Pulling It All Together - Coastal Charm

I am loving this new series where we get to have a peak into some of our favorite bloggers homes and today we get a special tour from Linda at Coastal Charm.  She is one of the most gracious bloggers in all of blogland and her home is gorgeous.  I love her style and her creativity.  Grab a drink and sit back, this is one fabulous kitchen filled with tons of charm and inspiration.

 Before we get started here today, I want to say thank you Marty, for inviting me to be a part of your series "Pulling It All Together". It's such an honor to be here, sharing a part of my home with all of you. Marty and I go way back in blogland, I think we have both been blogging for about five years now. Her weekly linky party, was one of the first parties that I ever join in on, and now years later, I still love being a part of it.

For all of y'all that don't already know me, I'm Linda from Coastal Charm, and yes, I live in the deep South! It really wasn't hard to choose which room in my home that I would share here. The kitchen is the hub of our home, so let's see how I pulled it all together, so my family would have a comfy room to hang out in.

                                   Welcome to our kitchen.
                            I wish I could offer you a tall glass of
                            sweet tea, but this internet thing, keeps
                            me from being a good Southern hostess...
                                            sorry y'all!                             

                                 You will see right off the bat, that I LOVE
                                  ironstone, old scales, or anything to do
                                             with the farmhouse style.

                     I was really lucky that I already had these wonderful old
                 brick floors. Nothing screams farmhouse more, than charming
                                                      brick floors!

                            When I purchased this hutch, it was a celery
                             green color, but I recently painted it white.
                             I wanted this room to mainly have only grey,
                             white, cream and a touch of taupe in the color

 My sweet hubs built us this farm table nineteen
years ago, way before they were so "cool".

                             Mr. CC has a good eye for finding some
                             neat items when we are out pickn' for my
                             business Coastal Charm Interiors. This old
                             apple basket, is one of his treasures, that we
                                            enjoy in our kitchen.

 I made my own burlap all know that
DIY folks just can't buy ready made.

                               You can see that, I love using farm fresh
                               items to display with. In my book, there
                                             is nothing better!
                      Back a few years ago, we added white beadboard and
                                  painted the walls grey, so I could get
                                         that farmhouse look in here.

                                  Gotta have a moo cow in the house!

                                   I enjoy re-purposing items, and
                                   here I have one of my bedspring

                                 I found this kitchen island at a discount
                                     store awhile back and I knew right
                                     away, that it was perfect for this
                        space in my kitchen. It had a stainless steel top and
                                     best of all, it had a lot of storage space.

 By adding old chippy painted
items here and there,
you will achieve
the farmhouse style!

                                Fresh flowers from your yard, always
                                            add some charm.

 This is a very lived-in type of kitchen,
I even have my aprons on display
in here.

                                Vintage scales, can be found all over.

                             I hope you enjoyed visiting my kitchen today,
                                    I know I enjoyed having you here.

                    I'd love to have you visit by my blog sometime. You can also
                    keep in touch with me at the following places:
