Rustic Summer Centerpiece

Since we’ve redone this half of the kitchen I’ve been on the lookout for ways to decorate our newly transformed table for each season, yet blend in with my decor. 

A room filled with furniture and a large window

One of my favorite finds is this ($1) wooden toolbox that was already painted and distressed. (Funny story: when we went on our vacation the owners of the house we rented had this exact same toolbox! Bet I found mine cheaper!)

My sweet blogging friend Amy from Atta Girl Says (and fellow host of our weekly link party) gave me the Coke bottles and the blue bottle was from our daughter’s frugal wedding decorations. I used ripped fabric from our shabby chic dining chairs and burlap strands to wrap around the bottles.

The flowers were purchased half off at Hobby Lobby and were the perfect accent to bring out the blue and yellow in the centerpiece.

    1. Thank you, Linda, for such kind words. I do love mason jars and actually have another project coming from our bathroom makeover! It just may take me a while to get to it! Have a great weekend!

    1. Hey, Vanessa. Thanks for taking the time to check out my summer centerpiece. I love the blue and yellow colors, so different for me. I love when an experiment in decorating turns out great!

    1. Thanks so much, Nancy! I love the colors, too. It’s really different than anything we’ve done before and it’s become my happy colors! I’ll tell my hubby his DIY mason jar chandelier is infamous. That’ll crack him up!

      Are you going to Haven? I just got a ticket, but that’s all so far!

  1. Love the colors you have used. Could you please email me the name of the yellow paint. That is just the color I need for my kitchen. Thanks, Melind

    1. Hi, Melinda. Sorry it took me a little bit to find the paint color. The paint is Behr Premium Plus Ultra Paint and Primer in One (from Home Depot) in yellow beg. (the rest was hidden by a tag) with the #7242W. Hope that helps!

    1. Hey, Kirby! I’m glad you like my centerpiece! I am so thrilled with the colors and decor and the kitchen that I don’t even mind cooking quite so much πŸ™‚ And yes, I’m going to Haven! Are you?
