Cottage Vintage Style Week

Welcome Friends to Etsy Cottage Style's newest and second week of the month's blog link party sharing our Cottage Vintage Style treasures.

So happy you could join me today as I updated my vintage dining room and right in time to share for this weeks fun from ECS.

My hutch is a treasure and I have enjoyed it for over 30+ years.
 
 Last January, I painted it black with distress and truly love this look taking it from a country style to more of a farmhouse cottage look.

The three glass doors on the top had grids that I removed and recently added some stain glass appliques that can be removed if needed.
Added ivory crackled knobs and carved wood accents to the top and lower doors.
 
The center drawers are the original hardward painted.
The top shares space with my white rooster collection and cloches with white birds.
 
The rose painting is very old and a found treasure from a junkin trip.
The inside stores country whites and glass treasures.
 
Some of the pieces here are 40 years old and very special,
 like the candle holders from Ireland
in the second pic.
For the hutch deck top,
 I simply enjoy a mix of old keepsakes changing this around often with the seasons.
Across the room, sits an old Barley Twist buffet.
 
On the wall above is an old shelf wall cabinet for display and storage.
 
 To the bottom of the wall cabinet I added double pegs placed close together for a creative way to display and hang vintage stemware.
Love the Barley Twist Legs with added distress and painted black.
To the double doors,
 I stenciled a french design and simply set a collection of what not treasures to the top in an old metal tray.
 
 Quick to move away, when I might need to use the buffet for serving.
On the table I set a vintage oval white lace tablecloth that is 40 years old and in excellent condition.
 
 I have enjoyed this my entire married life and love it.
Thank you for visiting my Cottage Vintage Style dining room with a farmhouse style look.

  Have a great week
 
 
Hugs,
Celestina Marie

I remember when you were painting your hutch, last year! It is beautiful! Your china just pops with the black background...it is all so elegant, yet comfy, and inviting!
I adore your little platter with the pink roses!!

I have been tossing around the idea to paint my china cabinet black also. I painted an Italian provincial gold desk, black, and it is lovely. The china cabinet will be a real project for me. Where do you buy the stained glass effect? I like that idea a lot. My cabinet is one of the first things we purchased when we were first married but now it looks tired (like me.LOL!)

OCH, PRZEPIĘKNY kredens, a te szklane ornamentowe drzwiczki, piękne gałki szufladowe, wygladają jak marmur :)
No i ptaszki pod kloszami skradły moje serce,
Celeste, cudnie :)

Hi Friends,
Just wanted to add in here, the appliques can be found at Joann's in all sorts of different designs. Prices and colors vary.

What a gorgeous piece, Celeste! It shows off your white pieces beautifully. Love the appliques you added to the glass doors. I had to give my hutch up {my daughter has it now} when we moved, but I always loved the glass doors on mine.

Oh girlfriend....you didn't say...but I gotta know...where did you get those stained glass appliques? That is way cool!

WOW! That is beautiful. I love how painting all the pieces black tied everything together. And that leading on the glass of the hutch is perfect! I hope you NEVER take it off- unless your style changes, of course!;>)

The whole room is just amazing....so very pretty. Hope you are having an awesome Monday. xo Diana

Celestina,
Your hutch is simply gorgeous. I love the contrast with the white dishes against the black hutch. The black and white tea pot caught my eye also. My husband gave me a hutch many years ago, and it is my favorite piece of furniture that was made in Italy. I will never part with it. Our hutches say a little bit about ourselves, and we can put so many treasured items in them. I loved browsing through yours.

First thing I saw was the stained glass windows, how smart of you to remove the grids and put them in their place! The black looks stunning too, really gives it all a dramatic look. Your home looks beautiful and so welcoming Celeste! Your tablecloth is gorgeous too,so nice that it has withstood so many years for you. ~Diane

What a beautiful farmhouse cottage dining room, Celestina! I love your black hutch, all of your white lovelies are a perfect contrast. And I am drooling over your silver coffee pot! The wood and stained glass appliques are such a great idea. It all looks so inviting and pulled together!! Have a great night:)
