COTTAGE KITCHEN CREATED WITH SALVAGED PIECES

Isn't this a sweet kitchen?
I love the soft colors and how light and airy it is.
But more than that, they have used some great 
salvaged finds which add loads of character to this kitchen.


I found this kitchen at This Old House.
The insets in the following pictures were to show
similar items that could be used in place of the salvaged treasures.


Gorgeous, gorgeous chandelier!


The old brackets used for the shelf are amazing!


These stools are a similar style to the one I just ordered for my kitchen.
Of course, the chippy goodness isn't so easily replicated.
See how the two stools in the picture aren't even exactly alike - they don't even have to match!


I think most of us would adore this sink.


I really like the idea of using free standing furniture for some of the storage
 in the kitchen.
Especially if it looks as great as either one of these in the picture.

Do you like this kitchen?
What do you like or dislike the most?

HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND EVERYONE!!

  2. Interesting post. I do like the charm and warmth of the kitchen but it may be a little too blonde for me. I am amazed at how kitchens have changed. No more upper cabinets and I wonder where they store their stuff, but maybe they are all minimalists anyway. I love the drawers in the island. In our old house we had an island like that I had shelves built in the end. It was butcher block top -- how I loved it!

  3. I love the kitchen, JoAnne, and all the elements they have pulled into it. Looks like tile countertops so I bet this was done sometime in the 80's or 90's. Great light fixture and I love the shelves. xo Diana
