Lakehouse Kitchen (10)

Imagine this bright and cheerful kitchen stuck in a 70’s timewarp.

Without before pictures (which I sure wish I had) it’s really hard to imagine. When my sister-in-law Gina and her husband George first purchased this lake house the best word to describe it was brown.

The mantle over my stove and the space above the refrigerator were the only Kitchen spots to get much Christmas attention this year.

I’ve had the burlap wrapped twin trees for years and they’re still one of my favorites. Can you believe when I first bought them I covered up the burlap with velvet and toile. They looked really cute that way but now I’m loving the burlap.
