Space Above Kitchen Cabinets!!


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.

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.

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
