I've been working hard on our kitchen.

First, I stained everything with a grey wash; it looks SO awesome.

Then I replaced all of the drawer pulls with vintage-look pulls. I've always wanted those and now I have them :)

Third I added bun feet to make the cabinets look more custom - it definintely helped.

Now I am in the middle of adding beadboard to all of the outside panels and to wrap the whole kitchen island. It is a multiple step process: cutting the boards to fit, then adhering with Gorilla wood clue and finishing nails, and finally staining the boards.

Final steps include a new kitchen counter (most likely in granite), most likely a new sink (looking at farmhouse/apron sink models), lighting over the island and maybe a tile backsplash (not sure yet).

I just bought these vintage look barstools off of

$67 for BOTH and FREE shipping. Can't wait til they arrive later this week.


  1. The bun feet is just pure brilliance!

    I can't wait to hear more about the chalkboard-ness. COOL!

    And those stools? AMAZING deal!

  2. Looks great! Where did you get the grey wash? Was it difficult to do?

  3. I would like to know that too! What brand did you use/How did you make the grey wash?
