Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel – A Room with a View

I didn’t plan to show you my farmhouse kitchen remodel until
Friday, because I had a lot of photos to go through before
posting about it, but my mom is going on a camping trip
today and she wasn’t too happy when she found out she
wouldn’t get to see my kitchen until she got home late Sunday night.
I stayed up until the wee hours this morning
finishing this post for you, Mom –
I hope you like it and have fun camping!I think the hardest part about this kitchen remodel
was getting the whole room clean at the same time so
I could take photos of it.  Every time I turned around
there were more dishes by the sink, or someone’s junk was
stacked on the kitchen table, or the floor needed sweeping again.
But I got up early before anyone could make a new mess, and got the photos taken!

Welcome to my kitchen!  Come on in and sit down.
My daughter even baked some fresh German chocolate cupcakes for you.

Repurposed Rusty Bolt Candle Holder -

This kitchen was fairly outdated.
It had a very small window above the kitchen sink that wasn’t
doing justice to the lovely view of the pasture and forest beyond it, so
our goal was to open up the view and let as much natural light as possible come in.
My husband installed a new, large window over the sink and added
another one right next to it on the adjacent wall.

We also installed an antique window from a historic courthouse
between the kitchen and the living room to open up the view
between the two rooms and allow some of the light from the kitchen
into the living room as well, which has only one window.

For those of you who are “skip the details and give me the big picture” kind of people –
you just got it.  You’ve seen the overall kitchen.
For those of you who are into every little detail…
you’re in for it!
I’ll take you around the room, from top to bottom, starting at the sink.

Remember the door that I’ve created a bunch of coat racks out of?
Well, the side piece that had the hinges became the shelf over the kitchen sink.
I made something out of every single piece of that door.

Farmhouse Kitchen Window Display with Salvaged Door -

Lots of old pots, a bulb planter, a flower mister and some gravy boats adorn it.

In between the two windows hang some old metal fryer baskets.
Repurposed Vintage Wire Baskets as Wall Fruit Baskets in Farmhouse Kitchen -

Not many moms tell their kids not to eat fruit,
but I had to guard this fruit from my kids until
I could take photos.  It was killing them not to eat the clementines.

Lots of canning jars sit in the smaller new window.

I love the way the sunlight filters through the glass.
Find tons of Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel Ideas -
And my old farmhouse sink…I love it.
Farmhouse Sink White Kitchen -
I cut up an old canvas bag to make the curtain under the sink.
The wood piece on the front is salvage from an
antique side table.
Farmhouse Kitchen Sink Feed Sack Curtains -
Next to the window are a few shelves and my “old lady”
microwave stand I showed you a few weeks ago.
Farmhouse Kitchen Repurposed Vintage Open Shelves Antique Side Table -

My old eyeglasses display hangs above our drinking glasses.

Farmhouse Kitchen Open Shelves Antique Eyeglasses Spectacles Ball Jars -

An assortment of old cups hangs under the bottom shelf.
Vintage tea cups -
At the bottom of the microwave stand sits my market basket
filled with blue Ball canning jars and jar lifters.
Farmhouse Kitchen Open Shelves with Wire Basket of Ball Jars -
The only window treatments the two smaller windows
got were some antique handles off of 2 push lawn mowers.
I bought the mowers for $6 each at an auction and sold the wheels,
so the handles were free for me.

I love the typography on both of these.

A little further down the wall is another shelf to display
some old treasures on.
Farmhouse kitchen home decor
In the center of the kitchen sits my new table
made from our old cellar door and under the table is
the wonderful wood plank floor we discovered after tearing
out 4 layers of linoleum.  You’ll notice there are only a few
chairs and a stool around the table.  I’m still painting the
remaining chairs, so I’ll show you all of them later.
Farmhouse white kitchen table
I think my son’s Min Pin has claimed the stool as his own though.

Hanging over the table is an old milk can strainer lid
that my husband converted into a light.
repurposed milk can lid Farmhouse light

The corner by the entryway has my old cookstove
and the ironstone display I made from another part of the door.
Underneath is another display of tarnished spoons.
Half of an old wooden screen door makes a mock window
above the stove, with some curtains made
from flour sack towels.

Farmhouse Kitchen Antique Cook Stove Tarnished Silverware Ironstone

To the right of the ironstone display is the doorway from
the entryway into the kitchen.  We have another milk
can light in the entryway and I placed a little ruler
over the doorway with the Golden Rule on it.
Believe it or not, these rulers were made by the Coca-Cola
company.  You rarely see advertising like that anymore.

On the other side of the doorway is the wall between the kitchen
and living room I showed you a few weeks ago.
repurposed books
Turning the corner is my counter with the window
that came from a demolished, historic courthouse.
Everywhere you see the “tin” ceiling tiles (they are really
flexible plastic!), is where cabinets previously had hung.
We needed a way to hide the damage left from taking them
down, so my husband came up with using the faux tin tiles.
He’s one smart cookie!

Farmhouse kitchen plank wood floors

He reused some of the glass cabinet doors to make an
illuminated cabinet over the refrigerator where I keep my favorite white
serving dishes.  The backside of the cabinet faces the living room
and also has glass doors, so it’s visible from both sides,
with a different vignette showing on the other side.

Farmhouse kitchen cabinet

On the other side of the refrigerator is a little alcove for the stove.
Since I have very limited cabinet space, everything
becomes wall art in my kitchen, like all my
cast iron skillets.  Food staples look pretty in glass jars,
so they become decor also.

Farmhouse kitchen spice rack

Farmhouse Kitchen open shelves

All the shelves in the kitchen were made from the top
of an antique table.  My husband just cut the pieces to size.
All the brackets were purchased 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby.

  35. My first visit to your blog and I am gob smacked!!! What a wonderful farm kitchen! Finally a picture that I could show my husband. He doesn’t “get” decorating at all but I think he now understands the journey I am on to restore my own farmhouse to it’s “roots” (c 1865).

  41. What a fun kitchen. I always love to see what you are doing and getting a glimpse of my home area. Nancy Carr, Vieques, Puerto Rico

  42. Angie!!!

    All I can say is SPECTACULAR!!!!!


  43. Hi Angie,

    God is truely great. HE allows talented people like you to show the rest of the world that one does not need ‘pots of gold’ to create miracles. Just love, hard work, passion and HIS inspiration. You and your hubby created a miracle kitchen with all the right ingredients.

    Those clementines look YUM. Your kids are saints to have left it alone!


  44. This is wonderful. I love country kitchens and yours is one of the most fun I’ve ever seen. What a pleasure it must be to wake each morning and enjoy it! I can’t believe that you transformed that drab, ordinary kitchen into something this great! And love the Coke yard stick plus a ton of other little touches you added. Gail (

  45. Angie, you don’t disappoint. Your kitchen remodel is amazing and between your talented husband and you, it proves that two heads are better than one! You certainly compliment each others skills. I adore this space and you should win tons of raves and rewards for not only the craftsmanship and creativity, but the idea that a kitchen (the most expensive room in the house to remodel), and do it on a dime! I am on my knees to you both!

  46. You and your hubby did an awesome job! Farmhouse cozy on a budget! LOVE the way your kitchen redo came out! Thanks for taking us along on the journey!

  47. Angie, this redo proves you don’t just talk the talk you walk the walk! You reuse, repurpose and mingle them both together for DIY and decorating. Pat yourself on the back and let the kids eat the fruit!


  48. I so love the farm kitchen table – I hope to someday have one in my dining room!

    Popped in from Stuff and Nonsense’s Fridays Unfolded.

  49. Susan in Mississippi says

    I accidentally found your blog, but I am so glad that I did. I am totally in love with your kitchen! It is just wonderful. I am your newest follower now ;o)

  50. What a completely different feeling this has from your original kitchen. It’s amazing. I especially love the potato bin turned garbage bing. I bet no other kitchen has that!

  51. The trip round the kitchen made it seem as though one was going round in circles! Lost in wonder at how you’ve made use of so much and yet the finished item is so lovely and light! Enjoy using it and may the meals produced be wondrous to behold (and consume!) Just dropping by as a fellow guest at Pam’s latest linky party!

  52. I love your kitchen! It inspires me to do more to mine!

  53. OMG I don’t know even where to start to compliment you on your amazing farmhouse kitchen. It is all so unique and beautiful. Love it all. I really love the old courthouse window divider. I have been having an affair of late with old windows and doors in my home. I love the character they bring to a space. Oh the history that window could tell!!!!! Great job so well done. Please visit my blog sometime. I recently did a farmhouse kitchen too. Love you style.

  54. just lovely…the details are so fun to take in! great work…love the old wire basket for you towels 🙂 pinned it ♥ much love

  55. Wow, I am visiting from Brenda’s blog. I am impressed at the skill and creativity level. Unreal. And kicking myself hard for all the old stuff I threw out from my mom’s house that I saw as useless old junk. xo

  56. Lovely kitchen redo! So creative! If I had that old kitchen I would have been tempted to burn it…ha!

  57. Found you from Brenda’s blog, Cozy Little House. I’m sooooo impressed with your kitchen reno! It has so much country charm and is white and bright and lovely. You’re so creative with the way you repurposed so many things. I don’t know where to start with trying to name a favorite. I think the first thing I noticed and loved was the mix of chair styles at your table all painted in chippy white paint. Love that! I love your old hardwood floors too. That had to be a difficult job to remove the old floor, but well worth it with the prize underneath. And the lawn mower handles you hung? Who would’ve EVER thought of that?! Again, so creative! Thanks for sharing your budget minded kitchen reno that turned out so charming.

  58. I also found you via Brenda’s blog, Cozy Little House. You took a builder’s standard kitchen and made it into your own adorable kitchen! I like that it is your style using mostly what you already had. The wood floors are beautiful and it was so clever of your husband to use ceiling tins to cover where the previous upper cabinets were. I’m looking forward to seeing your new pantry too. Thank you for sharing with us.

  59. Beautiful, fun, creative, and full of light!

  60. Beautiful, my gosh the before and after says it all.

    Enjoy, its a kitchen full old charm.

  61. I’ve come over from Cozy Little House and am in awe of your creativity! You’re such an inspiration!

  62. Oh my, I LOVE YOUR KITCHEN! I just got done showing him your post and telling him this is my dream kitchen! 🙂

    You are very talented, as well as your husband. Thank you to you for sharing and tell your husband thank you from me as well for his wonderful talent!


  63. Fantastic! You did a brilliant job. Congratulations

  64. Came over from Brenda’s Cozy Little House…sure do love all you and your husband have done…so charming and creative!! I took notes so I could use some of your ideas in my own place…loved all the little nooks and crannies for storing your treasures…faux tin ceiling…window room divider…wire basket storage…old stove coffee bar…recycled door pieces over window…old metal fryer baskets for fruit storage plus the pricing signs…Sigh….sooooooo sweet to look at!!! Love it…love it…love it!! Question: Does your husband have a single brother that is handy like him???? Just asking… 😉

    I will be back to be inspired again another day!!
    Thanks, Vicki

  65. wow! I came here from Brenda’s also. Love all that you did here! You’ve taken REUSE to great heights! My youngest son took his old kitchen down to the rafters; I am so proud of what he did there. He used a vinyl coated ceiling tile that looks like the tin tiles. Much easier to install and lightweight. We used the regular tin tiles as a backsplash for my gas stove. I wouldn’t do that ever again! We used the leftovers to fill where a wall was installed in my bathroom to conceal pipes to the shower/tub.

  66. Oh my Gosh ~ I came over from Cozy Little House. Brenda is right ~ what a wonderful transformation. I love, love, love your new old kitchen. Wow ~ you and your husband are so handy. I love the way you recycle everything you have and it looks fab-u-lous. I am your newest follower. I LOVE THIS 😉

  67. I adore your kitchen. Y’all are creative geniuses!

  68. It is fabulous! I cannot wait to see the rest of your blog. You really must submit this to Country Sampler Magazine.

  69. I love it Angie. You’ve done a brilliant job and with all the collectible bits and pieces, it has such character!

  70. You must be the cleverest woman on earth! I found you from Brenda’s blog this morning, and I will be your newest follower!

  71. The floor in your kitchen is to die for. Love the color of the old planks. What a treasure to find that under the old flooring.

  72. WOW what a kitchen. I love everything about it. You and your husband are so talented. And when you put the two side by side pictures towards the end of the before and after, one can REALLY see what an amazing transformation!
    PLUS I loved the surprise of the dog on the stool pic in there..I started laughing ; he’s so cute!

  73. Your creativity seems to be endless…very cool!

  74. Incredibly creative use of resources. I am amazed. Every detail is just adorable. I am your newest follower. I hope you’ll stop by Posed Perfection for a visit and maybe even a follow back. Have a great week!

  75. Beautiful…just beautiful. I felt like I was walking thru a museum. Going to have to share this with my hubby.

  76. I’m arriving a little bit late to the party, but I’m so glad I came by, anyway! Your kitchen remodel is stunning… and it is so “you”! Huge congratulations to you and your husband on such a remarkable job!


  77. It’s beautiful, Angie? Love all the details and I love all the vintage like how bright it is too…Christine

  78. Oh my gosh – it’s beautiful!

  79. It is so much brighter and has so much charm!! Fabulous job and on such a small budget too!! congrats to you and your husband for a great job!!

  80. Beautiful kitchen – all of your special finds make every inch of it so charming! Visiting from the Sunday Showcase…

    Rhonda @ home.made.

  81. This is unbelievable – what a magnificent job you did – you created an authentic farmhouse kitchen!
    BTW – your floors are beautiful!

  82. How did you get the glue off the floor? I have wood floors througout my house but they have had various treatments and all have much glue on them.
    Thank you

  83. Your farmhouse kitchen is so warm, rustic, and inviting. I love how you use the items that you have on display. Everything has its place and everything is used. The patina of the floors, cabinets, and all of your collections is gorgeous. I will be moving to a farm in two years, and I hope to have a fabulous farmhouse kitchen also. Thanks for sharing.

  84. So happy I stopped in…your kitchen is beautiful…full of inspiration!
    I’m about to move my son into his first dorm…where did the time go?

  85. It’s just stunning, love everything – all the open shelving and everything on display and love your floor.
    It’s just amazing, you must be so happy !

  86. Angie, it’s a beautiful kitchen! You guys did an amazing job. I’m so impressed. It’s definitely a reflection of you, I love it!

  87. Angie, Your kitchen is so charming! I LOVE all the vintage goodness in it.
    Mary Alice

  88. Love your kitchen re-do. It feels as if one is standing in the kitchen of an old farmhouse. I would have been concerned about getting rid of the cabinets for storage, but it looks like you dealt with that pretty effectively. One nice thing about having your food and pans displayed is that there wouldn’t be a lot of searching for things–they’re right in view! my favorites, though, are your abundance of light, the old floors, and the baskets with fruit and the old advertising signs on them–delightful!

  89. Love your kitchen, lots of great ideals. The whole room is so light and bright but still a very warm space.

  90. Hi Angie: I love all your vintage pieces and how you have used them. You really come up with clever ways to do things, I can’t think out of the box that well. I love your potato bin turned trash bin and the little cupboard above the frig, which is always such wasted space, with the lights for your china. It is all so bright and pretty. Thanks for sharing..Happy Monday..Judy

  91. I love, love your new/old kitchen! I know it was a lot of work, but it was well worth it.

  92. I adore it Angie…A true farmhouse kitchen!! Please come link it up to “Cowgirl Up!” tonight!

  93. What a wonderful transformation! I know exactly what you mean about the hardest part is getting it all clean for photos! But you did a great job. It’s lovely!

  94. Angie, your new kitchen is just gorgeous! Every detail is amazing! You did a fabulous job with this remodel!

  95. What a charming and welcoming kitchen! Beautiful transformation, Angie!

  96. Unfreaking gorgeous! I can’t say how much I love it since no words would describe. Very creative and so very pretty, and yes, so you! It is so much like standing in an old farmhouse. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

  97. Angie,
    It’s beautiful!!!! Love the floors that you discovered. Great idea to add the new windows…I really like a lot of light. All your vignettes are so charming, job well done. Thanks for sharing your new kitchen with us at my Nifty Thrifty Tuesday party.


  98. Oh, Angie, I can so see myself sitting at your kitchen table sipping coffee and just taking in the view. Something in every corner, every corner with something in it. Love, love, love your tour. It is indeed a room with a view. Thanks for the view. Many blessings at your new/old kitchen table surrounded by your family. Hugs and blessings, Jannifer

  99. Firstly, the things we won’t do for our moms, right? Secondly, thank you for indulging those of us who want all the details, and not just a quick sweep of the finished product.

  100. I love the floors. Since you didn’t mention putting those down, I assume that is what was under the beautiful linoleum in the kitchen?! Wink Wink! We have to pull up five layers of floor in the kitchen of our 1946 house and I am hoping that there is something lovely like those under there! The whole kitchen just reminds me of my grandma’s house and nothing is more comfortable and cozy than that!

    P.S. If you haven’t burned it already, I absolutely wouldn’t burn the linoleum, because depending on its age, it could be made of asbestos and that is worse than you can image to breathe near, let alone set on fire.


  101. amazing makeover! It’s hard to believe that’s the same kitchen. It looks so great. I have that ruler in my kitchen window!!!


  102. Completely charming and beautiful! I used to own SO many of the same type of items you’ve used in your kitchen. I got rid of so much of it because my husband didn’t like all the “stuff”. Now I’m single and kicking myself for not hanging onto more of the things I loved. Sigh…live and learn. You and your husband have done a fantastic job of creating beauty and personality on a small budget, just love it!

  103. I love everything and could spend hours just walking around and looking at every little detail. So much history in that room! I am also slightly drooling over that metal basket holding your dishclothes…WHEW! Love it!

    Hugs, Angie

  104. I LOVE your re-do…I love all the stories and explanations that went with each and every piece, thank you for that, seriously, it helps bring everything together, I actually felt like I was IN your kitchen and you were taking me around!! You mentioned you lived in MO, I do, I live in Ozark!! What part did you live in?
    God bless and happy New Kitchen and MUCH better than the before!
    Becky…oh, if you wanted to get a hold of me, my email is:

  105. Wow wow such a great redo!!!!! I’m so impressed

  106. I’m speechless! That is a wonderful makeover! It looks like it is right out of the 30’s or 40’s! What a cute vintage kitchen!!
    Came over from Common Ground!

  107. What a fabulous makeover! I featured your kitchen today at Potpourri Friday!

  108. Hi Angie,

    All your hard work deserves many high=fives and whoo hoo’s! The photographing alone was enough work to make me want to go take a nap. I have done enough “do it yourself” to know that doing it yourself isn’t as easy as it looks on HGTV. You rock, Sista! You and your husband did a wonderful job that shows caring and love and an intense amount of creativity. I hope you get to enjoy making many great memories in this kitchen and enjoying the fruits of your efforts. This kitchen is just lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  109. Your kitchen is awesome and has so much character. Love love all your collections and how you have them displayed. I’m sure your mom will love seeing the photos before she heads out and my guess is the kids have attacked the fruit already. I agree with others that I could spend hours in there just checking stuff out, but it looks so organized at the same time. Thanks for the detailed tour.

  110. what a great space!

    i absolutely love
    all the vintage pieces
    and charming details

    so full of light
    and character!

    thanks for sharing
    at Fridays Unfolded!

  112. You know I love your projects! This kitchen remodel is fabulous! Featuring you on Saturday! XO, Aimee

  113. I had the best time reading about your kitchen makeover! Every single thing you did is so creative and lovely.
    I love details and there is certainly no shortage of them in your gorgeous kitchen.

  114. Super re-do! I love your creativity using what you had on hand to create something entirely different.

  115. Angie, your farm kitchen is a dream. It’s REAL kitchen, not just fancy schmancy sit and look pretty kitchen. The utilitarian aspects of it are waht make it beautiful to me…everything has a home and a purpose. You made the ordinary look darling. I would love to see your table and chairs when complete!

  116. Your kitchen is awesome!! Thanks for the tour. It’s so lovely.

  117. Angie, I had pinned your kitchen before I even realized it was yours! I LOVE the bright, light, interesting space, the use of reclaimed items, those amazing floors, and all your great vignettes. I KNOW there was a lot of HARD work that went into this as well. AMAZING job. It may be my new favorite room in your house!

  118. WOW!!!! I absolutely love what you did with the kitchen! You have so many neat ideas for decorating! I love how you used all of your collections and great finds! Thank you for sharing this at Rustic Restorations Weekend!

  119. Your kitchen turned out beautifully, Angie…I remember when you started the project…I just love the light filled space you have created! Wonderful collections, too!

  120. My goodness, you have so much cool stuff! I absolutely LOVE your kitchen!

  129. amazing transformation! details, details details… my favorite ones were the fryer baskets for the fruit with the vintage signs on them and the potato pin turned garbabge can… love that!

  130. Love your kitchen! I love all the vintage details and especially that you reused and reclaimed. Beautiful!!

  131. Very beautiful homey kitchen! I could totally sit on one of those chippy chairs and sip coffee! Great job for little money! Traci

  135. Yes, congratulations on being featured at Miss Mustard Seed’s blog! Your kitchen is beautiful. It’s so welcoming that I’d love to sit and have a cup of coffee with you at that gorgeous table.

  136. Angie – It’s gorgeous! SO charming and vintage chic. I LOVE that it’s a real cook’s kitchen with so many things at the ready. That’s what I’m going for too. We really gotta work our little kitchens, don’t we?! (Well, yours is a pretty good size but I’m talkin’ countertop & cupboard space.) I have a collection of vintage cheese graters as well. If I don’t end up displaying them, I know who I’m gonna send them to! The before & after is awesome. Shows that there’s a clear difference between vintage and outdated! Please tell me it took you a year to create this loveliness because that’s where I’m at. 😉 Love.

  137. Adorable and Amazing!! Congrats!

  138. I can not believe your kitchen makeover! It is literally my dream come true! I am SLOWLY filling my kitchen with old things i love…it would be an accomplishment if it someday looked like yours!

  142. Angie you and your husband did a remarkable job! It’s just so dang charming. Can you believe that floor???? I bet you about died of happiness when you found that! I could be perfectly happy in that kitchen – at least with the pantry added on….just lovely.

  143. Wowzer, one of a kind spectacular….BRAVO

  144. Really fabulous redo. You’ve given me an idea or two for when I, hopefully, begin my kitchen re-do. Congrats on the feature at MMS.

  146. Just wonderful! I love reading about, and seeing, kitchen re-do’s on a budget.

  147. Where do I begin?! This is one fabulous, vintage filled delight! You must never leave this kitchen! Love those push mower handles, eyeglass display, wooden shelves … the list goes on and on! The best $1,000 every spent!

  158. As home owner I have a plan on kitchen remodeling and the main focus is to have new pantry doors which has divider at the back of it. It seems that kind of door really nice.

  159. your kitchen is SO wonderful, angie! how wonderful to find those floors! your creativity and collections make this room a vintage charm:) oh, love that trash holder and cute pup, too!

  160. Hi Angie

    I found your blog while looking for royalty free clips for my own vintage project- a stash box for my fabric, and stopped to look around after picking up some ideal pictures, thanks! I will try and (work out how to) send you a picture when it’s finished.

    Your kitchen is truly stunning, as is your laundry room (that’s as far as I got so far! Couldn’t continue without commenting!)It’s so bright and airy. I live in what I guess you’d call rural England and your kitchen wouldn’t look out of place in any village house or cottage here. People here in towns and cities pay many ten’s of thousands of pounds to try and achieve the same look and they are not half as lovely as yours, many are mass produced, brought from specialist ‘design’ chains and just look like over priced faux country kitchens! I’d rather have yours any day!

    My projects are small items. Jewellery, gifts, storage, personal and items to sell for charity. I find inspirations in objects big, small, old and new. I don’t have a blog- maybe one day. I can only do a little at a time due to illness so I’d rather craft than blog 😉 When I can’t craft I look online to fuel the fire for when I can! I can see me doing a lot of refuelling right here!

    With very best wishes and crafty hugs,

    Tracey 🙂

  161. What an amazing transformation. Can’t believe it’s the same kitchen. I am planning to pin so many photographs. Every bit is way beyond creative. Superb job:)

  162. What a beautiful kitchen! It brings a tear to my eye that the flooring has been covered up all these years. That was the first thing I saw, it is gorgeous. I really love the whole space. It is warm, cozy, inviting and very charming. Besides the floor, my other favorite items are the antique window between the rooms, the milk screen light and the cellar door table. Great job!! You can really tell a lot of time and love went into the room.

  163. This is really such a beautiful kitchen design. Great example how to keep the kitchen in a best manner. Could anyone guide me the best kitchen remodeler in los angeles. I am very glad to see that.

  164. Great information and beautiful blog.Thanks for sharing it.

  165. I keep putting off our kitchen remodeling in Tempe AZ. I need to get on that before my wife gets upset.

  166. Great looking kitchen! I’ve been browsing the internet for inspiration and ideas to start my own kitchen remodel. I already have my table picked out and I plan to go look at double oven range tomorrow. What is the most durable and cost-effective counter top material, in your opinion?

  167. Your kitchen is so beautiful! I love all of the details that you have incorporated especially the tin ceiling tiles. 😉

  168. Wow! What a gift you’ve been given in being able to display all your little goodies and collections in such a wonderful way! You are truly a “designer”! Everything is just to my tastes, and how I would love to have some of the things you have on display!
    My one question is on the wood flooring…. Would you tell us more about how you did it? It’s just lovely, and I’m thinking it’s probably some DIY project I’d like to imitate! Did you use wooden pegs to nail it down? A little tutorial would be so appreciated. I’m a 72 year old gr-grandma, but I do all my own work, still! I have done all my own floors in my house, and now want to change the kitchen floor. It’s the only one left with vinyl tile on it. Your floor looks exactly what I’m looking for…. care to share some tips on your labor?

  169. You’ve put the chic in country chic!

  170. You and your husband are an inspiration to me and mine. I’m also blessed with a wizard at being my personal handyman. I have received the gift of many ideas from your kitchen and some I’ve already done. We are very frugal and do things on a reuse, renew, renovate kind of budget. Thank you for opening your kitchen to us all. Bless you!

  171. One might as well pick a kitchen planner who is parcel to offer one broad record determinations for the kitchen remodeling beginning from bureau, embellishments, and machines up to beautifying fittings. The decorators must illuminate one about the styles incorporating conventional, up to date or contemporary and present day styles.

  172. I can tell that everything in the kitchen is in the right place and I am loving it then.

  173. Wow! That is amazing! What a great use of the space. I love all the little details! 🙂

  174. I saw this on hometalk while searching “farmhouse kitchens” – just love it – all the little details. So sweet. I sent the link to my sister-in-law for her consideration while planning a kitchen remodel. Thanks for sharing. NancyLee

  175. God bless people like you. Praying that through this post, you will inspire more people.

    I love your kitchen remodel…I am going to build a barn next year and plan to put a small apartment in the back for my husband and myself. My son and family live in the house on our 11 acres. I totally love your kitchen. I had planned to use my hoostier, and several other wooden cabinets in my kitchen in place of the standard cupboards. After seeing what you have done in your kitchen I am very excited. I have the exact stove as yours. I use it to store pots and pans in the oven, plastic containers in the cupboard area on top and in the middle I keep my microwave. I am so jazzed by all the great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

    I love this kitchen and thank you for the details. I especially like, really like, the low cost of the remodel. Money for anything to do with decorating for me is pretty much nonexistent. You give me hope and ideas. Thank you.

  180. Your kitchen is super cute! I especially LOVE the floor!!! My husband and I recently bought a “new” old house. All the floors have be stripped down to the original hardwood plank floors and I want to keep them sooo bad! They are sadly covered in nails, (somebody nailed the carpet to the hardwood) but I want to try and save them. Could you please let me know how you did yours? Thank you, Emily Kendall

  181. Wow.. Very nice blog.

    Here is very good information.
    Thanks! for sharing this post.

  182. I’m totally in awe of your kitchen makevoer!! I love, love, love farmhouse style. I live in an old farmhouse and really want to make some updates but fear starting – afraid it won’t come out the way I’d hoped or running into bigger issues. I LOVE that floor you found under all that linoleum!! That is GORGEOUS!!

  183. I love so many things about your kitchen and just pinned several images. Thanks for the inspiration!

  184. I love your new kitchen! We have a very small kitchen and I want to redo it. All the cabinets are a dark stained wood, as are all the trim too. It’s dark and boring. I want to paint them and also remove the doors off of some of them by the sink, for putting my dishes in. We also have some cast iron pans that I’d love to hang up, but no wall space. I plan to go through all the cabinets and get rid of the stuff we don’t use. And I want to move my spices away from the sink and away from the stove. My boyfriend said I can do whatever I want to the inside of the house, but questions why I want to do this or that. CALGON, TAKE ME AWAY! LOL. Anywats, I love that country feel of your kitchen. It’s what I want.

  185. I’ve seen some of your kitchen redo Angie but not all of it. Wowee – what a difference! I love how you used an old wood burning stove as a coffee center – too cool. So smart to divide the rooms with an antique window – love this idea.

  186. I love it! It’s awesome! You did a beautiful job!!! I like all of the reused materials. I want to study all the photos more closely. I’m in the process of remodeling one kitchen and also starting from scratch on a new kitchen somewhere else but I want it to look vintage (beginning with a 1948 Wards stove). I’m trying to reuse and do them both on a flea market budget, I’m not nearly as good at it as you are….I just love your kitchen!

  187. Angie – Your hard effort has paid off. Everything is so beautiful. Love the sun pouring into your kitchen.

    Mary @ Orphans With Makeup

  188. Awesome, I love the photos!

  189. Thank you for the wonderful farmhouse kitchen tour. It was so lovely! I love ever corner in your kitchen.

  190. One of the most enjoyable home tours I have seen. And as the new owner of an old farmhouse, I am so inspired!! Jealous of your old stove:) Keep up the great work.

  191. Just gorgeous. Lots of details and quite a collection you have there! Love the floors….

  192. Amazing Work…!!!

  193. This is by far the prettiest kitchen I have ever seen. I love every little detail. Great job and thanks for sharing.

    As I read your blog and looked at the pictures I was struck that not more then 3 feet away from me I had an undervalued treasure! It is an old ruler in bright pink. One side says “Study to show thyself approved unto God: –II Timothy 2:15. The other side lists all the books of the Bible, old and new testaments. It is nicked and scuffed enough to just add interest. I will hang it in my kitchen pantry now. Thanks for the idea to display it. Actually the edges are too “rough” from years of wear to be a good measuring tool.

  195. Love the kitchen! Is the sink top one big piece with sinks bowls and drain boards on both sides??? I have a metal cabinet with the sink I described in basement collecting dust. Never thought to take it off yucky cabinet.

    Hello! I am IN LOVE with your kitchen! My husband and I just moved into an old farmhouse and are always looking for new ideas on how to decorate. Right now we are trying to figure out how to make a rustic milk strainer into a light above our kitchen sink. I really like how yours is hung! Would your husband be able to give me a step-by-step tutorial on how to do it?

    I greatly appreciate any insight on this! Thank you!

    Amy Jo

  197. Love your kitchen, As a very tiny farmhouse owner I also use every inch of wall space. I do like the quirks and nooks and crannies in old farm homes. Your kitchen is so sweet and very welcoming.

  198. You may have already answered this above…what do you use those super skinny cupboards for next to the sink base?
