Look for Less: Sara Ruffin Costello’s Kitchen
Nice kitchen, right? It’s massive! The actual kitchen with the actual appliances is to the right of the those stools, but I’m just going to concentrate on the sitting areas.
I think it gives a similar effect and it’s only $20 a yard.
Moving on to the dining area I would get these chairs:
They run $93 per chair and you can them in a black finish like the ones in our inspiration shot for an additional $3 per chair. Not bad!
For our pedestal table I would hit Craigslist. I always see many models being sold. I think you would have your pick.
Another option would be to get an unfinished pedestal table. This way you don’t have to deal with sanding in order to get the limed affect our inspiration shot has.
To the left of the dining area there is a console table, topped with a mirror that steals the show for me!
Console Table Look a-like:
Yes it’s not the right color, but for $142.00 it has the good bones that mimic our inspiration all we need is a quick coat of white!
The table is filled with a variety of topiaries and paints. They add a lovely touch of nature and can be picked up at local nurseries.
For an inexpensive ornate mirror I always head to Ebay and search for SYROCO. It gives you the look of something ornate and normally faux gold, but it’s plastic meaning a low price point for us.
This mirror was going for $82.00 again just an addition of white paint and we are almost finished!
In this picture we see a bit of the sitting area as well.
The settee used in our inspiration piece was a vintage find. Now if you have the time you can hit your local thrift shops, ebay, and craigslist to snag one as well. I did a quick search and came up empty handed.
For immediate gratification I would pick this up:
It’s only $349.99 with the trim pieces all painted in a white/cream and then with a bit of wood stain to rub on for an antique looked I think it would work nicely in the space.
For our toss pillow I would get a yard of this for $16.99
To finish it up we need our token sea grass rug. For $76.00 I think it works well with our budget.
Just perfect! Now all we need is the rest of Sara Ruffin Costello’s stylish home.
