Hi everyone! I wanted to share a little Christmas cheer in the kitchen! We spend a lot of family time here, and really enjoy it.
I have used a mix of old and new--just things I love.
I painted the backsplash. I am NOT a painter at all, but I got the idea from a mosaic tile backsplash, and thought I could achieve the look with paint. I actually layered joint compound on, textured it, then painted the red. After painting all the leaves and vines, I put mocha and a lighter cream glaze on top.
These little angel candleholders and the candy cane were my grandmother's and she always had them on the dining room window sill. The candles are wood. The hanging lantern is one of three I bought in Turkey.
The marble slab came from my grandfather's store. I'm hoping to have a larger piece of it cut for my mom's counter for Christmas. She loves to cook, and could really use it for breads and such. We are planning on tearing out the bar and reshaping it as a rectangle and one level, but have not gotten around to it. It's great, but really wastes some space that we need. The wrought iron basket came from Turkey also.
Thanks for stopping by my Christmas kitchen!! It's a family place we love to be together in.
I'll be joining At the Picket Fence for the Christmas Blogger Block Party, so be sure to go by there.
Luis and I are off to play at a Christmas luncheon, then a rehearsal this afternoon with one of my piano students and my 12-year old who plays flute...
