The White Vintage Kitchen – Creative Storage



I am going through a “white period”. A cleansing if you will.

Over a year ago we had a major downsizing.

Our old house was antique country/westerny. We have moved in to the 1940’s “casita” (little house). A charming 2 bedroom, 1 bath with a room off the garage which we turned into a “crash pad” for our wayward adult kids.

Yes, I need to take pictures!

Because of life (getting old and having hubby “health issues” suck) I haven’t done one thing inside this house!! Not one nail in the wall. Didn’t change the ugly, country blue checked fro-fro contact paper in the kitchen cabinets. OK, I’m coming out of a decorating depression.

The stuff is here but I am stuck! Me….a woman with no style!

Oh, did I mention we inherited a beautiful flourishing flower/veggie garden. I HAVE been doing something. I am coming out of my decorating coma…….

I’m really leaning towards doing everything that cottage white.

Yes Mike, I know this is Tucson. Yes Mike, I know it’s the desert. Yes Mike, I know white gets dirty. Yes Mike, I will be wanting to use all the vintage linen. Yes Mike, I will be painting everything in sight white.

Here’s some Vintage White –

Love this dresser without the drawers….might find it as “road kill” on the side of the road.

Jars are hot, buttons are hot and jars with white buttons are steaming hot.



What about this wood letter holder (of coarse I’d paint it white) to hold dishes?

A White Vintage Kitchen




One of my favorite looks for a kitchen is Vintage and White.

Can a kitchen have that “dreamy” feel? Is it a look that can be easily updated with a current trend? Will it look fresh in 10 or 15 years? I say “Yes!”




It can be shabby chic, french country, primitive or country/western.
A white background can be a starting palette of fabulous design and function.

With a few accessory changes, you can add the newest trends and then dump them when they grow tired. Just go back to the white canvas and start fresh.
