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 :

    I didn't know the look I loved so much was mostly French Country....with other beautiful things thrown in....beautiful to me. Whatever happened to Christopher Lowell, Kitty Bartholemew etc. on HGTV? A lot of what's 'in' now is scaled down, plain without
