With johnnyjumpsup and mum's simply living 'what's in yours'. This is my spice cabinet, a recent addition. A
shabby chic tatty cupboard sprayed to match my kitchen which will shortly be celebrating its 1st birthday. I hid the cupboard from my husband when I first bought it, now there's maturity for you! I am really pleased with it because as you can see I tend to buy doubles and with everything on view this should not happen again. Well we live in hope.
Like johnny and mum I also have kilner jars, all bought at boot fairs. The jar holding pasta was in a reductions basket at the supermarket. I also like to reuse old jam jars, my favourites being Tiptree because of the label and Bonne Maman because of the lids. In the background a gratuitous shot of my cheese board, a Christmas gift.
We had our kitchen made by a very talented carpenter, which was considerably cheaper than using the usual kitchen companies and resulted in a gorgeous end product. I also valued being able to design around our needs and the limitations of our kitchen space. Heaps of very practical storage has been fitted into quite a small area. Another advantage of doing it this way is that we were able to add another cupboard in the last few weeks, which was made to our specification; including glass panels with stars. Why do these stars make me so happy? I am truly a child at heart.
Have a great weekend, and make sure you keep the child in you happy.
