Adding Color to the Kitchen with Plants

This is our first installment of our new “Adding Color Series” ~ “Adding Color to the Kitchen” (which by the way, will be more than one post).

In the past I have shared creative ideas here & there, but this time I am going a little further.

I am going to give you some creative ways to add color and mix things you would never think of!

A lot of us has some of grandma’s china, and we don’t use it, but sometimes we want to have a piece or two out to look at. This is a gorgeous piece that we have turned into a planter. This is so pretty that you could put it any where in the house!

Don’t have grandma’s china, but you love the sifter you two used while baking. How about the violet planted in grandma’s sifter?

Maybe we are a little more retro feeling ~ how about using an vintage bread tin.

or, for the car lover here is another idea

All of these ideas will look awesome sitting on your kitchen counter, on your Hoosier, on top of your kitchen cabinets, or on top of your frig! Don’t forget to share pics with us!

Have a great day, and check back soon for our next installment of adding color to the kitchen!
