COTTAGE KITCHEN UPDATE

                                       Hi friends!  Is everyone staying warm?
Since it's soooo cold outside......I've been busy inside.  The kitchen is basically finished except a little trim around the baseboard.  I am looking to add a few vintage glass cake stands to my collection and it's always fun to change/add to the decor for the seasons.
I am very pleased how this tiny kitchen turned out (8x9) and my Ken did a wonderful job!  I am happy with the selections we made..as in the farmhouse sink, Martha Stewart cabinets and hardware, the IKEA butcher block, and the shelving I put together myself from Home Depot.  Note:  Martha's shelving/brackets were $1,200..no way!   This shelving and brackets cost around $200 (tax included)
I really like the vintage/retro style GE stove and the fridge fit perfect.



I am using a vintage lace tablecloth for the skirt sink but I will be looking for something else soon...
The lavender in the pitcher is from my garden at the farmhouse.....it still smells wonderful~~~





                                I love my sweet antique toaster light~~~



I do have a blank wall on this side next to the fridge.........I'm looking for that "something special" to go there



                                   Have a wonderful and Blessed weekend~~~Roxie

  2. Your kitchen is so charming, Roxie. It's clean and simple and very nice. Wouldn't that be nice to have a farmhouse sink, it's so big! And I noticed your lovely hutch in the next room. Your husband did a wonderful job on everything.

    It's been pretty cold here too, but no snow. Have a peaceful weekend, Roxie.

    love, ~Sheri

  6. Your kitchen may be small, but it's filled with vintage charm, Roxie!!! I love every single choice you made. I've never seen the retro stoves for sale and if I were in the market for one now, I'd choose one like yours. I love your farmhouse sink and toaster light and I know you'll fill that blank space with something wonderful! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

  9. Hi Roxie, I love your little kitchen. You are a genius in knowing how to pull all of that together in such a small area "8X9" I never would have guess that. Your sink is amazing and I love the butcher block counter tops. Oh, and the little hanging light fixture . . . Is that an old toaster? Oh, I know that it is and it is so charming.
    Great space! Thanks for stopping by my blog and helping me celebrate my three years of blogging :)

  12. I love your kitchen and that farmhouse sink is awesome!! I debated on a white farmhouse sink or the stainless steel farmhouse sink...and went with the stainless. I have the same kitchen hardware on my cabinets that you do...but mine are bronze. Just love your open shelves and your lights are the perfect touch in there.
    hugs,

  22. Roxy, it's adorable! The work was so worth it. I love all the white and the GE stove you chose. It looks vintage. The cost of the brackets and the shelves is one of the same reason we made our own shelving. It really doesn't take into account that a small kitchen needs shorter boards. They come in certain sizes and that's it, so if you buy them, they cut them. That would be a loss.
