Victorian Farmhouse Kitchen Restoration
Our home was built in1900. It has been cut in half, moved 25 miles to the country, put back together again and we have been restoring it now for 10 years. We have our blood, sweat, tears and MONEY invested here, and it has truly been a labor of love!
We completely gutted, replaced the windows and door. Added new cabinets, appliances, backsplash and countertops.
This is the Tin Ceiling my husband installed.
I hand stained the original floors
We added an apron style farm sink and we used an old dining table as an island. I custom designed the cabinets to hold our microwave oven!
I found this stained glass piece at an antique shop and installed it in place of the clear glass for the transome over the door! The beadboard is new. I found the recipe book cabinet at Big Lots!
I found this bakers shelf at a thrift store and it fit perfectly also hung this wire shelving on the inside of the door!
The lower cabinet was custom designed at a more shallow depth to fit the door trim.
I installed this faux tin backsplash! The backsplash mimics the tin ceiling and ties the room together.
I found this piece at a local antique shop and refinished it with crackle paint and installed lights insde the top and at the bottom.
