Countertop Vignette

After working on my kitchen cabinet the other day (see previous post) I decided that my kitchen counter, this little spot in particular, needed rearranging and redecorating as well, soooo....

Here it is...

Yes, those are blue Hersey's Macadamia Kisses...all the way from Hawaii...My sister Lucy and BIL brought them back for me us from their recent trip. Yummy! I love chocolate covered macadamia nuts.

Cute little index box turned recipe box.

I used one of these cabinet doors that were salvaged from a recent mini demo over at my parents house to make my little chalkboard. I love to reuse, repurpose and recycle.

The knobs are original to the house so I knew there was a hidden gem underneath all those layers of paint.

I knew it...It's beautiful....

And this is what the little index box that I bought at a thrift store looked like before it was given a new life as a recipe box.

And it was only a $1.50...Awesome.

So what do you think?


Thank you all for stopping by today.

Hope you drop by again real soon.

Have a wonderfully blessed day.

Hugs and Kisses,

I love what you did with your parents cabinet door! Its so cute and the perfect addition to your kitchen!!
I found a teaset very similar to the one in your photo at a recent thrift store outing! Its on my blog now if you'd like to take a peek! It's pretty tarnished but I don't mind :-)
Enjoy a wonderful weekend!
