French Fruit Crate

You may remember, a few months back I had a crate hanging above our island. Well, just to change things up a bit, I took it down for a while. But when I got this French fruit crate from Elsie Green House & Home, I decided it would look great above the island. DSC_4563 This is a view of our kitchen that I rarely show…mostly because I feel like it’s kind of plain. But, as you can see, we do have a nice amount of storage, even for our small size kitchen. The area beside the refrigerator is where I keep our small appliances…that way our limited counter top space stays open. DSC_4575 The gray door is our pantry. I painted the door in a gray weathered stain. I’ve always wanted to add a vintage screen door in it’s place, but I haven’t found one that fits just yet. DSC_4569 I love to hang small baskets and herbs from the crate. I have lavender and lemon balm…but I will probably add other herbs and flowers throughout the summer. DSC_4571 The vintage rolling pin also came from Elsie Green House & Home…it’s a beautiful online shop with French farmhouse antiques. And the white hydrangeas are from our garden. They look so pretty this year! I do love the white ones! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today…I hope you enjoy your weekend! Let me know if you ever have any questions about our home or decor, and I’ll do my best to answer. Also, please follow along on INSTAGRAM HERE, where I post daily. And please take a minute to visit our sponsors at the top of the blog. Blessings

    Becky, plain can be a WOW. You just prooved it. There is no fuzz, no clutter, just a hand, that knows, what it is doing. You surely do know it. A raw look of the wood in your kitchen makes a perfect (really perfect) counterpart, and adds that special something.
    Happy greetings from Méa, I hope you understand my English, as it is not my mothertongue

    I think it is perfectly beautiful and LOVE your kitchen. I lean toward the clean and clear style and your touches are magnificent!

    Your kitchen is so beautiful and lovely! I think the screen doors on pantries are so terribly cute.

    I really like your screen dome over the food in the photo.

    Happy weekend!

    Hi I'm new to your blog! Is your backsplash beadboard or narrow subway tiles laid vertically?

  5. Min says:

    Hi there, I would also love to know more about your backsplash. I have been planning to use beadboard myself and would love to know if it has been easy to keep clean, particularly behind your cooktop. Your kitchen has definitely been an inspiration to my own renovations. I look forward to your reply, have a beautiful day, Min 🙂
