FRENCH COTTAGE KITCHEN

Yes... it's true...
I am always changing things around here.
Do you have that same problem?
It seems like things are finished and you are done...
then you are not so happy with it...
and it's time for a little update again.

A couple weeks ago I shared a photo of the kitchen in a post
and several of you asked to see more

I haven't shared the kitchen or where it started out in awhile
and I am not completely finished with what I am working on in here yet...
(nothing major- just a few changes)
so these photos are from a few weeks ago...
kind of a kitchen at Christmas post-
but in January!
lol!

As most of you know- our house is a vintage 1940 cottage.
The first thing I loved when I walked in to this house were these
beautiful original stately cupboards.
I loved how the reached all the way up to the ceiling
and the old original character and charm of them.

We added the black island
This is a new piece purchased a few years back and
all I needed to do was change the knobs to glass
to give it that old antique find feel.

Just a few pictures today...I know... such a tease! ;)
I'll share again soon with the
before-before
(be prepared...lol!)
&
the after when some of the mini- makeover changes are wrapped up.
I'll also share how we remodeled our cottage kitchen ourselves
on a BIG time budget.

Happy Wednesday!!
See you tomorrow for Feathered Nest Friday!!

  17. Beautiful Courtney! Not surprised one bit that it's as lovely as it is, since it belongs to you. :) Can I ask, did you add the beadboard ceilings yourself or were they already there? I just love them!
