We have dark grey walls in our home with white twin. That is why we chose a turquoise paint color for the antique window frame. My husband removed the glass from the frame, spray painted and distressed the word, then added chicken wire to the back of the frame (for texture).
We added "glass" knobs to the bottom of the frame to hold coffee mugs. I found this tiny cake plate at Hobby Lobby. It is perfect for muffins or biscotti. The chalk board was my great grandmother's which she used in school. The white candy dish is my mother's. I love it because I remember it always being stocked with chocolate or mints when I was a child.
The mason jars for coffee storage was my husband's idea. It is hard to tell in the picture, but the mason jars are really large. They were given to him by one of his older customers at the meat market (she loves to can vegetables, etc.).
In this picture, you can really see the detail of the burlap table cover. It is old fashion coffee pots, really cute. We had a piece of glass cut to fit perfectly over the burlap and table.
In each section of the frame, we displayed old family items. This is a hankie made by my great grandmother.
These are spoons which were brought over from Scotland by my great-great grandparents when they moved to the United States. The doily was also made by my great grandmother.
I love, love, love this addition to our kitchen!!!
The best part...the coffee is always fresh!
