I just can't wait to share with you my new kitchen shelf this morning.
I have a small wall in my kitchen's eating area that was in need of a fresh look. After thinking it over for a while I decided a shelf was the perfect thing to add. Lets face it, a new spot to decorate is always a plus!
The shelf itself was purchased at Ikea. I think this is the first shelf ever that I have not built myself. I love how fast it went together and the cottage/farmhouse vibe it has is a big plus.
I of course filled the shelf with some of my favorite vintage treasures but before we get into all that first take a look at the prints hanging on the wall above the shelf.
Yup, they're the prints the lovely Linda from Itsy Bits and Pieces sent me. Are they not the most perfect addition to this display. I am head over heels for them.
OK, I'll stop drooling over the cow prints long enough to show you the rest of the shelf.
I added my newly crafted chicken wire cloche that I talked about here.
The cloche is resting on a milk glass dish.
To add some height to the clock I placed a stack of butter pat dished underneath it.
What's more farmhouse like than a stack of dishes.
I was able to round up enough for two stacks, one on each side of the cloche.
I topped each with a pretty petite creamer.
You probably remember seeing these glass jar sleeves recently also.
If you missed it you can take a look here.
I added them to the mix to hold my vintage silverware collection.
And finally, I added my favorite rusty, white vintage scale and paired it with my rusty cast iron cow. Isn't he adorable.
I love how well the shelf all came together.
I'm really loving how well it fills up that empty wall in the kitchen.
It adds a little extra charm to the space.
Have a wonderful day everyone,
