Before I go to town on the kitchen, I thought I’d share the corner that’s getting a little work done. Keep in mind, this is a kitchen housed in an 1875 farmhouse. I have no idea what the original kitchen looked like, but I know for a fact in didn’t have these stock cabinets. (I posted the other part of my kitchen in an earlier post here.)
The cabinets are currently painted with Martha Stewart paint in Tortilla.
The beadboard is Ultra White, and I can’t remember the color of the walls.
My brother-in-law says the floors are Mexican tile but I’m not sure about that.
I’ve always loved the trio of windows above the kitchen sink.
These lace curtains are gonna go, I may leave the windows bare or use muslin instead.
The little shelf inside the back door is getting swapped out.
Haven’t figured out yet what will replace it but I’ve got my eyes open.
A bit of freesia and baby’s breath to brighten up a rainy, gloomy day.
The kitchen island isn’t huge but it holds all my baking supplies just fine.
It was a housewarming gift from my parents shortly after moving in.
It’ll be getting a slight makeover since I could use a larger work surface.
Or who knows, I may just replace it with something completely different.
On occasion we eat at the kitchen island and sit on the stools that I refinished months ago.
This morning I sat here with coffee and a banana nut muffin while looking at Country Home magazine.
After Thanksgiving is over, it’ll be time to say goodbye to all the gourds.
I haven’t been able to bring myself to haul out the Christmas goodies yet.
Found these festive bosch pears at the grocery store.
Pears always remind me of the holidays, although I’m not sure why.
I’m hoping to replace the laminate countertop with some type of wood.
Luckily not much is needed since most of the kitchen consists of free standing pieces.
The microwave sits on an old bead board cabinet but I don’t have a good picture of it.
Hopefully the kitchen will be done by January or February.
How about you? Do you have any plans for your kitchen coming up soon?
