"What's Your Style?" Series - Kitchen Edition

Hey there! Welcome back for the second part of the "What's Your Style?" Series!!! Over the next two days we will be taking you on a tour of our kitchens! If you're visiting from Eclectically Vintage then welcome! I'm so glad you're here. Our kitchen is probably my favorite room in our house so I can't wait to share it with you today!

Before I get started I also want to mention we are having an amazing HomeRight Giveaway!!! And the best part? There will be TWO winners!!! One winner will receive a HomeRight SteamMachine and another winner will receive a HomeRight FinishMax!!! So exciting! Look for the Rafflecopter widget at the end of this post to enter!

Now onto the kitchen!!!!!

We completed our kitchen makeover last summer and it was a project that was a long time coming. We worked on it slowly over the course of two and a half years and it came together exactly how I was hoping it would!!

I knew from the beginning I wanted lots of white!! To me, white and wood tones just compliment each other so well! My goal was to make it look like the perfect farmhouse kitchen. With a limited budget and a little creativity, I think we pulled it off quite well! 

We added bead board wallpaper and trim to the fronts of the flat faced cabinets for some dimension and character. We made the wood countertop ourselves by using 2 - 2 x 10 boards and 1 - 2 x 8 board.

If you missed the tour last month of our living rooms, I mentioned that I'm a sucker for collections.....I have a lot of them. Things appeal to me in multiples grouped together. Some of my collections are a little quirky like these whisk brooms, but that's what makes collecting so much fun - discovering what speaks to you. 

I wanted a rustic edge to the kitchen so we brought in lots of wood like these barn wood shelves and the cabinet my husband built out of pallets.

Since storage is limited to the small amount of kitchen cabinets, we tried to be creative with other storage solutions like the pallet cabinets and adding shelves to an old door. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really hoped you enjoyed the tour of my little farmhouse kitchen! Please be sure to stop over and see Michelle from Iron and Twine!! And don't forget to enter the HomeRight Giveaway before you go!! 

Here is the schedule for the entire tour so you don't miss a single kitchen!

  6. Gorgeous Melissa! Sharing on my FB page today ;)

  7. I'm in love! Those scales - those whisk brooms! Love your whimsical style!

  10. You've done such a beautiful job - love all of the attention to detail, all of that awesome ironstone! SO much charm, Melissa!

  11. Love love love seeing your pretty kitchen. You did an amazing job. Love every part of this kitchen.

  12. Melissa,
    I always love viewing your charming kitchen. You did such a wonderful job in there and I still love how you made your countertops.


  13. I love your kitchen!!! It is very similar in size, and storage. My house was built in 1917, so our kitchen is very small. I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to do, had some of the same ideas as yours, others different. Ours is a old farmhouse also. I may be borrowing a couple of your ideas, to finish off mine. LOVE!!! Thank you for sharing!!!

  14. I've been wanting to paint our terracotta kitchen walls a neutral color, but I was afraid it would look too boring. After viewing your charming kitchen in white with all your weathered wood accents, I'm totally inspired! I just love what you've done! Who knew those little wisk brooms could look so artsy?!

  15. I so adore your kitchen! I've been stalking you on Pinterest... I can't tell you how much I adore whatever you pin! You are most definitely one to follow.... thank-you for the amazing eye candy I always seem to find near you!


Thanks for your lovely comments! I read and enjoy every single one and try my hardest to respond to them all! Thanks for visiting!
