and daughter-in-law might like that color for their cabinets.The crazing on the the platter always adds so much character.You have a great collection.

  5. Well we bit the bullet and we gutted our 50 yr old kitchen . My house is 1100 sq ft. every rm is full and the garage is full. I have appliances in the middle of the formal lv. rm. We also have torn out the flooring in the rec rm adjact to the kitchen. I almost did not make it through a 3 wk. gutted bathrm. ( one and only bath rm.) .I have not reached the point of excitement. Think about me while your cooking and doing dishes. :)
