~My Vintage Kitchen~
I have been soooo excited to show you pictures of my kitchen! I have been waiting until Friday to show and tell you about it! 
A couple of months ago I painted the cabinets white, this week I finally got up the energy to repaint the walls!
The kitchen was formerly red...but it is now a very soft antique white!
( I thought a red kitchen would inspire me to cook, not liking to cook, to me is a terrible flaw as a housewife...sigh.)
 I just adore the color of this oh so Shabby Hoosier Cabinet!
Another shot...I am not finished, but it is at least presentable now...unlike many of my creations on this poor litle stove! Giggle, at least I can laugh about this and really I am not terrible, I would just rather be painting...
I have not figured out what type of wall decor I want for each side of the cabinet, so for now I framed a vintage piece of ceiling tin...
Some darling vintage items...I am thinking about painting the mixer pink...and isn't this vintage toaster cover the cutest?!

 I am giving you a sneak peek... there is more to come, of my kitchen, tomorow for Pink Saturday! A delightful pinky surprise, you will love it so check back!
A sweet thank you to Cindy at for hosting Show and Tell Friday!


  1. Hi Olivia....I love it!!! You did a great job! Perfect color of that Hoosier ~ lucky girl!! Have a great weekend!

  2. Olivia, it looks beautiful! That is quite a transformation.

  3. Love the new kitchen, you did a great job!!! Pretty, pretty.


  4. Hello Olivia, your kitchen transformation is just GORGEOUS!! What a terrific job! Now it is so pretty, you will definitely want to spend more time in it (perhaps to even cook, LOL)

    Warmest always, Brenda

  5. I'm a sucker for a red wall, but I know it can get overwhelming especially in a small area. The white cabinets look fantastic and really open up the space. I'm curious....what goodies do you have in the cupboard above the microwave? (Love the turquoise scale too) ;)

  6. Your kitchen is adorable! You did a great job!!!!
    I love the toaster cover. FUN!


  7. I've been wanting to paint our kitchen red, LOL, but hubby wasn't 100 percent on board with that so we're going to do one wall in the family room instead.

    Love that hoosier cabinet!!!

    Now not be able to cook is NOT a flaw for a housewife. Who says the woman has to do the cooking anyway?!? My hubby does ours!

  8. Love how your kitchen turned out - your Hoosier cabinet is beautiful! My favorite color! ~Marcy

  9. Olivia,wow you did great job! love the new look soooo much pretty and what a great continuation from your dining room wall colour.. and the hoosier is awesome! love how you decorate that room! I guess now, food taste better in new kitchen redo huh! ;-) hehehehe have a great weekend!

  22. Olivia, This is just exquisite! You've done a beautiful job renovating your kitchen! I love these photos. And anybody would be delighted to cook in a kitchen like yours.

    I have to admit, I struggle with cooking too. I'd rather sew...but the family does want to eat too! :o)
