Holy smokes you guys. This week has been the WEIRDEST. Seriously. Well I guess I shouldn’t say the whole week, but the past two days at least. It’s just been chaotic around here. It started on Wednesday when our brand new appliances got delivered. Yay for brand new appliances! But it ended up being a fiasco. The new refrigerator we got didn’t work from the second it was plugged in. Literally. It just didn’t work. The delivery guys left it and basically said, “good luck figuring it out. See ya!” Not cool, right? Long story short we discovered that something was wrong with the compressor thingamajig and the whole entire fridge needed to be replaced. Now just imagine if you will how a very large pregnant lady reacts to finding out her brand new fridge needs to be replaced. AND to make it even more fun we had no place to put the food from our old refridgerator, which the delivery guys were so kind to haul away. It was a disaster. We ran out to buy ice and packed up as much food as possible in the ridiculously small coolers we have (remind me to buy large coolers!) and still ended up losing most of what we had in the fridge. It was a disaster. Thankfully we got a replacement fridge Thursday morning and all is well. But dang. That wasn’t so fun. And is anyone else noticing a trend with our kitchen remodel? Seriously now, why in the world does everything have to be so difficult with this makeover? For heaven’s sake, can’t anything just go right the first time! Gah. I’m sorry guys, I’ll stop complaining. Things could always be much worse. Besides, all’s well that ends well, right? Something like that. Anyway, let’s get to Friday Favorites and a few things I’ve been loving this week!
After a bit of a hiatus from working on our kitchen remodel, we’re finally ramping things up again and getting some much needed work done. And that means I’ve had kitchen decor on the brain! I picked up these insanely cute farmhouse style napkins from World Market recently and I LOVE them. And bonus points, they’re super affordable. I think each one was only a few bucks.
I also grabbed these adorable ceramic canisters while I was there too. How cute are these?! I got the tea and coffee canisters, but they also have one that says sugar. I’m planning to do open shelves in our kitchen and I think these will be perfect!
Here’s a few other farmhouse kitchen goodies I’m loving:

I’ve also been drooling over a few of my favorite farmhouse style kitchens this week. I’m trying to make a decision on our countertops and I just can’t commit to anything yet. I told you guys I’m indecisive, right? I snapped this photo in Magnolia Market during our recent trip and I continually come back to it for inspiration. I adore the open shelving and I’m on the hunt for brackets exactly like those.
I’m also completely smitten with this kitchen from Farmhouse 5540. I have a thing for wood countertops and this is just perfect. I love those wood tones and headboard! I’m leaning in this direction right now because we could possibly DIY the countertops if we went this route, which would save us a ton of money.
Unfortunately I don’t have a pantry, but if I did I would definitely put a vintage door on that baby. I mean, how stunning is this? I found it on Pinterest and it literally took my breath away when I first saw it. Such a simple and easy idea, but what a big impact this has on the kitchen. Instant charm and character!
All righty guys, that is my Friday Favorites today. All about that farmhouse kitchen inspiration! I am actually sharing a kitchen progress update next week, so stay tuned for that. I have great news to share about our wall of doom project!
Have a fabulous weekend my friends! xoxo
