Shabby Chic Curtain and Chandelier!
Happy Pink Saturday! Today, I want to share you some of the pinks in my kitchen! Above the sink I added 2 poufy Shabby Chic Curtains. I replaced our boring standard light with a Shabfabulous Chandelier! I also painted and distressed two old shutters to give a little more privacy in my backyard but still allow the pretty view!

 I layered a white valance over a
Shabby Chic Rose Print...ohhhhhhh la la, love the pouf and fluff!
 A close up of the chandelier, I mixed the original crystals with some I had to make it look fuller, eventually I will use all drop crystals...
To the left of the sink I hung some pretty plates I got at a church sale for next to nothing!

 
I have been dying for a faux cake or cupcake but they are too pricey for my tiny budget...although I did find this darling rasberry tart for $1!!!!

 
I also would like to use these pretty rose knobs on my kitchen cabinets...but when my husband hung the pinky chandelier he said ,"his buddies will probably beat him for this one" , giggle he was totally kidding, he always makes me laugh and so sweetly lets me decorate however I like! Swoon!
 


Well thank you for letting me share my Shabtastic kitchen with you! A big squishy hug goes out for Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
for letting all of us Pinkys get together!  I also just got invited to party at http://debbie-debbiedoos.blogspot.com/  she does alot of DIY and is a sweet friend!
I am off to find some junk to haul or paint something pink
Hugs,
Olivia

  26. Hi Olivia!
    I LOVE your kitchen! I would have never thought of a chandelier in the kitchen but now I'm looking at my icky light fixture and thinking Hmmmmmmm . . . just may do!!
    I see you have a Hoosier cabinet too! I used to have 2 of them and one was my sewing area - the pullout top for the sewing machine and then of course all the storage. Had to sell them due to lack of room - boohoo . . .
    Thank you for putting together a post filled with inspiring ideas and thank you also for your visit!!
