Small Kitchen Decorating Ideas {Room by Room Summer Showcase Week Two}

Welcome friends! Today marks week two of a fun new home tour series I am participating in called the Room By Room Summer Showcase.

It is hosted by Amy at My Life From Home.   The Summer Showcase will include a link up of bloggers’ home tours, featuring rooms as they are now and including plans for future decor and renovations.

It actually started last week with Entryway Ideas, but as I was on vacation I was unable to participate.

But you will definitely want to check out last week’s projects as there are so many great ideas!

When my youngest daughter left for College three years ago I decided to downsize from a 3 bedroom Colonial to a 2 bedroom Townhouse.

It was not an easy transition as you definitely accumulate a lot of stuff over the years. But, it was too much to keep up with on my own.

The Townhouse is perfect because I don’t have to worry about snow removal-living in New England we get a lot of snow!

The Association does a great job with landscaping and I have a full finished basement for my Son to live in.

The one negative is it has a tiny galley kitchen. I will show you some of the small DIY projects I have done since I moved here and then tell you what my plans are.

I have big plans for this small space.

The kitchen has a blue and white color scheme that I really like. I love the porcelain sink and the large window that showcases the beautiful view.

I didn’t want to hide that view so I made a quick and easy no sew burlap curtain that you can see here.

The only lighting in the kitchen is recessed lighting and while it is not a working light, I added a cool DIY hanging light.

We we are definitely a coffee drinking family-although I only drink iced coffee-so I added a DIY Pallet Coffee Station that you can see here

The HOME tin letters add a farmhouse touch that I really love! The orchid is not real but fills in the space by the sink perfectly and is nice to look at while doing dishes!

The antique scale was a thrift store score at $3.99! I love the aqua color. The one appliance I keep out is my Pressure Cooker as I use it so often! Check out my 5 easy pressure cooker recipes here

Now, you see that wine refrigerator above? One of the things on my to do list is to remove the cabinet it  sits in front of and have it under the counter where it belongs.

I hope to have that done very soon. This little refrigerator is such a great appliance to have. You can read all about it here 

The kitchen has beautiful dark hardwood floors,  but I really think they would pop if the cabinets were painted white.

That is another project on my to do list. Of course I will have to add new hardware as well.

I am trying to decide if I should go with a classic white or a white with antiquing around the edges.

What do you think? Once I decide on the cabinet color, I will also freshen the kitchen walls up with a fresh coat of paint.

Finally, I would love to add this gorgeous travertine tile. Isn’t it stunning? I really like the different shades of blue and  think it would look pretty with white cabinets.

Well I hope you enjoyed my small kitchen tour and hope you will come back to see my progress with this space.
