~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 joining “The Old Time Party” over at “The Old Time Farmhouse” blog….


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

    I haven’t visited in a while and I’m so glad I stopped by today! What a lovely kitchen you have. It certainly looks like it was worth all the work and the wait of getting it done. Love the pops of red you have here and there. Praying this year will be better for us and we can work on some of the projects that got put off last year. Going to make a few upgrades in my kitchen as well.
    Wishing you a wonderful 2013!

    I still can’t get over what beautiful grain the hickory wood has…similar to cedar. I love the light fixtures you’ve found…especially the dining room light and the one over the sink. You new farmhouse sink is incredible…but you know that! And what great accessories. i need your help in putting things above my cabinets. I just never know what looks best. I know you are thrilled with your new kitchen! What an accomplishment!

    Your new kitchen looks great! I love your new sink too. I wish my sink was large like that. Stainless steel is so practical too. I have a white sink and it shows every scratch and stain. Bad choice! Your cabinets add a wonderful warmth too. Love the vintage style light fixtures. Lighting is so important to a room’s overall design.

  • Roxie

    Evening Cindy! You have a beautiful kitchen! So many things are stand-outs! The stainless is beautiful with your cabinetry! I love the backsplash tin, and your lighting too! The one over your table is like JUNK CHIC COTTAGE (I think) but she painted hers after a few days…Everything looks beautiful together…oh, and that SINK is to die for…I would enjoy washing dishes in that! Have a blessed and wonderful weekend! Roxie

  • Christina

    I love your kitchen and those cabinets are simply gorgeous! I would like to know where you purchased the light over the sink? I love that you are going to add Mason jars to the dinning fixture. Don’t ever paint those cabinets! Take care.

  • Dru (The Farmer's Daughter)

    Cindy! I Love what you’ve done in your kitchen! That sink is perfect and the tin back splash is perfect with it. I can certainly see how much work and planning you put into it all. Love the light fixtures–I want to know where you got those over your dining room table? They would be perfect in my farmhouse! I’ve never seen any like them.
    So sorry I’m late getting over here. Was gone yesterday and this morning the party wasn’t up! But, I didn’t forget you and love what you’ve done. Hey, we may be doing our living rooms at the same time!
    Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy that kitchen!
    Farmhouse Blessings,

    Wow, Cindy. Love it. Especially love the wood tone on the cabinets, the sink, and the light over the table!

  • Ann Drake

    Everything is stunning but the sink is definitely the star! I would be hanging out in that kitchen all the time…

  • Cheryl

    The new kitchen is great and love that farmhouse sink and new lights.
    All of your personal touches are perfect! You and hubby sure did a wonderful job.

  • Jana Ziegler

    Please forgive me if the answer is in your pictorial tour — I didn’t happen to see if you said where your hickory cabinets are from…??? I am very interested to know, as THIS is FINALLY supposed to be the year for use to remodel our 34-year-old-oh-so-70’s kitchen!!!! Presently, we are looking at the lower-scale hickory cabinets at Lowes. Love the look of them….seems like they leave a little to be desired on construction and options. …..

  • bettycrowe

    You have got to be absolutely thrilled with this. It is amazing you found just what you needed. Lighting, etc. Enjoy! I would.

  • Teresa
