Weekly Inspiration ~ Our Farmhouse Kitchen

Hello and welcome to my weekly inspiration post! This weeks inspiration is our farmhouse is just about the only room in our house right now that doesn't have stuff for the Springfield Show piled to the ceiling in it. You literally can't even walk through our dining room right now...makes me a bit nutty....if anyone that didn't know me stopped here they would think I was a full blown hoarder (actually I wouldn't even be able to open the front door)...good thing the show is next week!

The rest of our house may look like a bomb went off but at the end of the day I always have to have a clean and neat kitchen.

Other than keeping a clean and organized kitchen I also strive to make ours welcoming and cozy. I like to do that with lots of white mixed with warm rustic wood tones. We absolutely love the big farm table that Neal built us and it is the perfect size for homework, my sewing projects, dozens of cookies being decorated, board games, lego building, or whatever else we may have going on on any given day.

Lots of beautiful linens, crocks filled with old rolling pins and old wooden spoons and big cutting boards are also a must in our farmhouse kitchen. I cook and bake A LOT so I like the things I use to be right on hand.

My newest little relish jar is actually what inspired this post. I have quite a few of these and I just love them and this one was begging to be photographed.

Well I hope that I am going to be seeing some of you next week at the Springfield Extravaganza!! I absolutely can not wait!! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this weeks inspiration!!

  1. a true farmhouse kitchen! Love it from beginning to end. You are inspiring, Megan!

    All the best with your show!


  2. You kitchen is so gorgeous! We are currently renovating ours, and I'm in the process of painting my cabinets off-white. We don't have very high ceilings (7.5ft,I think) and I'm struggling to find a semi-flush mount ceiling light that will provide light in several directions. I see you have one of those S-shaped lights. How do you like it? I'm concerned that with such low ceilings,it may direct the light right into your face. Lol

    1. I love our light fixture, I chose it because you can adjust the lights so that they shine directly where you want them to. I wanted my stove and island to be very bright, I hate working in the dark!

  3. Every time I see your home I want to kick myself for getting rid of an old table and chairs that I now see could have been painted and kept... What was I thinking? Oh, well. I did manage to keep several old white pitchers and flea market treasures and hand me downs to make up for my huge error... Love love love your home and your sense of style....

  4. That little relish jar absolutely deserved it's own post! Very charming. I also love your kitchen table; it literally invites one to come and sit down. Clearly it is well-used and well-loved.

  5. Hi Megan,

    Good luck at the Springfield Extravaganza!!! I would love to be able to go. It looks FABULOUS!!!!!!

    Waiting with bated breath,
    Sarah :)
