Something New in the Kitchen!

Hi All,
We woke up to cool temps this morning, in Illinois.  I love it!  I have had my carpenters here for over a week, doing this and that.  There is always something to maintain in an older home.  I think that is part of the fun of keep a home authentic, tho.
You all know how I love my olden Flair, but I have had that for a few years now...

My wooden cabinets are all original.  How I love the idea of that!  My carpenter added the tile counter top several years back...

Here is the new part!  We added bead board all around the kitchen and painted it white.  I had it behind the stove, but had it added around the rest of the kitchen.

My coffee station...

I love how it looks next to Granny's Hoosier.  I am going to paint it a soft yellow with milk paint, soon!

Looking in from the den.  I am going to soften up the wall behind the stove, as well with a softer yellow...
Love how it all turned out!

  11. I love your little kitchen. It's quirky shape and old-fashioned appliances (along with Grannie's Hoosier!) make it so special. So many times I see people gut the serviceable kitchens they have to make great, as in palatial, big rooms devoid of coziness and character. (Who needs that much??!) Hurrah for your little "oddity". May I find a home with something as quaint as your kitchen! This is my first time here, so I will have to look around some more real soon.

  12. I always love seeing your kitchen and I love the addition of the beadboard. I wish I could have a carpenter come in and do some things around here. You are right....there is always something with these older homes...but I find joy in it. We are caring for an antique.

  13. Oh...and of course I adore your original cabinets. I so wish my little cottage still had it's original ones. The houses in my neighborhood that still have their's I am so jealous of. And I get soooo upset when people tear them out and put in modern ones. So wish I had had an original one to care for instead of destroy.
