How to go Industrial Vintage in your Kitchen

Going Industrial Vintage also known as

 Industrial Chic

in the kitchen can be easy...

if you know the most important

elements to pull it off...


I recommend starting with a color 
palate in your kitchen that is
 very neutral
light colors, such as white or linen..
as this will enhance
the  metal and wood textures
of the industrial items.

1. Storage Containers

 These boxes and bins
 be found in thrift stores, yard sales
be sure to check Ebay
and Etsy for good deals!

2. Lighting

These lights can add so much
of the industrial element
to your kitchen/dining room
 Some of these lights are easy enough to
make yourself if you are crafty

see step by step directions:

3. Vintage Signage 

Old signage can be difficult to 
 and pricey
its OK to buy repos
or make your own..
