Dream Kitchen....

I love everything about this picture~ it's from one of my favorite Magazines Country Living. If I could put together my ultimate kitchen, it would look something like this.

While browsing through Etsy I found some great vintage finds that would fit perfectly in my dream kitchen.

1940's Tin Canisters, by: nestboxvintage

Vintage Spice Rack, by: industryLA

Repurposed metal shelf, by: kewpiesfarmhouse

1930's Universal Scale, by: OliverandAlexa

Vintage Tablecloth, by: calloohcallay

Vintage Chandelier, by: sheriscrystals

This is one of my favorite vintage decor books ever~ Found Style. I love the way they mix old with new, grouping second hand finds & vintage treasures in ways I'd never think of doing. I never get tired of looking through this book, I think I find something new each time I browse through it.

Beautiful pics - I love that kitchen! Did you know they are no longer making Country Living?

Yes, that's why I'm SO glad I held onto my old issues :)

Gorgeous! I especially like the chandelier. I had no idea they offed Country Living. I am so sad.

We have the same idea about a well loved kitchen. The picture truly is perfect and I adore all your finds!
I will have to pick that book up from the Library!

Have a great rest of the week!

Oooh- I love that kitchen & all of the great Etsy finds, too! Our Realtor thought I was insane when we came to look out our house last year and I proclaimed that I *HATED* the brand new kitchen, with its stainless appliances and new cabinets, etc. lol I had to explain to her that I'd choose a 50+ year old kitchen over a modern one anyday. Maybe one day! For now I'm stockpiling all of my fabulous vintage kitchen finds so that when we do finally move into my dream house, I'll have everything I need to decorate my vintage kitchen!!
