How about a little reminder of how this kitchen looked before Jason of Klaske Construction worked his magic.
Don’t you just love the fruit border on the soffit?
I did about 15 years ago.
And the blue backsplash?
That was wallpaper that I put up to hide the ugly green speckled yuck that matched the counter tops.
And that mirror.
Who wouldn’t want to look at oneself while they did the dishes?
Bead board went up as backsplash.
Nothing says farmhouse like bead board.
And Jason built a shelf area where the lovely mirror was.
I figure if my family misses checking themselves out while they wash dishes I can put a cute vintage one on the shelf.
The countertops are oak from Ikea.
Gorgeous, beautiful, amazing butcher block.
Another nod to old farmhouses.
Incase you need a closer look.
The piece that I built the kitchen around.
Well, that Jason built the kitchen around.
You knew what I meant.
A single basin farmhouse sink that came out of Dusty’s attic.
I’m sure I will make it up to them.
It is my favorite part of the whole kitchen.
How about another corner.
I knew I wanted to do something with that area to the right of the stove.
It was very cramped.
I really had to squeeze to fit things in the cabinets.
Jason had vision and created my second favorite part of the kitchen.
The little baker’s nook.
Now most of you know, I am not a baker…but I am thinking this little corner may just influence me to dig deep and find my inner Betty Crocker.
Jason cut back the countertop so I have more room.
It’s the perfect spot for all the items I may use every day.
You noticed I said “may”.
Jason envisioned a shelf above the fridge to fill in the huge empty space.
The perfect spot for some vintage farmhouse treasures.
Thanks for dropping by again.
I am trying to weed through all the photos and break them up so I don’t give you the longest blog post in history.
