Hi my friends. I’ve been anxious to share my basement farmhouse kitchen with you. You may have noticed the word (Glam) in parenthesis in the title.
Are you wondering, “What’s that all about?” Try as I might, I was not able to go with the simplistic style of a farmhouse. Although I love it, by using what I had I think I have achieved a mixture of both cottage and farmhouse. One of my blog friends, Fran, from The Bagg lady described my style as farmhouse glam. Just a word of warning, lots of pics.
I filled the kitchen full of things I love and have collected over the years.
I found these cute framed utensils to hang over the outside entry door at Deseret Book. Would be easy to make.
I knew that with a lot of glass cabinets that I needed to use mostly white or cream colored items on my open shelving. Other wise it could get awfully busy.
I did pretty good, with only a pop of color here and there.
I have a love for anything cherry themed. A lot of it is displayed in this tall seeded glass cupboard. The other day my hubby asked, “Where are the dishes we can use?” I told him that they all can be used. Just cause their on display doesn’t mean they can’t be useful.
I love this shelving over my fridge for showing off some of my vintage pitchers and tartan plaids.
I made a simple valance for the window and skirting to cover two of the lower cabinets. My friend, Amanda gave me the vintage crochet lace to add to the bottom of the curtain. I love it!
A while ago I showed you how I painted my Oak Hoosier White. She houses more of my collections.
I found the old green door for the pantry at the antique mall in Springville for $40. I bought the metal key holes at Star Mill for $4 ea. and painted them white. Sweet friends, Amanda gave me the crystal door knob and Joyce the upper window.
Assorted cherry artwork.
The cabinet guy left a huge space for my sink. It’s a whopping 33 inches. Everything I envisioned and described to him turned out just as I had imagined.
Right down to the the ‘grandma’ knick knack shelving framing the window.
Debated between stainless steel and white for the appliances. Stainless won out. Why? Because we were going to bring our fridge from upstairs down and buy a new one for up there. Well, it was a little too big and that didn’t happen.
Because there is so much going on I opted to keep the top of my seed keep island empty. At least for now. lol! It’s filled with farmhouse essentials.
The décor on My $35 Table redo is very simplistic . I made the runner from an old feed sack and placed this large primitive candle holder on top.
Last year I spied these two chairs at a consignment shop for $40 ea. I loved the cherry fabric on the seat. They were painted a creamy yellow color. I liked the color, but they had sealed them with a shiny varnish. I sanded them and painted them black with homemade chalk paint.
I have a rustic bench on one side. Thought I would add mismatched chairs on the other. Thinking I might look for another style of bench. Hate to block the view of my seed keep.
Here’s a couple of wide range views.
As much as I love everything in this kitchen, I still feel that the bead board ceiling and the barn wood look flooring are the ‘stars of the show’!
Can’t wait to hear what you think of my ‘Farmhouse Glam’!
I will be sharing with these fun parties:
