We have recently added some
minor additions welcomed friends to our kitchen. First I decided that since I haven’t grown since…..7th grade…..that I will probably be no taller than my 5 feet 2 inches. This means that every time the hubby isn’t around (who is always my go-to guy for reaching things on tall shelves) I need to drag a stool or chair into the kitchen to reach what I want. That madness had to stop. Enter a BEKVAM stool purchased at Ikea for $14.99. Now that was a solution I could live with.
It took little time to put together and soon it was taken to its home in the kitchen. I like the simplistic classic look of the stool, and it is mighty useful! BUT I felt something was missing. It looked a little too bare and lonely. Enter in the lovely vintage blue enamel tea kettle I had in storage! This was a gift from my dad several Christmas’s ago and I have yet to find a proper home from it until now.
It really spices up the space with a pop of color to a mostly neutral room. The navy color complements the light blue color scheme I have going on around the whole house and pulls in the navy’s from the living room. Most importantly it reminds me of my dad…awww. I am not sure if I am going to leave the stool its natural beech color, stain it, or paint it a color, but I am loving the function!
