~My Country Farmhouse Kitchen…~

Hi everyone….come on in out of this winter weather (it’s cold and snowy here) and I’ll show you around my new farmhouse style kitchen.

As we enter the room…to the right is the fridge and the stove. These are my older appliances and we will be replacing them soon to stainless steel like the micro-wave.


This is the gathering that is on top of the refrigerator.


And tucked into the corner by the fridge and the stove is a basket the holds my grandma’s recipe cards…a thrift store crock that holds some spoons & spatulas…and a cookie jar from Target.


Now we are moving down to the other side of the stove.


In this area is my Ikea cutting board…a rolling pin holder…and an enamel bowl with treats in it for my grandkids…and for me too!


Next to the cutting board is old wood bread-boards…my red canisters…an old blue mason jar with antique cookie-cutters…my mixer…and a display dish that I made to put faux muffins & pastries on.


Now…we are to my favorite focal piece in the kitchen…my stainless-steel farmhouse sink. It is the first thing that you see when you enter the kitchen. I do have a valance to put up at the window, but they were a little too long…so I need to re-hem them before I put them up.


Here is a close up of the new vintage style light above the sink and also the farmhouse style facet that we put in.


Let’s move on to the right side of the sink to where the dishwasher and the pantry are…and my farmhouse towel that I made just for my new kitchen.


In this corner is the toaster…an old hand mixer…and an old coffee pot that my sister gave me for my new kitchen. I love how she wrapped some berries around it.


Above the dishwasher is an old handmade basket with some of my blue mason jar collection…a large old butter churn…an egg basket…and a rooster lamp.


Now let’s go to the wall opposite of the kitchen sink where the buffet area is…this wall backs up to the living room and dining room. These are the walls that the shelves will be going up on. They will hold my white pitcher collection…old baskets…and old kitchen gadgets.


Here is another look at the vintage light that is in this area.


And another look at the buffet area. I have more of my blue mason jar collection in this area…some white pitchers…old kitchen gadgets…old wood mashers…the PB mason jar water jug…and of course, those awesome little mason jar lights!


I have one more photo to show you…

Our dining room is open to the kitchen…so we decided to get a new light for in there too. Okay…I just have to tell you that I love this light!! You can actually replace the glass with old wide-mouth mason jars…guess what I’m on the hunt for?!!!


Our next project is to get the wallpaper border replace in the dining room and living room. I’ve found some that looks like weathered wood at a local country shop and it is going on sale this month…so I’m counting the days until I can get it. We also want to get the carpet up in the living room…just look at the pretty wood floors that we found under the carpet in the dining room.

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my new kitchen. I’ll share my white pitcher collection with you once we get the shelves up. Until next time…….         farmhouse hugs, Cindy
