I replaced out the green Italian glass cantisters you can see here, with white ones with red lids from HomeGoods (on clearance for $5 each). They weren't my first choice but the price was right and so were the colors, so for now, they'll work. I added vintage 1950's cherry decals to the corners to change them up alittle.
Above are two little wall hangings I painted to help accessorize. I have never hung things on the back wall of my counters before. I like the look and at 97 cents a piece for the wood and alittle paint, they are priceless! You can see a close up of a cherry decal on the apples plaque. (I know, apples and cherries, but who cares!)
I know, the changes aren't dramatic, but it does have quite a different feel now. The red and white really add nice splashes of color and I do have some more sign ideas for above the stove and for the wall space above the top cabinets. As my budget allows I plan to add some roosters and chickens. My husband is thinking about getting some real chickens soon, so they would be very fitting in my new, country style kitchen!
