I have a modest, but growing, collection of Pioneer Woman kitchen items. Right now, I have 3 sets of shakers, a butter dish, canisters, a recipe box, a paper towel holder, a colander, measuring spoons, a spoon rest, two partial sets of tumblers, and a cream and sugar set. The vibrant colors and variety of shapes in my Pioneer Woman Coffee Station and Sign are perfect for the transition from winter to spring.
Let’s start with the tiered tray. I have three sets of shakers. Anytime I see a Ree Drummond item at a thrift store, I buy it. The red and turquoise in most of her designs are a perfect compliment to my cottage kitchen. The dark turquoise shakers are Vintage Floral.
The shakers shaped like a hurricane lamp are from the Flea Market pattern. This pattern is one of my favorites.
The shakers on the top tier have the Poinsettia pattern. I painted the “Coffee” sign using this pattern as a guide. The Dazzling Dahlia measuring spoons have been used sparingly in my kitchen. They’re too pretty to break.
I used Apple Barrel White, Aquamarine, and Crimson to paint the sign. An old quart-sized can of dark turquoise was perfect for making the center dots and writing “Coffee.” A 1” sponge brush and a liner brush were the only brushes needed.
When everything was nice and dry, I took my sign outside and sprayed it with Aleene’s Acrylic Sealer (I always use Gloss).
The over-sized Floral Turquoise coffee cup was purchased recently. I like the bigger coffee cups because they work well with the largest cup setting on my Keurig.
One of my children made the tissue-papered Coke bottle vase in vacation bible school around 15 years ago. If my children make something that isn’t made of paper (and even if it is), I usually keep it forever. What store bought vase could be prettier than this one?
The Flea Market cream and sugar set are gorgeous, in my opinion. I really appreciate the way the Pioneer Woman patterns can be easily mixed and matched.
The little yellow bowl holding the artificial sugar packets is the smallest lidded bowl in the Flea Market set. The only negative experience I’ve had with her products is with the lids that came with these bowls. They do not last.
The melamine spoon rest is from the Shadow Rose pattern. I styled it several different ways in my Pioneer Woman Coffee Station.
The pot rest/pot holder was made by my husband’s great grandmother, Edna, in the earlier days of our marriage. She was in her nineties when she made it, and I will always treasure it.
The patterned yellow wood with the glass knob is the top to a Pioneer Woman Blossom Jubilee recipe box.
The “curtain” in the background was made from a Pioneer Woman Vintage Bloom placemat. I have considered making a kitchen curtain from a tablecloth as well. It would probably be less expensive than buying fabric the normal way.
I found the cloisonné bunny at TJ Maxx. He was just my style!
Some people wouldn’t think of collecting Pioneer Woman serveware, because it is common, and widely available right now. However, most things won’t be available forever. If you like Ree’s kitchen items, buy them. I have sold a few of her things in my eBay store, The Little Dish Cottage. The older items (that you can’t get in stores now) always sell quickly. Also, when I purchase a vintage item for myself, it’s usually an everyday item I remember from my childhood; like my Avon decanters or my Homer Laughlin grocery store plates.
I hope you enjoyed my Pioneer Woman Coffee Station and Sign!
