My Kitchen






















I thought I would post some photos of my kitchen, as it occurred to me the other day that I have never actually shown it in its entirety.








































It's a freestanding kitchen that I gradually replaced with sections of old pine dressers, this piece is actually the top part of a dresser, I added some feet to make it a standing piece.





I saw some cups like these in a book by Atlanta Bartlett.  These cups were green so I spray painted them white and painted on the number with Acrylic paint.  Obviously I can't use them but there nice to look at.






I intend to replace the worktop here, as soon as I see something I like, maybe wood. 

There was a gap next to the cooker so a made some little shelves for storage jars, these are Kilner Jars.













































Then the other side of the kitchen is my chalkboard wall.  It took a while to find a little cabinet that fitted against this wall, this is a Victorian pot cupboard, probably not really appropriate in a kitchen but it has been thoroughly disinfected and it does a good job of housing all my pegs and laundry items.

Then there is the wall dresser that stores the dry food.








































and then to my large white dresser where I store just about everything.

  5. You and your kitchen are ah-mazing.

    Each and every piece is a thing of beauty.

    How can you keep such a white kitchen so clean?

    I don't think I could cook in there. I'd just swann around.

  26. Oh my goodness, I love it!! This may seem silly, but my favorite part is the little space next to the stove where you build shelves! I have a skinny space like that with nothing in it... I think I'll have to borrow this idea!! :)

  33. Thanks so much for your support Deborah and good luck. I think your idea of styling the number in a vignette is smashing.

  34. Your kitchen is spectacular! I love the whiteness of it all with a touch of colour; thank you so much for sharing those inspiring photographs with us.

  35. I love the table!
    I also love the little hanging fabric bit under the bench. I have never actually seen a kitchen with one of those in it and it just reminds me so much of 101 dalmations. As a kid I saw this movie and peridita had all her puppies there. This is what I equate it to. haha. It's immediately associated with that scene in my mind so it's extra cute!

  39. I agree with some of the girls above... your kitchen belongs in a magazine and I know just the one...whilst in Denmark this weekend I bought a Jeanne d' Arc mag...(unfortunately it's in Danish)..but your kitchen would fit in beautifully to the lovely light Scandinavian look...just gorgeous Deb! I especially love the freestanding adapted dresser top which you have tiled and placed next to the cooker! Robx

  48. Oh this is absolutely DIVINE! I adore your scrubbed pine table, the colour of the antique wood looks so gorgeous against the white paint. I also absolutely love your cupboard with the curtain (I have a thing about cupboard curtains)!!! Your styling is so pretty too, but then I expect nothing less having seen the rest of your gorgeous blog! Hugs from a farmhouse in Lincolnshire - Glenda xxxxx

  49. I love your freestanding kitchen! I would love to do that, but alas, I have a tiny 8 ft. by 8 ft. kitchen, so we will have to use conventional cabinetry. Such a shame because I see SO many used vintage kitchen cabinets for sale on our local craigslist (Minneapolis). Yesterday, I saw a wonderful vintage pine corner unit with glass uppers and they were giving it away (as well as other pine kitchen cabinets) if someone would just dismantle and haul away. So sad for me! Your cottage is charming! I have just discovered it through Miss Mustard Seed.

  61. Your kitchen looks so simple, yet fascinating! The vintage details are striking, especially the design of the wall clock area! That helps you monitor the time while cooking food, right? That's a great view!
