Jacquie's Up-Cycle Nation: Kitchen Kitsch

January is a perfect time to liven up the living spaces.  With Super Bowl parties and Valentine celebrations fast approaching, give the kitchen a kick of up-cycled kitsch to keep guests delighted. 
These Etsy up-cycle artists have that perfect kitchen item ready to roll!
Metal whimsy is the order of the day at kathrynarnett. Angels, birdhouses and floral bouquets come to life in brightly painted recycled glory.  Give that special hostess the gift of functional art with these winged magnets!
Wine gets eternal life at winecountrycraftsman where stem to barrel is repurposed into intoxicating home d├ęcor and functional wares.  Eco friendly designs that pair well with any home style.
Get the conversation started with a fun up-cycled wooden panel sign from RelicRedo.  Check out this Etsy shop for more shabby chic rehabs and kitchen vintage.

Humor and functionality combine at orangecottagedoor where everyday items are topped with the unexpected. This store has that perfect centerpiece for the superstar party!
 Nothing screams kitsch like vintage cookbooks! For an appetizing selection head over to OldeVintageGoodies where all things retro-entertaining gather. 
Stop "borrowing" (you know who you are!)  barware from the pub and offer guests a customized glass up-cycled from brew faves. BelangerDesigns crafts drinking glasses, vessels and vases from empty wine and beer bottles.  From everyday to special occasion, this is your one stop shop!

To find more up-cycled kitschy decor search "up-cycled kitchen" on Etsy.
