Our kitchen updo is coming along…slow..ly.
But if there is anything I learned from last year is to enjoy the journey.
Today I want to share with you our Kitchen Updo…Chippy Cottage Railing.
I found a chippy cottage railing over two years ago…..
just before I got sick, and it’s been sitting in our basement ever since. Waiting.
Until we started our kitchen updo…we hired a contractor for our deck remodel and for installing the railing.
The railing was too long and not tall enough. I think the railing came from a front porch. It definitely was outside.
The first thing was to raise the newel post up to raise the railing to code. Then he removed 4 of the ballister’s for the railing to fit.
I’m so happy and can’t believe after 2 years it’s finally been installed.
A few plants in a few vintage dishes. I also placed Lilly’s of the Valley from our garden in a crystal vase.
My maternal grandmother, Mamie, loved Lilly’s of the Valley. I planted them in our garden to remind me of her. Oh gosh they have the best fragance!
So chippy, cute and a charming addition to our kitchen!
