Decorating Kitchen Cabinet Tops

Here are the tops of my kitchen cabinets. I tried to create a warm and inviting atmosphere with color and greenery. As you can see I like lots of things, I created different levels just like in the bookcases to create some interest.




It was really hard to get good pictures, my kitchen is pretty small and there's a light hanging over the island that kept getting in the way.
I've been really busy the last couple of days making things for my Etsy Store and a craft show I'm doing in Dec. I'm excited about Christmas, but it's also a very busy time as we all know. Also look for my blog give away soon!!

~Gorgeous Kristen! I always love your sense of style and balance. The fronts of your cabinets are beautiful too. Thanks for coming by and complimenting my tablescape. It was a spur of the moment decision to post it. I must admit I don't even own a tablecloth but I have four sets of dishes. Go figure...~Melissa

Wow! I found your blog by accident and quickly scrolled through all the lovely photos.

I'm a new blogger as well, hope you'll stop by...

Your cabinet tops look beautiful! You've given your kitchen so much personality with the beautiful decor on top of the cabinets. laurie

Kristen said...

I admire your sense of style

"Blossom" said...

Wow, wish mine looked like this.
Years ago I collected baskets (longerberger) and I put them on top of the cabinets the day we moved in and never removed them.
Don't don't necessary look good in the home so I might put them on e-bay and see them.
Your home is absolutly beautful and the color schemes are lovely.

Kristen, I love your kitchen. We need to redo are kitchen in white cabinets and yellow walls. Not sure of the counter top yet! Did you by change get your book yet. I accidently switched the lil' card I put in your package with someone elses. I am sorry. I hope it didn't confuse you. I saw yours on my sewing table the other day! Made me so mad! I was trying to keep that from happening and it did anyway. hugs, Ellen

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Hi Kristen, love your house and can not wait till you decorate for Christmas....I lost my blog list a while back and I just noticed I missed putting you back on it, I'm sorry. You will be added now, for sure.

Hugs,
Chris

tardevil said...

You did a great job up there! I know how hard it is to get everything looking just right on top of them! It takes SeVEraL trips up & down the ladder!

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Hey, I am starting... to feel a little better. I don't think I will be going back to the floral shop. I can't have any set back with my shoulder. This was way too scarey for me. I am not sure what I'll do. Maybe just stay at home and enjoy my beautiful life.
Hugs, Terrie

Sorry for the stupid question. What is the best search engine http://google.com or http://yahoo.com?

Joan said...

Great ideas. Love the tops.

Brian Walls said...

When we moved into our new house we need to fix an existing kitchen cabinet. These guys had an exact match! Amazing. . .

Thanks for the post. It can be really hard putting together an

So make sure you work with professionals.

This post was great. Really informative. If you need resources for a sober escort then you should check these guys out and get your life back on track.

Being a birth injury attorney I found this article to be very informative. Help is out there and it’s easier to find if you know what you’re looking for.

stacy said...

Sweet ideas! Thanks for posting. When I was looking for new kitchen cabinets I went with these guys. Great prices and selection.

Dallas said...

If your interested in a recycled rubber playground then you should use this company they’re great.

Betty819 said...

This is one reason why I like to be able to decorate above my cabinets. It adds such character and something special to the kitchen. My kitchen is screaming 1977 drop ceiling plexiglass panels and hopefully I will be able to have that changed in 2012..It's on my list of goals to accomplish. We've only been here going on 7 yrs. so gradually changed things over to reflect our style of living, not the previous owners. Now if I could only win the Md. lottery!

You may have trouble with addiction and need info on a depression treatment center this is a resource that you can trust.

Joan Brown said...

For over 10 years I was an addict and needed dual diagnosis treatment help. When I got the help I needed, I could start living my life again.

Joan Brown said...

Thanks for the great article. I needed help with getting together my ipad home control and I found many great resources on the web.

Brian said...

This is a great post for anyone that needs help with finding legal advice. I found a sexual harassment attorney in the Los Angeles area that helped me get to the bottom of my civil suit.

Patti said...

Looks fabulous...you have a way of grouping items together nicely - your home is lovely!

Brian said...

Great info, thanks for posting. If you are looking for a best tailgating grill then you really shouldn’t look any further. This thang rocks!
