Create Cozy Gathering Spots in Farmhouse Kitchen
When we designed our farmhouse, we wanted the kitchen to be the heart of our home. A place to gather.
Therefore, we built a 6 x 7-foot kitchen island using industrial materials and vintage furniture.
The sideboard was a rescued piece of furniture that I had refinished for my previous home.
The combination of traditional furniture pieces and industrial pipe for a one-of-a-kind farmhouse island.
Although the wooden island top is new, I used a technique to make it look like reclaimed barn wood.
Warm Wood Tones mixed with paint
I left the natural wood tones on the front of the sideboard & painted the rest. The color continues to change.
The Kitchen Island is the heart of the Farmhouse
Now regardless of the occasion, everyone gathers around the kitchen island.
