Spring Kitchen Decorating Ideas

?Simple Spring kitchen decorating ideas that you can add to a kitchen that are both pretty and budget friendly.

Yesterday, I shared how I decorated my living room mantel for spring and how I shopped my house to find decorative items to use. Today I am sharing how I added a few old and new decorative items to my kitchen to get it ready for spring. My kitchen is white and in past years I added spring color by making shelf backdrops for open shelves. This year I added spring colors in a different way.

You know I like to decorate with white so I can accent it with pops of color.? For spring this is easy to do since spring is blooming with so many vibrant and happy colors. I chose to use my favorite colors…; blue, pink, and green in the kitchen.

If you are new here, I made over my 1970’;s era kitchen with lots of?patience and paint. I even painted the laminate counters to look like Carrara Marble.

My kitchen isn’;t huge so I have to make every inch count. When I painted the kitchen cabinets over a year ago now, I removed the doors from these shelves to create open shelving. The doors were hard to open since they are above the elbow section of the counter area where the peninsula starts which makes the cabinets hard to reach.

I have gathered the collection of white plates, bowls, and pitchers over the last 20 years. The pieces are from Walmart, HomeGoods, TJMaxx and the Dollar Tree.

To accent my white collection I bought a few new decorative accessories to place in the hard to reach area of the counter. Since I can’;t use it as a food prep work space, I use it to place pretty things.

Like the blue cabbage bowls that?I have had for a very long time.

The wood and bubble glass hurricane is a new purchase. When I saw it on the shelf at Target, I knew it would look perfect on the kitchen counter. The matchstick holder and striker was given to me for Christmas.

I replaced the seagrass rug I had in front of the sink with a blue and white striped accent rug.? I like the fresh new look and the fact that when this rug gets dirty I can toss in the washer. I couldn’;t do that with the seagrass rug.

Back in 2013 I made over the IKEA step stool with Houndstooth duct tape.? When I posted about it, many commented that the duct tape would get sticky after a while. I am happy to report it has not.? How to Make a Houndstooth Step Stool.

I updated this topiary from a pair I made when I first started blogging. You can read how to make one yourself using fake greenery in this post—;>;How to Make a Fake Topiary

On the cooktop side of the kitchen, there is very little counter space, so I don’;t add any decorations, just items I need to prepare food.

I added just enough to refresh the space and now I can’;t wait for spring to officially arrive.

I do a lot of thinking about my garden projects year round, and winter is no exception. This is when I spend a lot of time researching into 100 expert gardening tips like these and researching hacks for growing my plants.

“What do you give a friend who has everything?” You’ve said it before, and there’s no doubt you’ll say it again. But here’s an idea: one gift that even the owner of everything could use is a chic box to store all those stylish bibs and bobs in. (Pretty genius, right?)?So you start to shop for a cool trinket box, and I’ll tell you, because I’ve done it — you either find the glamorous, glossy, $200 variety or the $10 job that doesn’t quite match the elegance of said friend.

When we moved to the lake house, the first room I set up was my studioffice. I set it up exactly as I had it on our previous house.
