Kitchen Console Table

Hello Everyone!
I hope your Christmas was merry.
We did not travel this year and did have a quiet one.
I do miss my family in Florida very much and have
many travel plans coming up for 2010. I can't wait!
I received a Kirklands gift card from my in laws.
Most of you know it's my favorite place to shop.
Join me and I'll show you what I found.
It's a new kitchen console table.
I had a table here before but moved it to the guest room.
It's a dark wood with an iron scroll design.
Plenty of storage for linens.
The scrolls open for displaying my favorite roo's.
More storage inside. Another set of dishes maybe?
It's a perfect match to our Ashley dinette with the rope trim.
My parents sent us some red roses.
They are cheerful and festive looking.
I'm enjoying this new piece of furniture.
Have a great week!

The console is beautiful, Melissa. What a lovely gift (!) It matches your breakfast table just wonderful...I love your taste. It was nice to get a full view from your kitchen,I have seen your nook but never the length of the room. How lovely it must be to have all that room!!

Happy to hear you had a nice Christmas. Here's hoping your New Years is wonderful, too!!


Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That's a really beautiful little piece, Melissa! I like that it doesn't take up a lot of room, but it looks like you'll be able to store some linens and dishes in it {plus decorate the top}. Enjoy it!

susan said...

Melissa-That console table looks as if it is meant to be there! What a great gift! I love the detail and storage!

Liz said...

Hi Melissa!

Oh, how I love your new console table...beautiful! I love how you displayed all of your lovely decorative items. The picture frames are gorgeous and I LOVE the Roosters. I like the sconces and your fabulous lamps.

It sounds like you had a very nice Christmas! I can’t wait to hear about your upcoming travel plans…fun, fun!

Your home is beautiful as always. Thanks so much for sharing.

Have a Happy New Year!

Hugs and Love,


Denise said...

Ooh I love your new console, I've seen that before in Kirklands and would really love it! Happy New Year to you :)

Melanie said...

Very nice. I know that you love Kirkland's and you find some great things there. I haven't had the same luck as you but I haven't given up either. That was a really nice gift from your in laws. You had a very Merry Christmas:)

Angela said...

Hello Melissa,

Hey Melissa, I'm the bff of Miss Janice. I love your decorations. I don't have a blog but should. I'm just about ready to get some new kitchen counter tops and love yours. What kind are they. All your decor just looks great.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Melissa, your new console is just gorgeous, and you always do the most beautiful vignettes. I love the lamps and all the pretty pieces you have decorated the console with. Your home is so lovely and so welcoming. I'm glad you had a great Christmas. Hugs, Marty

Traci@ Beneath My Heart said...

I love the new console. It looks perfect in the kitchen. I know you will enjoy the extra storage. We can never have too much of that, right? You kitchen is gorgeous! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and may you have a blessed New Year!

Lynette said...

What a lovely piece Melissa and so perfect for you! Your in-laws know just what to get you when it came to Christmas! I love all the scrolls and details on it and I know you'll have fun with it all through the years - can't wait to see it.

Glad your holiday was Merry!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

texasdaisey said...

What a great gift! That is really beautiful and it looks so nice in your room.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Melissa...
Sweetie that console is absolutely exquisite. I love the color, and I so love the iron scroll work on each side. Makes you able to display things to add color to each side of your center area. I love it.

I love your nook area with your table, and love the color of the floors. How pretty it is. A happy home makes for a GREAT cook.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. Happy New Year.

Country hugs...Sherry

PAT said...

It's a beautiful piece, Melissa!

ceekay said...

What fun! My console came from Kirkland also! A while back though. Your new piece looks fabulous!

Jenny said...

What a fabulous gift! Such great taste you have. And I love the red roses in the striped vase. That is a neat look. I have a few old vases I may try masking off and spraying with stripes. I like the graphic punch of that display. New dishes? Go for it! Let the merry and bright continue!

Manuela@TPOH said...

What a great gift! Some people don't like receiving GC's but I love them. Then I can get what I want. Love the console - who couldn't use more storage. It's beautiful!


Jill said...

I love your new table! The scroll work is beautiful. I have never been to a Kirklands and am now thinking I might need to find one.

Happy New Year!
~ Jill

Barb said...

I agree what a wonderful gift and matches perfect.

Melissa Miller said...

Hello Teresa Jane,
Thank you so much for stopping by! I do recognize your pretty face and picture from Miss Janice's blog. Come by here anytime you like okay.

Our dark green granite is from Lowes and is called "Ubatuba". We really love it too! Let me know what you end up with. You should start a blog as well. I would visit you for sure.

~Happy New Year To You! :)

~Kristen~ said...

Oh Melissa, your kitchen is so beautiful, just like the rest of your gorgeous home!!! I *looove* the new console table!!! A perfect fit, and all the extra storage is a great bonus.

I hope you had wonderful Christmas, sweet friend!!! xoxo

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

And it is a beautiful piece of furniture, Melissa! They sure know how to shop for you, huh?

Barb @ GritsandGlamour said...

Hi Melissa - some think a gift card is too impersonal, I say they are PERFECT! What's more thoughtful than allowing someone to choose something they really love? And I love what you chose, I have seen this oiece there before and thought about using it as a console table in my bathroom for extra storage. The piece is so adaptable if/when you ever move. Great choice! Glad to hear you had a lovely Christmas in North Carolina. Have a great New Year, too. Blessings, Barb

Rhonda said...

Hi Melissa,
The console is gorgeous, and looks perfect! I also received some Kirklands gift cards, and can't wait to get there!
I hope your Christmas was wonderful.

squawmama said...

Just beautiful Melissa... Loved the way you had it decorated... Have FUN & Happy New Year!


Rita said...

What a beautiful piece you selected. Your Kirland's store much be a lot better/bigger than mine...I've never seen anything like that our my mine.

Lori said...

I am loving that table ~ good choice and it does go so well in your dining room. Glad to hear you had a wonderful Christmas.


Very nice and so elegant. I love your kitchen and your clean and shiny wood floors. I have the same in my kitchen but with three puppies it is hard to keep it clean and shiny! My husband bought me a buffer from Oreck and it does get them clean but five minutes later the dogs are in and it is dirty again!!!!

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Melissa, I'm so glad you had a wonderful Christmas! My family finally got to come over so we had a good one too. I still can't believe all the snow we got!

I love your new console!! It is just beautiful and it fits just perfect in that spot. I love the wood and iron together and it is perfect with the breakfast table. You did good!! Happy New year! Kristen

Amy said...

Very pretty! It's very nice to have thoughtful in-laws, isn't it? Mine are wonderful too :)

Love the kitchen Melissa! I'm on the hunt for a antique Hoosier cabinet for my kitchen. Do you know what they are? They were made in Indiana where I live. How's the kitty doing? Sending love,Lori

The Quintessential Magpie said...

What a wonderful piece, Melissa! That's a great gift! Perfect spot for it there. :-)

I'm glad to hear you had a nice Christmas...we did, too! It was so nice to have our youngest daughter back up here and her hubby here and not in Iraq!
Wishing you and yours a New Year FULL of blessings!

Kathy said...

JDaniel4's Mom said...

You have such a lovely kitchen. Your new piece fits in perfectly.

Stopping by from SITS!

{ L } said...

Oh wow. Your kitchen floors are GORGEOUS!! I want them in my house. :-/ And the red roses are the perfect holiday treat. How special. I enjoyed this ENTIRE post! Also, I've been thinking of you and wondering how your journey toward health is going?

Southern Savvy said...

Love that console Melissa!

Joy said...

What a nice present, I love the console. And the roses are pretty and I bet they smell nice too. Hope you have a Happy New Years!

The console is beautiful.Great storage space...thanks for sharing...Pat H
Happy New Year!

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

I am so very jealous and let me tell you why! I just found out about Kirkland's like a couple months ago, and every time I visit family in TX and TN ..... we stop in at Kirkland's. We don't have them in WA, and I swear my entire house would come from Kirkland's if I lived near one. THAT IS JUST GORGEOUS and love your decorating style!!

Cass @ That Old House said...

The console is gorgeous! It's perfect with the dining set, too -- wonderful. Your taste is exquisite - everything looks perfect!

I'm sorry you were missing your family at Christmas ... sometimes it is tough to be a grownup, isn't it? No, really -- I mean that! Christmas is a time when I think we all would like to be kids again, or at least be with our families. But sometimes it just doesn't work out.

Dion sends his fondest regards! He is amazing -- he can eat pretty much anything, and does, and is fine. He makes me NUTS because he can open just about anythng and climb just about anywhere, and he can be so sneaky. He stole the gingerbread right out from under our noses, and hid under the table and ate it with us in the room!

Have a blessed New Year, Melissa. You are one of the bright spots in my blogging world!


Together We Save said...

You have such a beautiful home, the console is beatutiful.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Go here:

I know when you see my warmer, you'll be reminded, lol! Enjoy!!! Also, my demonstrator is the BEST!

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Melissa, oh, goodness, it is just lovely and you have it displayed so beautifully. I love it.

Happy New Year and many blessings to you.

Barb ♥

Connie said...

Your home looks so warm and inviting. Your console table is beautiful and adds so much to the already beautiful room!

You have a talent! Glad you had a good Christmas.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

What a gorgeous piece of furniture. I too just adore Kirklands.

The American Homemaker said...

Beautiful! I haven't been in Kirklands for a while... time to go :)

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Happy New Years to you and Alex sweet your new table and your so right it matches your DR set to a tee...How was your Christmas my friend...I wished mine had been quiet but with all the family I have and the babies coming out of my ears it was anything but quiet ha ha!! Melissa the one thats 6 months old crawls and was into within everything within his reach...I kid you not he was under my stove as I was trying to cook on Sunday ha ha!! He almost tripped me 2 times while I was cooking and his mama is brain dead and just sits there texting her friends instead of watching the little guy I think I lost 5 lbs just running after him all day ha ha!! I have not a clue what it is about new mama's these days...and to think she going to be on her own when Jacob gets deployed....what a nightmare that will be then ha ha!! Girl I kid you not I have been in my old red robe since everyone left here on Sunday night...I hope you guys are doing great and you made out like a bandit at Christmas...Many blessing to you this next year....Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria aka calif Mom


The table is gorgeous! It does match so well with everything you already have in there. Good buy! We used to have a Kirklens in our mall.... used to :( It was a great store. Blessings!

3LittleByrds said...

Melissa, love your find. I love Kirkland's too. It looks great in your home.

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Hi Melissa,
I'll probably be scarce for the rest of the year as I prepare (and then recover) from my New Years party tomorrow. I'll have around 15 kids here, what was I thinking?! I'm sure it will be fun if I can get things done in time. So I wanted to come and say I hope you have a joyous New Years and I can't wait to read all your posts in 2010!
Hugs and love,

Stacey said...

Hi girl! I just got your note a minute ago and laughed! I came to visit you last night via my brothers computer and in the process realized that my message was showing up with his Google account name. I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it. We've been out of town since the day after Christmas. Just got home and now we are vegging.

Your new console is so perfect for your kitchen! I love pieces of furniture like that in the kitchen. A great place to put pretties and to store some too. :)

I'm excited about a new year. How about you? I'll be back to posting soon.

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Isn't it fun getting to pick out your own gifts!! I have some money that I get to do the same and it's burning a hole in my pocket!!

I do love what you picked out and bet it will be filled with new dishes soon too!!

Got to spend a few days with my sis- just got back- had a blast!

Have a wonderful New Years!!


I don't know if I had told you how nice you blog look is!! I love the tabs on the top- mine sure needs to get tidied up a bit!
