Adding decor on the space above the kitchen cabinets wasn’t easy…As my husband calls it “the most tricky spot to decorate”….
Personally, I don’t like that dead space, it just accumulates dust 😦 Yet, I couldn’t leave it empty and had to come with ideas. It would have been easy with the fake Ivy plants, however, I always feel they don’t go well with dark kitchen cabinets.
I brainstormed and decided to add some kitchen art work that matches to the stuff I planned to have over the cabinets.
So, all I did for one of a kind kitchen art is food photography or still photography 🙂 I quickly arranged few thing from my kitchen and snap some shots and gave them old photo effect.
It is super easy and here are the before and after pictures.
Then, ordered prints @ costco photcenter and mod podge on canvas like I did in my previous posts.
Isn’t that gorgeous ?? The other piece is coffee tin tray from 99cent store and I used a plate easel to display.
Also for rest of the area, I added a fruit basket, (already on hand) spray painted it black and added faux decorative fruits from dollar tree (already on hand). The cafe wall art is a gift I won @ my friend’ s baby shower fun game activity 🙂
I kept it simple without spending a lot and they perfectly match the black appliances in our kitchen 🙂
Hope this post will be a bit of inspiration and help you to fill that space above the kitchen cabinets.
