It was ridiculously inexpensive, and even though it was an impulse purchase, I bought it! How many times can you find something for the home with the Preamble to the Constitution on it? It's pretty heavy so I have it sitting on the big shelf over our stairway to the basement. (big changes coming to this area, hopefully this summer!)
My kitchen and living room are completely open to each other - it's basically one big room, so I keep the themes unified in every season. Usually I don't decorate for summer, I just lighten things up after the winter and it stays that way until Autumn. But this year, I am in the mood to go all red, white and blue for summer.
This is outside the kitchen door, where most of our guests enter our home.
Just inside the door to the left.
I have an oak cabinet just to the right inside the kitchen door then these cabinets between the stove and sink.
I painted this tea cup holder on Saturday. It used to have a gold finish on it. I like it better with ASCP Old Ochre.
I brought out my tea cups that have red or blue on them.
We still need to get our over the stove microwave. Maybe this week. That will free up some counter space where we've had a small countertop microwave. We've been waiting to do this since before Thanksgiving, just keeping it real. That's the way things go when you choose to live debt free.
