My Shabby Kitchen

[Edit: Since this post, I've remolded my kitchen on a $1,200.00 Budget! Check out what it now looks like here and here! For photos of construction, click here.]

Since my posting on the Hoosier cabinet the other day was a hit, I figured I post on the rest of the kitchen...

Here is my new picnic table that Ronnie over at Through The Garden Gate built for me. If you live anywhere within driving distance of Hanover, VA, check this place out! I try to go at least once a week.  You can find them on Facebook here. 
This is the view from the mud room. 
Lemons in a pink pitcher complete with embossed Fleur de Lis, and aqua cake stand topped with peaches and a funky wire cloche. This burlap table runner is really a coffee bag--I cut it down the side seams, put the label side facing down, and tucked under the edges. No sew and free, as my mom gave me a ton of empty coffee bags.
Looking from the dining room. Don't mind the blue tape on the ceiling--it has only been there for a year--I keep putting off doing the final paint touch ups on the cabinets....
Vintage bottles in the window sill.
Again the view from the dining room.
Here is the very shabby and French terrarium I got on clearance at Marshall's a while back. I love having it up against a window with natural light filtering through it. I did a mock cafe curtain with vintage picture frames and yards of lace to give it a softened backdrop.
Here is the Hoosier again, it will looks so much better once it is painted white!
Do you see it? That's right more Mercury Glass!
This table runner is another coffee sack! This is an old medical cabinet that used to be mahogany. I painted it to look like it had been in an old farm house with many layers of similar colored paints and glaze. You can also peek into the dining room in this photo, so now I will leave you on a cliff hanger for my next post.

I'm linking to lots of places on my side bars, and as a first time here:
