In this empty spot in the kitchen where our peppermint kitchen Christmas tree used to be...
I found this pretty baker's rack for the corner.
I like it because it's black, which nicely blends with the accent colors around the rest of the kitchen, and yet it's also swirly and curly and pretty, which make it not feel quite so heavy. The shelves are made out of wood, with grooves in them running on the diagonal. The shelves themselves are curved, so they're basically a quarter-round.
Now, to decorate the shelves, I was looking for some pretty dishes and maybe some other tschotskies. I chose some birdhouses (which will become more prominent as spring approaches), and some clearance pottery. I also found three pretty little primroses at the grocery store floral department, and while I'm not totally thrilled with their yellow plastic pots, they'll do for now. I played around a little bit with the placement, trying to decide which shelves to put things on.
For now, this is the arrangement I've settled on. I'm sure I'll be messing with it today and over time.
I'm looking forward to having this display space available to me to change things and add a little "pretty" to the kitchen. I also am looking forward to attempting to clean off my kitchen counters and the kitchen desk area and decorate those areas too -- but I think that's going to wait for another day.
Linking today to Metamorphosis Monday.
Hey everybody! I'll be hosting another Happy Tuesday this week, and I'd love for you to join me. I'll have my post up Monday night by 9pm, ready for you to link in. Won't you join me in spreading good cheer on Tuesday?
