Today is a spring clean and decorate with me. I will be working in the kitchen and sharing some French country kitchen design ideas to spark your creativity. You’ll love the French country kitchen decor I am setting out today.

To start out, I am looking to clear off my countertops, declutter, add a little bit of spring in here, and brighten things up with some minimal spring decor.

I get my best ideas when I have everything cleared off the countertops and taken out of a room, whenever I decide to add some new decor or seasonal decor, so that is what I'm doing first.

I cleared off the countertops completely besides my toaster oven and a couple of things on the other side by my refrigerator.

By doing so, you get a good idea of what you want to do in a space, and you don't have all that mess in the way to cloud what you're thinking.

So next, I'm going to give my countertops a good clean with some all-purpose cleaner and wipe everything down really well, getting rid of the dust and all that stuff on the backsplash as well.

I like to switch things up every once in a while when I decorate for spring or any season for that matter. Sometimes I like to go through what I already have and kind of mix things up, putting things together differently or switching things around and putting them in different rooms. That way I'm not buying stuff every time there's a new season.

Also, I want to mention that one of the ways I love to clean that gets me motivated is by listening to music or using one of my favorite scented multi-purpose cleaners.

I got these adorable canisters at Kirkland's a couple of years ago, and I love them. I used my Cricut machine to make those pretty little labels and these are just the cutest things ever.

As I mentioned earlier, I love switching things around. It makes me feel like it's new when I didn't really go out and buy anything new, so I'm just placing these back on the counter a little bit differently to make it feel like it's somewhat new but isn't.

It's just something that I like to do when I clean and rearrange stuff. It's like rearranging your bedroom or your living room. It just gives a different feel without having to go out and purchase something new.

I want to share a little trick with you that I like to use on my wooden spoons and spatulas to keep the wood from drying out. I take coconut oil and kind of polish by working the coconut oil in and then drying them off really well with a paper towel.

It just keeps them looking conditioned and stops them from drying out.

For the most part, I wanted to keep things in my kitchen on the neutral side, and I wanted to add something above my stove.

I like to add some type of print and when I was shopping, I found this floral print that I thought would look perfect in this space right here. So I'm going to place this on my backsplash, and I'm going to share how I did that without any nails.

I flipped it over and removed the hooks on the back.

Next, I'm going to take Command strips and place those on the back of the frame then stick it directly onto my backsplash.

If you don't want to put holes in your walls or damage anything, Command strips are amazing, and I love using them.

I went through all the things that I already had, and I found this lavender wreath. I thought it would look really pretty here on this cutting board that I like to hang on the wall and it adds a tiny bit of color.

It definitely says spring, and it adds a freshness here in the kitchen.

I love going out and buying fresh flowers. It is one of my favorite things to do, and I love treating myself to a fresh bouquet from the store, but I didn't want to go out and buy anything new. I found these neutral-colored hydrangeas at home, and I thought they would look perfect over here and add a little bit of a smile.

I love making everything look nice and clean and one of the ways that I do that is by purchasing pretty bottles to add my hand soap to. I am refilling both of these.

I have a pretty glass apothecary jar over here and I decided it would look nice to fill it up with my dishwasher tabs. It is a neat way to add a little bit of fun to your kitchen.

Now finally, I'm adding my espresso machine, and I didn't rearrange anything too much over here on this side.

I am going to add Rocco's jar of treats and a couple of other little things and the countertops will be complete.

I have this planter sitting here and during Christmas time, I had a pencil tree in it. When I took the tree out, I thought I would add some florals or something else spring-inspired but when I was going through my bins, I saw this fern. I figured it would add some freshness in the corner, so I added it to my urn.

Now I'm going to wipe down my table and add a little bit more of that green to kind of match with the fern that I have going on.
