How To Decorate Above Your Kitchen Cabinets

Hi Everyone!

Today I am in my kitchen and will be sharing with you how I’ve decorated above my kitchen cabinets. I like to use items sparingly to still have enough to create some interest in the kitchen space. I hope you enjoy!

    I love having space above my cabinets to decorate, and loved watching your decorating process because it reminded me so much of myself. *Swivel head to the left; swivel head to the right; scratch temple. Place glass milk jug; take milk jug down; put different item up; take that item down; put milk jug back.* It always takes me hours to get things placed in a way that makes me happy. ☺

    Great ideas!!! The tablecloth would be fantastic for a Cinco de Mayo tablescape!

    Cute shelf going to make one.

  7. Cathy Biller on August 1, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    Really love the section with the enamel coffee pots to the bread box. Oh heck I loved it all. Maybe not so much the white cake plates. You have good ideas and you’re so handy There’s alot of space over you cabinets All I have is boring baskets on top of mine

  8. charlotte Hetherington on August 1, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Looks great I love your enamelware coffee pots I have one that is black and white but I would love a red and white one always on the hunt for those kind of things thanks for sharing

  9. Rebecca Nichols on August 1, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    I so miss not having that space above my cabinets. Absolutely love how you have yours decorated. The table cloth is cute and i love the shelf you made.

  10. Dorothy Dewoody on August 1, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    I loved it all! I have been decorating my space for the summer!

  11. Carol Harner on August 1, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Those coffee pots! Love how it turned out. The shepherds pie dish makes me nostalgic for some comfort foods! Ah, maybe another video topic?

  12. Tammy Royal on August 1, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Looks really pretty!! Love that beautiful tablecloth ❀️

  13. suzanne bartholomew on August 1, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    You did a fantastic job of decorating. Watching this video reminded me I could decorate the top of my refrigerator. The sphere with the arrow pointing towards the ceiling is really cool. Your vignettes look really balanced and that’s not always easy to do. Thanks for another teaching video. I always learn so much. Of course, I love all the touches of red.

  14. Bdiddy on August 1, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    I struggle so much with the above cabinet areas.. Thanks for the video I will see what I can do

  15. the Schwowin's nest on August 1, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Love how you displayed everything and love, love, love the enamel ware!! Very helpful tutorial, thanks Robin!

    I love the way you decorated above your kitchen cabinets. I have always loved enamelware. I have a rectangular covered pan that I like to keep candy in that was my Grandmother’s. Then I have coffee pots and pitchers, etc above my cabinets. I really love your idea with the shelf holding your pyrex. I could really use a shelf like that. Thanks for sharing.

  18. KATHLEEN Lynch on August 1, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    I have a large collection of novelty cruet sets that my late Daughter collected so i have those placed around the top of my cupbourds but you have given me a idea to raise them up then i can put a few more things up there that are taking up room in my cupbourds.thank you .

  19. Larry Debbie on August 1, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    Love this!!!! πŸ’–πŸ¦‹πŸ‘΅

  20. Mehri T on August 1, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Absolutely everything so beautiful ilovet thanks for sharing.

  21. Darlene Holgersen on August 1, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Love how it turned out.. Greet idea with the shelf you made for your dishes.

  22. Dar Still on August 1, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Just beautiful. Simple, but put together perfectly. You cracked me up when you were placing items above sink. Put something on right, look left, for distancing, height, etc. Move it, look left, look right. Really eyeballin’ it. LOL!!!πŸ˜… That was my favorite area too.

  23. cottage creations on August 1, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    Love your above cabinets decor! I know now what to do with some things I need but couldn’t find space for. I’m so inspired! Thank you!!!!!!

  24. Annette Biering on August 1, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    I enjoy watching you do this because I struggle with placing accessories so I tend to not switch up although I love to move furniture around. This looks great.

  25. Laura Steinert on August 1, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    I have wanted to display stuff above my kitchen cabinets since we moved in over three years ago but I have yet to do it. It will be hard to reach as we have the taller size cabinets and they are staggered. I’ll have to start collecting some stuff to put up there.

  26. Rachel Maldonado on August 1, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    OMG! You’ve outdone yourself again. I do have space above my cabinets, but lack the tall ceilings like your home. I do have a few items above the cabinets next to the fridge, which I will definitely be redoing tomorrow. My only problem is that the cabinet tops sink in about two inches, so I have to use things to give the items height and not lose

  27. Trudy's Pink Vintage Cottage on August 1, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    My favourite is that Bread Box and the Enamel Coffee Pots ❀❀❀. Looks great Robin! So fun to change things up πŸ˜€

    Love watching your thought process in this video… everything looks great!!!πŸ‘πŸ»β€οΈ

  30. Mary Cassata on August 1, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    Great video…I love the little dish display cabinet! Thanks for sharing

  31. Vicki Mckenney on August 1, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Everything looks great & I love your new table cloth so cute!!! πŸ₯°

  32. fancypanda on August 1, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Very cool. Thanks for being so specific. I didn’t think about above the cabinets. Mine just look like dishes on top. Will try to make it more appealing now.

  33. Lynne Hampton on August 1, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Hi Robin. I used to have spaces above my cupboards. Use to decorate for every holiday. I miss them. Yours look so pretty. Love your breadbox. Thank you so much for sharing all your decor. Take care. Stay safe

  34. Marti Knapp on August 1, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Love it all. Those cake stands with domes and the white ones too are so nice to have. The center above your sink turned out great. I also love the shelf you made. The tablecloth is so cute. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  35. Paris Day on August 1, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    I hope everyone is doing well and having a beautiful day!

    Very nice way to display pretty items and collections.

  36. crystalsdance on August 1, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Beautiful displays! I have a round and a square chrome cake carriers. But, I nave never seen the rectangle! Just love it!

  37. Cynthia Amitrano on August 1, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    When I had open soffits in my first house, I displayed my collection of new and antique teapots, both stovetop and ceramic. I miss that. I’ve actually been giving a lot away. I sent a mint tea kettle to Nicole Northgarden and an apple tea kettle to Tammy Roberts. I just found another in my fruit room, but I’m keeping that. It’s in my favorite green and very old. Love your enamel coffee pots. Very nicely done and thank you for taking us along.

  38. Sandra Lopes on August 1, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    Hi Robin!!! My kitchen cabinets are made just up to the roofπŸ˜”!!! In my old apartment I had that space and I didn’t like it, can you imagineπŸ™„??? I just love your spruced decor!!!❀️

  39. Julia Cockroft on August 1, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    And your awesome artistic eye comes through again! Having blank spaces between your vignettes β€˜frames’ them and gives the eye rest when viewing your wonderful collections. Using a shelf in that space, to display your Corning Ware & Pyrex, is absolutely ingenious. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» πŸ’–

  41. Sandy Taylor on August 1, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Yay! I love the new look! You have room to add larger pieces or hang stuff in the taller areas to fill in more area. Great idea to put your collections up there to be able to enjoy them daily.

  42. Debi on August 1, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Hee, your just like me…(Course, its true!). I do the same thing, back up..look…change..repeat…❣️
