Kitchen updates in white

Painting everything white in my kitchen! Cannot seem to stop. It all started with changing my drawers to basket drawers and adding creamy white vintage dishes.

I took an old frame and first painted it white.

I had painted the bricks white too and used the seem gold glaze on the frame as I used on the bricks.

I am pleased how it is coming out. The plaque was given to me by the town, that is the year the house was built.

 Plan to put a chalkboard in the frame. 

More of the painted brick with kitchen utensils.
So much brighter and fresher.

what do you think?

Thanks for vising the Brayton Homestead!

Wedding, decorating and shop updates

Between decorating work and wedding plans have been adding items to my Brayton Cottage shop.  Seems like creams and pinks predominate here. Other cottage tones are present too, but theses are my fav. I think creams create such a welcoming look in home decor and pinks and rose tones flatter many in fashion accessories.

Is there enough to get everything accomplished and done well?  A challenge I hope to meet, wish me luck...
Thanks, Karen
