~French Inspiration~

I wanted to share another favorite find from the little French Sale I went to recently.  I've been wanting one of these french body pitchers and i was thrilled to find one in it's original galvanized state.

I have quite a few galvanized pieces in my laundry room so this is where this beauty ended up holding some dried lavendar...yum!  It smells so good.  I love how it looks sitting in front of this old shutter.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I have been wanting to share photos of our laundry room, but still need to paint the cabinets in there...I'm thinking maybe a gray.  Any suggestions?

I'm linking up with these parties today:
Viola-French Inspiration Thursday @ The French Cupboard
Vintage Inspiration Friday @ Common Ground
Featherd Nest Friday @ French Country Cottage

  11. Are the cabinets stained now? if so, you might want to sand a little and try minwax greyed oak-lets the wood come through, but with a great greyed patina much like restoration hardware's pieces. Their finishes are terrific. Have fun!

  17. oh This looks wonderful...great pitcher!
    Love the way it looks near the shutter....I am thinking of grey for my cupboards too.
    Which grey are you considering?....so many...I am conflicted with Grey of white...but grey is so soothing!

  30. I think Annie Sloan in Paris Grey would be amazing! Check out this blog for an idea of what Duck Egg Blue would look like: http://startathome.blogspot.com/
    I found this laundry room the other day at a link party and fell in love.

    Have a great day!

  31. I love those pitchers. I have two of them. And when I went to the flea market yesterday the guy I buy from didn't have any left. I think they are such treasures. Good for you. Looks awesome with the lavender.

  33. I love lavender and it looks beautiful in that old pitcher! I think Paris Gray would be beautiful in our laundry room. But I would paint a sample on the wall first and check the light during the day to see how it would really look. Or on the cabinets...that is what you said i think.

  36. Hi- sorry to be the bearer of bad news but a blog is ripping off your content and passing it as their own. I am furious, they did it to a mate's blog and when I went to look, I googled a line from another of their posts I suspected was copied(one about industrial charm in kitchens), it came back to an old post of yours. I would report them to blogger if I were you. This is the offending site: http://vintage-plus-web.blogspot.com/2012/02/industrial-charm.html
