New Finds For the Kitchen

August 10, 2012
Remember when I found this colander marked solid copper, made in Korea? I had not found a place for it yet.

This photo, from my kitchen reveal post, shows a dark red, metal, country colander hanging in my kitchen. I purchased it a while ago at a local drug store. It was for decorative purposes only, and had a star pattern on the bottom.

I swapped out the country one with the copper colander. I think it has a much more French country look!

I just found this colorful round tray this week at an antique store. I think it may match my green shutter in the kitchen.

This is the corner that I am planning to hang the tray in. There's the green shutter. I am thinking about taking the star down and putting the Paris plate in its place and the tray above the shutter.

I like the new tray!

I raised the green shutter up a little higher on the wall. I also added my vintage, Progressus french fry cutter to the vignette.

I guess I'm done re-arranging for today!

  15. I used to have that same tray. Yours looks great hanging above the shutter. Maybe you can send your star on a brief vacation and bring it back twined with twinkle lights in December.
