Bring a play on fresh food to your tabletop surfaces by outfitting melons and pineapples as floral vessels. Choose flowers that fit the vibe and palette of your party, hollow out the center of the melon or pineapple using a kitchen knife, then place a small cylindrical vase inside. Once the flowers are added, the vase becomes completely hidden.
Tiny kitchens can feel claustrophobic when cabinets are towering overhead. Many cooks can't reach what's in them and the overall feeling is boxy and closed in. Get organized and trade the top cupboards for open storage. Consider shelving, pot racks and magnetic knife or spice holders instead. Your kitchen will look more spacious and serve up display space for your favorite dishes, shiny pots and pans, or artwork.
Honed marble is prone to stains, so HGTV's Kitchen Cousins created a custom wood chopping block out of 100-year-old flooring salvaged from homes around the area. A burned-on Kitchen Cousins logo adds a custom touch.
This modern kitchen, including a wall of windows, adds rustic touches with a farmhouse sink, open shelving made of reclaimed wood, and a butcher block island. This kitchen leaves everything on display and accessible. Open shelves provide plenty of storage while keeping everyday serveware, pots and pans within easy reach. For the serious chef, built-in knife slots in this kitchen's butcher-block island keep culinary tools handy.
James Angus and Jamie Bolton used more cabinets from a kitchen renovation to serve as the base for a work station. Knife magnets from Ikea make an ideal solution for drying paint brushes. Soup cans are used to store pens and pencils.
Bring some green to your kitchen with these cute succulent refrigerator magnets. Start by hollowing out a wine cork (about 3/4 of the way down) using a drill with a small spade bit. If you don't have a drill, you can use a steak knife instead, though it will take longer. Attach a magnet to one side of the cork using hot glue. Finally, place a succulent and a small amount of soil inside the cork. Mist with water occasionally to keep the plants hydrated.
