French Country Cottage Kitchen

We love our 1940's vintage kitchen as it is now- but not so much how it was when it started out. We kept the original cupboards and character while updating it~ the ceiling fan became 2 vintage chandeliers, doors came off a couple of cupboard for open shelving,we added beadboard and beams to the ceiling, etc~ Did I mention that this kitchen was remodeled on a big time budget? Yep, it was.

Lots of befores and afters in my post at my blog :

    This is so pretty! This is similar to our kitchen at our home in the country and I'm in the process of getting ideas for there; can you tell me what kind of counter tops you used?

    This is beautiful. I love the way the swag chains join the chandeliers without adding more big holes to the ceiling.
