javascript:void(0) Pixel Mischief: Rednesday!

Wednesday, February 10, 2010


Hi All!

It's my first time posting for Rednesday at It's a Very Cherry World. Since I have a red and white kitchen, I am always on the lookout for red items, so when I found this blog = LOVED it!

My kitchen in still in the process of remodeling. The floors have been painted black and white for about 3 years now and it's starting to wear off, so I am thinking of keeping the B&W but going with industrial tiles. We already bought new stainless steel appliances when our fridge went on the blink last year. Now we have the money all saved for new cabinets and a countertop, so I'll be shopping for those soon!

On to the RED!

Even though it's a bit rusty - I love this old stool!

I've had this spice shelf for almost 20 years. I decided it needed an update!

So here's our little coffee corner. Those tiles with the ugly grout in the back are going away when I get the new countertop and cabinets. I'm thinking of putting white beadboard back there, to match the rest of the kitchen.

This is the cabinet above the spice shelf. I bought these red crates at the dollar store a few weeks ago and spent an afternoon cleaning and organizing the spices and baking items. I wish I had a before picture to show you - it was a mess! I had marshmallow fluff in there from the 1980's and some rock hard brown sugar...EEeeew! Now that junk is all gone and I can find everything so much easier! No more emptying the entire cabinet to find my oregano!

On the other side of the kitchen I have a little table set up for Valentine's Day:

And to brighten things up I bought myself some red and white tulips last weekend. So pretty! I can't wait for spring to get here!

So that's a little tour of my red and white kitchen. Thanks for stopping by!

Great reds Donna! That spice wall looks amazing! And I would definitely recommend beadboard. We had the ugliest tile backsplash ever, and my husband didn't want to do anything with it at the time, so I just cut beadboard to fit right over the tile. I love it! Hope to see you next week with more reds!
Happy REDnesday!

I think beadboard would make a really cute backsplash, especially with the black & white floor.

I love the glass jar with the little lock and key!
