simple range hood decor

18 September 2014

When I showed you our kitchen, I mentioned that I wasn’t quite sure what was going above the range hood. It  was still blank and white and daring me to do something with it.

This past week when I was unpacking fall décor, I found this sweet wreath that I apparently found at the Goodwill in Virginia on March 23, 2013 for 95 cents. I had completely forgotten about it and there it was smooshed between the fall wreath and Christmas wreath.
95 cents

I left the fall stuff behind and ran upstairs because I had an idea of where it could go…

I just grabbed some white dishes from my white collection that used to be over our kitchen sink,  cut up a dishcloth from the dollar store and made it look like a ribbon

and there we go. It’s not exactly fall or festive, but I wanted something simple and clean that I didn’t have to change through the seasons (unless I want to of course)

Next, I would love to put something under the range hood, but haven’t come across the perfect thing yet. Maybe that will come when we unpack Christmas. :)

So now we’re in the middle of organizing the garage, the boys’ room, planting bushes/landscaping stuff, and bringing fall out -- but at least my range hood is dressed??


  1. Pretty! Once upon a time that was a pricey wreath...can't be sure but either Pottery Barn or Ballards. I love the cut-up-dish-towel for ribbon touch, it's perfect!

    It looks beautiful and so incredibly frugal...I love that!

    I love it, what a great idea and I love the towel ribbon too, perfect.

  4. Very cute! As a recent transplant, 6 hours away from my hometown where I lived my while life, I'd love to hear more on how you find friends and connections in a new place. I am really struggling with that especially having older kids.

  5. I love that wreath! Every time I see one of your frugal finds I want to sneak behind you at the thrift store--just to see what you'll find that I would probably overlook! AMAZING! So I have a suggestion for your back splash. I am in love with silver platters with chalkboard painted centers. I think an oversized oval platter would look so great there--and you could have fun quotes and change it up. Can't wait to see more of your new house!

    Mpwdmom is right - that's the Pottery Barn bay leaf wreath from a few years ago... and it was a LOT more than 95 cents! Great find and your kitchen is beautiful!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
