5 Ways to Get This Look: Rustic Kitchen

rustic-kitchen-for-less

I spotted this kitchen vignette at Liz Marie Blog.  I don’t usually go for a very rustic look, but something about this kitchen made me take a second glance.  I think it would be perfect in a little cottage tucked away in the trees near a lake….or on a sandy beach somewhere.  It’s a kitchen that says, “Stay a while,” isn’t it?

Well, if this is a look that you love, I have good new for you!  You don’t have to pay the price of waterfront property to get a kitchen like this one.  It’s possible to turn the kitchen you have into one that looks a lot like this.  It doesn’t take a big remodel, either–the rustic feel of this kitchen comes from the accessories just as much as it does from the structural elements.

Rustic Wood Bookcase

I absolutely LOOOOVE this rustic backed bookshelf from Karianne at Thistlewood Farms. Why is it that Karianne makes the simplest projects that have huge wow factor. Where I, on the other hand, make something, and by the time my supply list is done I have lost you? She is brilliant – that is why!  And I like to overcomplicate the crap out of everything.  The wood against the stark white is simply stunning and I think one look at this and I am going to do the exact same thing with on of my shelves.  Thanks for the inspiration.

I scored some free fencing off of Craigslist earlier this year.  Trying to keep on a tight budget with this Operation Restoration: Home Edition project forced us to think creatively about art on the walls.  Denise picked the lyrics “How Sweet It Is (To be Loved by You)” lyrics for the sign which is so appropriate for this family.

Yesterday I showed you the overall finished sports themed bedroom that we designed for my nephew. Today I am starting the tutorials for each aspect of the room. In the Pottery Barn Kids magazine they have this cool vintage looking baseball scoreboard.   It is just one of the art pieces in their photo shoots {…Read More…}
