Valentine Bakers Rack

I don't decorate much  for Valentines Day.   In fact I don't have any Valentine decorations.  But my bakers rack needed to be redone so I thought I would redo it with red and white.  I got out my red and white dishes (I did find 3 heart shaped ones I had forgotten about).  Here is the simple display I came up with.

This is more like the true color of the walls.  It's called Old Canal by Benjamin Moore

I think this will do until I start decorating for Spring.  I have an old hutch that I'm planning to paint white to use here instead of the bakers rack.

I hope you all have a fantastic week.  I am linking to these great parties.  Stop on over and see what creative ideas are going on there.

Hi Barb! The little red and white ramikins are so daughter loves to put her syrup in those little dishes. Hope you're doing well! andrea@townandprairie

I'd have never thought to house-decorate for Valentines...a special touch.

Diana LaMarre said...

I think that looks great, Barb. Love the red stripes on the heart-shaped dishes.

Your wall color is very similar to the color I have in my bathroom.

Barb said...

Hi Barb, it looks delightful. Red is so cheerful, isn't it? I love Valentines and you have inspired me to do a little Valentine decorating.

Have a wonderful day!

Barb, Love your wall color! Your baker's rack with the red and white dishes and red tulips is so pretty. Can't wait to see the hutch when you get it painted.

Hi Barb,
Oh I love your valentine display on the bakers rack. So pretty. It is amazing what we have to pull a vignette together when we look around our homes. I don't have too much in the valentine decor either, but after I looked around the other day, I had a few things to pull out and enjoy till St. Patrick's day. I'm half Irish, so I have more of that. LOL

Love your red and white. So pretty. Looking forward to seeing your painted hutch too.

Happy February,
Hugs, Celestina Marie

All the red and white looks so pretty. You know, I never decorate for Valentine's Day - but it really brightens things up for February! After seeing yours', I think I'll start doing that, too.

I don't decorate for Valentines either, but after seeing what you've done, I might just have to get into the spirit of the holiday. Your Bakers Rack looks great!

Hi Barb,

I hope that you are well.

I am busy playing catch-up and because I have missed so much over the last few weeks, don't think that I will ever really catch-up with everything!!

I have missed your lovely blog and photos but will have a good read now.

Have a great weekend

x Fiona
