My friend "Miss M.", and her hubby "J" created an awesome country cottage kitchen a couple of years ago. Painted beadboard, open shelving. Delightful. "J" is pretty handy, and made SUPER FANTASTIC maple butcher-block countertops!
They are always working on one project or another. Imagine my suprise when they told me they were re-doing their kitchen......again! I know! I know! There is nothing wrong with it! Yikes! This time they splurged for beautiful new shaker cupboards, and created a new island, as well as removing a wall in between the kitchen and diningroom/livingroom. The beadboard stayed, but where are those maple counters???? I wonder if they will curb them?...I think I should keep an eye out for them.
Here is the new NEW kitchen:
and: THE ISLAND!
Includes: Barnboard, a tree for the footrest,
and look at that chunk of wood for the bartop!
Lets not forget, NO farmhouse country kitchen is complete without the farmhouse table & chairs:
"J" made the table top too!
