Last week, I found some vintage treasures at my favorite Flea Market. I love to play around with kitchen accessories and change them out. Here's what's new in my kitchen.....
(click on any picture to enlarge)
I had these old bread boards
but was looking for a way to display them.
I found this great vintage basket....
It fits perfectly next to my oven.
Love the texture of the wicker
and wooden feet...
The basket was a bit too deep for the bread boards.
My friend, Deborah, suggested
I stuff the bottom of the basket
with newspaper or towels...
Great idea, it worked perfectly!
Love the way this basket displays my collection.
When the kids run and dance in the kitchen
the boards won't fall over anymore!!
I also found this bench at the Flea Market.
I really liked how narrow it was.
I almost passed it by
the wood color was really strange...
(Of course, I forgot to get a "before" photo...)
The wood was kind of a cheap pine yellow color.
Don't get me wrong...
I love pine...
Just not the original color of this bench!
For $20 I bought the bench.
I figured there must be a way to fix it up...
My friend, Cheryl, suggested I try Briwax
in "Dark Brown"...
I rubbed on one coat and buffed it out...
The Briwax turned the yellow bench
into the PERFECT color for my kitchen!
Have you tried Briwax??
I now have three vintage scales in my kitchen.
This one actually serves a purpose as my new fruit bowl.
I have it on my center island to remind my family to eat some fruit!
This old biscuit tin is my new favorite kitchen find!
I love the color of the box....
sort of a gray-green...
and the bird on the front... love it!!
It adds a pop of color to this space
and functional storage too!
I bought another vintage crock.
This one set me back $5.00.
I had a much smaller one
which didn't hold all my favorite cooking utensils.
Love the generous size of this one!
Switched out my rose oil with a vintage cow oil painting...
I've had this painting for a while.
For a change,
I moved it into the kitchen
next to my silver.
Placed my vintage bakery box above my kitchen cabinet.
I was planning on using it in the kids playroom
but decided I liked it here....
I like the contrast of the wood
next to the old floral tole tray....
I hope you will consider following my blog!
Thanks for stopping by!
Edited to add:
Polly from Sassafrassstuff emailed me
to let me know that the basket is a French artillery basket
