French Country Kitchen Tour


Welcome to our French Country Kitchen tour. After living here for right at 9 years, this room is still my favorite! I really wouldn't change anything. The perimeter cabinets are pine and the center island is a painted distressed green. There are also 2 types of granite used. To read more on our kitchen, please visit my blog.
