Hey What's Cooking

Welcome to Show & Tell.

I wasn't sure what I was going to post this week. Then I realized I haven't posted my kitchen before. I have seen some beautiful ones posted out there in blog land and thought I'd share some pictures of mine.

We have been blessed with some great buys from furniture stores in the area and in NC. We have never had a glass table top before but loved this one when we saw it. I picked the material for the seats.



I ordered extra material to have enough to cover the bar stools and add some to the window treatments that we already had up.


A closer look at the curtains.

The bar stools we picked up at a furniture repair shop in NC that does work for Broyhill and other companies then returns the items to the store to sell. Broyhill, themselves, sent us there to look at them and the man gave them to us for $50.00 each. NC is not too far from us to go for furniture and the deals are worth it. I came home and recovered them with the extra fabric.


We changed out the light fixtures from the ones that the builder installed.



The kitchen is open to the great room with a pass through counter that is great for serving on.


This is a view from great room into the kitchen.


This is one of my favorite pieces that is stored up above the cupboards. It belonged to my Grandmother who lived in WV and had cookies in it when we came to visit. My Mother let me bring it home a few years ago, since I had apples and fruit throughout my kitchen.

Ceekay has the same one from her Grandmother, which she posted recently.



When Ceekay was visiting last Oct. we took her and hubby to Paula Deen's and we both got an autographed pic of her restaurant.

Thanks for visiting today. Have a fun, relaxing weekend!

Wow, just wow!!! I love everything about it. Right down [or should I say 'up'] to the window treatments.

Stop by my antique show n tell if you can. [you'll need to scroll down a bit since I added the Tropical Storm update of the damage done in Houston where my son lives on the top of my blog this morning! ---]

Happy weekend.

Lovely (and clean and uncluttered!) kitchen.

Not sure what a great room is (apart from being great, obviously!) - we don't have those here in N Ireland.

Is it a more formal sitting room, living room?

Chez Nous said...

I LOVE your kitchen! It's so bright and airy, functional yet cozy, just beautiful.

Oh, what a beautiful kitchen. I love your little round glass topped table. I've never seen one like it and it's just precious! Your great room looks gorgeous, too! Thanks for coming to my tea party. This was so much fun. I just played all day yesterday getting ready for it. I'm a silly!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What a beautiful kitchen. I guess I am partial to white. I like ours so much better after we had it painted white. I love the new light fixtures. The chairs are beautiful - everything is beautiful.

That is a beautiful kitchen - I am very envious of all the cupboards! We are going to be re-doing our kitchen soon, but nothing can be done about the ridiculous size. Except spending multithousands of dollars to extend it out into the back yard. Not gonna happen!

My mom had the exact cookie jar - I thought I'd seen it last week!

Jessica said...

Everything looks so crisp and clean..which I think is quite nice. It's quite clear you have a well-cared-for home.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my show & tell today, I was encouraged.

I love your table. It is very unique to pair the traditonal wood, with glass. Very pretty! :)
