Farm House Kitchen Update!

By Therelishedroost
Thank goodness I can now get back to enjoying my kitchen! It was fine to begin with but was starting to look tired.  Mind you it was 15 years old and the glaze was wearing thin in many places, plus my four legged family members did a real number on the cypress 10 inch plank flooring!so after much thought, I kept the kitchen traditional but made it clean and neutral.  
Next reveal will be the Butler's pantry when I can get a hold of a great camera  for tight shots! Remember we love doing E-Design as well, just incase you have Kitchen conundrums you need a bit of assistance with!

The cabinets received a fresh coat of paint , Edgecombgray for the surround and Kendall Charcoal for the island and mud room, both paints are Benjamin Moore Advance.  Jacob at the TileBar has such a great selection that it made choosing the 3 x 12 clean edge subway tiles an easy choice for the backsplash.  I have alot of counter space so to cut down on cost I did Carrara Marble for exterior countertops and kept my butcher block for island but added a varnish to it for easy clean up.

I always wanted Iron clad windows but since that wasn't happening I did the next best thing, painted them dark! The window trim received Kendall Charcoal as well as the island.
I loved the range hood but didn't like the chunky stucco so I sanded and skim coated it with white spackle  and sealed with a matte sealer to make it look  like smooth neutral plaster.

Farm House Kitchen Update! The lighting was from Visual Comfort, Darlana lanterns for island and Flemish Linear for table. I was so excited to finally have lanterns over my island. I knew no glass because I wanted something I could clean easily .
Farm House Kitchen Update! The window bench seat was upholstered in Pindler indoor /outdoor fabric and the pillows were from Etsy done in Princess Pyne's Schumacher fabric. 
Farm House Kitchen Update! Hardware was Top Knobs German Bronze which has a dark burnished brass tone. The handles are 7 inch to give a more substantial feel. They are simple and clean.
