So this is the BEFORE picture of the 1940’s kitchen. The stove was a button stove with a chicken roaster that was pretty cool on the left of the oven. It was hot wired in the wall and set off fire alarms! Scary!!! After Josie jumped through my screen door going after critters, a handful of times,we decided we weren’t going to replace the screen any more. We found this old Dutch door on Craigslist and refinished it.
I won this slab of quartz when I spun the wheel at a home and garden show! Score! I could NOT afford fancy counters all over, but I have it as an accent on my drink area and I also use it to roll pie doughs and cookies to keep a cool surface.
So we opened up the arch and used old barn lumbar to open up the area. We planked the ceiling. Made open shelving to keep the galley kitchen larger. The table was bought at Marshalls and it was dark brown. I just sanded it & painted it with milk paint. The chair was an antique brown chair and I wanted it to match my anthro plate. 🙂 The flowers are free from the garden here at Corner Cottage!
Josie loves hanging out in the kitchen and waiting for something to be cooked!
My kitchen ceiling lights are mouth blown & made in West Virginia.

I was born in the 70’s and raised in the 80’s so I LOVE wallpaper. It gives me warm fuzzies and reminds me of my childhood. I wallpapered 1 wall in the kitchen that leads to the dining room.
I am married to my best friend, a fur mom of 2 naughty terriers, and a Southern transplant to the Pacific NW. Money doesnt stretch as far up here to buy a dream home, thats for sure! With a little open mindness and a lot of DIY projects, we purchased a 90 year old home and are tackling it room by room. We truly have poured our heart into every project in this home. It‘s located in the beat of the city & within walking distance to coffee shops, a farmers market and some great interior design shops! At the end of a vibrant street, we are the Corner Cottage. Come look inside!
