I never really made a proper post about how we finished the renovation in the countryside kitchen,
which we started fixing it up a little over a year ago. Well mainly because there was always something small left to do (and still is)...
I was used with renovations in flats, - having done a couple before- that take a few weeks up to a month max two and didn't really realise that renovating a (old) house takes so much more time... Our kitchen was ready a little before summer, but as we did lots of other things too we finished up some details as late as August. Or, as I've said before, few thing are ever really ready in an old house.
Since the house is from the late twenties we wanted the style to be somewhat that, although still look kind of timeless. And as this is a farm house it could indeed look like a farm house kitchen, full of stuff, but then again I did not want it to be too "countryside romantic", shabby chic or so...
We originally intended to paint the floor with checks in grey and white, but as the hallway also got such a painted floor it would have sen too much (phew! And it saved us a lot of work.)
same kind of cart that I have in our bedroom in the city in mint green; Råskog from ikea. I think many things easily get lost in deep cupboards. But not when you keep it on wheels! Muahahaha.
Pretty much everything was custom built in, or ordered for the kitchen. In some cases that can get rather expensive, but then again the solution with less fixed cabinets and pieces also meant less material and thus tured out to be quite economical. And in some cases custom made by a carpenter or handyman isn't necessarily more expensive at all, like with the piece we had made in the kitchen in the city, or here with the stove and shelves, for example.
The cabinets we have are from Juvi, they're all wood and painted with linseed oil paint.
I made some faux-roman blinds for the windows. I wouldn't really ever close the curtains anyway.
And in usual manner it is full of small hands and cats.
