Cottage Kitchen Makeover


                                                                             Hello everyone,

                                                   I know I am late sharing our cottage kitchen makeover
                                                   but better late then never....I hope.
                                                     I love this big window that we put in this spring
                                                   as it lets in so much more light and gives a nice view of
                                                   the garden and hills beyond.
                                                           The cast iron sink was one I found on Kijiji, the cupboard
                                                     with the glass doors came from the Restore and got a couple
                                                   of coats of white paint.The cupboard below it was a gift from
                                                   a friend of my daughters.We realigned the cupboards and added
                                                   the new countertop.We painted everthing in the whole cottage
                                                   white as you can see from the photo below there was a lot of
                                                   brown before.
                                                         I made the curtains from a bedsheet. As you probably have
                                                     noticed our theme is blue and white so the cupboard here holds
                                                    my pretty blue and white china. 

                                                   We put in this island that was also a gift
                                                   from my daughters friend complete with
                                                   a Jenn Air propane stovetop.
                                                          The stools came from the 70 mile
                                                   coastal yard sale a couple of years ago and I
                                                  painted them a grey blue as well as the island.
                                                     We also installed the greyish hardwood click
                                                   floor which made a huge difference as you can see
                                                   from above it only had a subfloor.
                                                           We have a very open floor plan so
                                                            this little shelf from the thrift
                                                           store holds more of my china.
                                                    We just built this cupboard a couple
                                                     of weeks ago using an old french door
                                                     from a yard sale and of course everything
                                                     got a fresh coat of white paint.
                                             Looking toward the kitchen cupboard
                                                        I put the handmade lighthouse cross stitch
                                                        pictures on the side of our new cupboard with
                                                       the french door. I was excited to find those at
                                                       a local thrift shop as well.
                                                            Just realized I should have shared the pantry
                                                        cupboards on the other side of the kitchen so
                                                        I will do that another day.
                                                            I love that our little cottage has lots of storage
                                                        space and lots of work surface too.

Relax and enjoy yourself !

We are still having fun putting our mark
on our little seaside cottage but our
work comes in little waves as we want
to enjoy some relaxation too!
I must admit I will be a little sad when
we have to close up our cottage for the winter
with just an occasional visit to check on
things and enjoy a thermos of tea.

Thanks for visiting!
