The Pine Kitchen Cupboard

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

I've been filling the cupboards in the new kitchen

and the one made of pine is pretty much finished...

You may remember this piece,
it used to look like this... 

Now it looks like this...

I've been filling the shelves with a little pewter and ironstone.

Of course a farmhouse style kitchen needs a swan and a hen or two...

A little Nandina from the garden...

This keepsake was added too, my childhood cookie jar.
This piece brings back so many memories!

My brother and I ate many a cookie from this jar
and I couldn't begin to tell you how many times this poor little bird lost its head...

So often it lay in a small bowl on the counter, just waiting for mom to glue it back on again.
The beak is long gone...

There are two more cupboards to fill.
My favorite things to use are old pieces, like the cookie jar.
Have any pieces in your kitchen that remind you of your childhood?

  11. Oh yes...I do like that makeover. Your collection looks lovely on it and those red berries just set it off! I have a few items in my kitchen that were my mom's that I love using. One is an old aluminum pie pan and I can visualize her baking one of her pies whenever I get it out to use! Thanksgiving blessings to you and your family, Cindy!
