Vegan MoFo day 13 - Kitchen tour time

Eeeek, I've been kind of dreading this. I'm one of these people that never has a tidy kitchen, there's always crap lying about that shouldn't be in there. It's a pretty small kitchen and I don't have a dining room so it's a little cluttered. I also hate the cupboards and work surfaces in my kitchen, the previous owner and I have somewhat differing tastes. That said, I'm still taking part....but there is no way I am showing you my ugly oven or hideous 70's feature wall that I've yet to paint over!

In an ideal world, if money were no object, I would have a kitchen like Mary Margaret/Snow White's in once upon a time......

I love things to be mismatched, old and re-purposed. I'm not a fan of sleek, modern interiors, I like things in my home to look lived-in and have character. Most of my furniture is up-cycled but my kitchen isn't finished, and probably won't be for a few years!

On with the 'tour' then....or as much of a tour as you're going to get anyway.

The table all of my dishes have been photographed on this year.....

The table is an old pub table that I found on eBay, the benches are made of vintage scaffolding and the chairs were an upcycled pair I found on Gumtree.

Cute little ornament a friend bought me....

Some mirrors I found at a flea market....

Some cute little tins on a very ugly worktop......

The contents of the mdf faux wood (barf) cupboards.....

Ok, that's my kitchen tour done for this year, you've probably seen enough. Heh.


  1. I LOVE Mary Margaret's kitchen in once upon a time... And I think your little table would fit right in :)

  2. I absolutely love your table! & the mirrors are nice and colorful! :D

  3. I skipped some parts of my kitchen in my post too (partly because I hadn't tidied them and it was too dark anyway) but I like everything you've posted here! That's a lovely table and I really like the benches and the pitcher with the hearts on it. I love mismatched kitchens and I'd like to get better at upcycling old things too.
    That first collage also looks amazing though. Does they show it a lot in Once Upon a Time? I've been wondering if I should give that series a try and I feel like cute kitchens may convince me. :)
