We used wood from an old barn. I put a coat of clear laquer so that it would clean up easily. Then added vegetable handles.
I used silver patterned tin for the wall above the cabinets as well as the back splash to bring more light into the room. Here is something you might help me with....I am thinking about changing the light above the table to a crystal chandelier. I like mixing rustic and formal. What do you think?
For a pantry I already had some 12" deep white bookshelves from my old house that would fit perfectly along one of the empty walls of my new kitchen. So I had a cabinet maker come out and measure for some doors. I anchored the bookshelves to the wall painted the doors to match and I have a pantry I can find things in.
I love love love cooking with gas. When I found this stove on craigslist I snatched it right up knowing it was a perfect fit for my kitchen with stainless steel and copper accents. (Finding this stove was a God thing because I live way out in the country and the people I bought it from were only 10 minutes away. Nothing is to small for God in giving us the desires of our hearts!!)
