As I went from room to room, my dining room made it clear that ‘straight up’ shabby wasn’t welcome everywhere. I decided to change my focus from Shabby Chicing things to Deformalizing things at Blue Creek Home. Immediately the goal became much easier. The post “Don’t Force Shabby Chic” explains how I came to the decision to change plans.
The kitchen is so traditional: A mix of stain and distressed, cream painted cabinets, Uba Tuba granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and a mess on the backsplash. (I know I talked about redoing it a while back – but it will remain a mess until I decide). The only place I saw an opportunity to really add a touch of shabby to the room was to add white accessories. What fun I had shopping for whites!
This shelf above the stove is always a fun place to play.

I fell in love with the shape of this vintage casserole dish
I found these white canisters at a local consignment store.
I paid $10.00 for all three and I love that they are all different.
