Farmhouse Kitchen Decorating Stenciled Wooden Sign and Spring Flowers

Last week I was in the mood to do a little farmhouse kitchen decorating.

I made a new sign, did some rearranging and cleaning, and then the most wonderful thing happened.

I woke up the next morning to take photos and discovered the weather had changed from winter to  spring overnight.  We went from temps in the 40’s to temps in the low 60’s.

I knew it wouldn’t last long, but I was so happy for every single warmer degree that I ran to the store and bought some spring flowers to celebrate.

I could almost pretend it was a warm spring day.

I’m adding more black touches in my kitchen to tie in with the new kitchen table my husband built, and the new shelves I installed last week.

I made the new sign on a piece of board left over from my wooden tote making marathon a few weeks ago.

Here’s a little farmhouse kitchen decorating tip – rather than hide cast iron skillets in a cabinet, I love to display mine on my walls.

They are all in easy reach above my stove.

I love that they are functional wall art and save on cabinet space.

I have a total of twelve skillets on the wall in all different sizes.  I used antique square peg nails to hang them.  They were a wonderful find I got at a flea market.

I filled one of my smaller ironstone pitchers with more flowers for the corner wall next to the stove.

I’m not sure what the little metal rack on my wall was originally used for, but I use it to hold measuring cups and spoons.

I won it and the metal pie tin at an auction several years ago.

I really have to get myself to some more auctions.  I miss finding wonderful vintage pieces like these.

I’ve got one more kitchen project to share soon, and it’s an easy one!

On another note, today is my youngest son’s birthday.

It’s so hard to believe my “baby” is 17 years old!

Vaya con Dios,

    Just love the idea of your iron skillets on the wall! I’m in the midst of putting up some planks to do a “pan wall” but was going to hang my Revere ware. I like your idea better! I have some hooks that are just right for them too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. The skillets look great displayed that way…love the idea of using the square peg nails to hold them!
    Happy birthday to your son!

  3. My friend has her cast iron hung from an old wooden horse yoke with old hooks and it looks Fabulous!

  4. I just love everything that you have done and it really keeps me coming back for more , And on another note , Happy Birthday to your son .

  5. I always enjoy reading your posts and see your creativity in your home and would do the same many times. On a personal note, it is meaningful how you sign off because I speak Spanish and I live in NM. Que Dios le Bendiga!

    • Thanks Karen. I used to sign off with “blessings”, but one year ago, I changed it to Vaya con Dios” in honor of my mother in law who passed away. She said that to my husband on the phone when he was on his way to come see her when she was in hospice. It was one of the last things she was able to say to him. I lived in New Mexico for over 20 years. I do miss our little home in Corrales, but we go back often since both of our families are there.

  6. Looks Great ! Love the pans !

  7. Looks good…as always.

  8. Hey Angie, 12 cast iron skillets is a wonderful thing. I’ve been meaning to tell you I saw the spread on you guest cottage in Farmhouse (??) magazine. Congrats. It is a beautiful write-up.

  9. I love my cast iron skillets and if I had enough wall space in my kitchen I would display them. But, alas, all of the walls in my small kitchen are covered by cupboards! I keep my skillets in my oven!

    It is frigid here in Michigan right now. I would love to have some 60 degree weather right about now! But the forecast is for low 30’s for the next week or so. I’m dying for spring.

    I think I”ve missed a couple of your posts having to do with your black kitchen projects. I’ll have to go back and find them. Also, I want to see the new table. So I’ll be looking for that and anxious to see what you’ve been up to.

  10. I love the new self rising farmhouse sign. Its vintage and neutral and fun. We still have winter here for at least two months and I am longing for spring flowers as well. They certainly do brighten the mood.

  11. Your cast iron pans make a really striking display, Angie–and so handy, too. Your new graphic sign looks perfect hanging amongst them. Thanks so much for linking up your posts with us at Vintage Charm 🙂

  12. Love the cast iron skillets on the wall. Those are great farmhouse decor.
    Thanks for sharing at Funtastic Friday!

  13. The iron skillets are a really nice touch. If I saw that sign in a store I would be so tempted to buy it. Great job. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty
