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 :

Vintage chandeliers, vintage french ticking drapes and a new but vintage inspired island.
The kitchen is long and has 2 very small windows originally. They were replaced with larger ones to allow more light to come in.
A cupboard door was taken off for open shelving on each end of the upper cupboard and 4 drawers became baskets on one side of the sink and 4 drawers became an area for a dishwasher on the other side of the sink.
