Corners of my Home

The 'corner' for this week is in my kitchen. This is the area where I have located everything for baking. My mixer stays out, but my other appliances are in the appliance garage on the left. I like having everything hidden, but yet easy to slide out when I need it. I have a little vintage wire rack on the wall which I stick recipe cards in to be filed. My recipe boxes were all picked up at garage sales or flea markets, as well as the mini-sifter. The wooden piece in the back right corner is an old potato masher.
I saw a kitchen in a magazine once that had beautiful old silver ceiling tiles for a backsplash. To get a similar look, I used heavy embossed wallpaper and then painted it with a silver metallic paint by Behr. My aunt did the same with a copper metallic paint, and that looks nice also.

  1. Dear Deb, I love you. I have been wanting to do a tin ceiling and back splash but no way to afford that. So I was thinking of do what you did and was wondering how it would work. Well now I know. Thank you, thank you. One more reason I am sad you live on the other side of the US. Clarice

  2. Hello. I just found your blog and am going to set aside a good hour to go through it this afternoon. It's beautiful! Your canisters caught my eye...I have been on the lookout for some just like that! I am going to try a few stores this afternoon. Your baking area is just darling.

  3. Aha, you do have your own bakery of sorts! I too think the wallpaper idea is wonderful...like so many of your other ones, including the wire basket for the recipe cards. I wish you could magically organize my home for me...you are so good at it! I have a similar space with my canisters and mixer on the counter...hmmm, now that I think about it, I have a wire basket that would work for cards too, I need to look for it! Thanks for sharing your great ideas once again!
