|My kitchen. Porcelain farmers sink, wood counters, & vintage pottery|
In the meantime, I've been juggling my time between my beautiful little girls, my cute hubby and Etsy. For some down time, I retreat to my kitchen. I remodeled my 1978 kitchen while I was pregnant with my 3rd daughter in 2009. (not recommended) We finished up the final details 2 days before she arrived. I still need to put knobs on 2 of the cabinets!

I decided to base my remodel design on the objects that inspire me, that make me smile and lift me up. Namely, vintage pottery. I love 1930's & 40's pottery. I believe it's possible I was a kiln in a former life. I can just imagine hugging all those beautiful Bauer, Garden City & Roseville pottery around me while heating up.

The ceilings were spray on. I really hated them. We tore down the long tube florescent lighting and covered up that ceiling with bead board. The linoleum was replaced with soft natural pine floors that we painted green. The lighting was replaced with retro lights from Rejuvenation. Found my O'Keefe & Merritt stove on Craigs List for a song. We used salvage materials as much as we could.

As I clean the rest of the kitchen I'll take more photos. It falls into disarray fairly often with 3 little girls. But at least it's inspiring! Muffins anyone?
