The Kitchen

Let's start the farmhouse tour in the kitchen. The heart of the home, the place I'll live life and drink coffee. The kitchen was renovated in 2001, which is a great relief to me, I'll have modern conveniences. The owners did a fabulous job, but someday I'm going to need to replace the back splash tile and tear off the wallpaper, it's a bit too modern for me. This is the little work sink, it sits on the far wall of the kitchen.

On the opposite side is the big sink, you can look through to the dining room while rinsing the dishes off to put in the dishwasher.
The entrance to the dining room is to the left. The basement and side exit door is to the left...look at the Jayhawk.
Back to the work sink area, check out the ceiling, you can see the where the stairs cut through the very corner of the kitchen.
I'm missing a photo of the bar and cook top area. These pictures make it look much bigger than it actually is, remember it's a 130 year old house and they didn't change the floor plan when they renovated. They did use every available spot to place the cabinets and counters and I was so impressed with the details. But, that tile....it's gotta go.

Re: the backsplash tiles. I think it's really nice of you to buy some old blinde person's house. I'm KIDDING! But, yeah, umm, I agree. In time...it's gotta go.

Welcome to the old house family.

The backsplash is ugly. And so is the Jayhawk. But you can't have everything.

Seriously, the place is beautiful. Congratulations.

I live in an old farm house -- my stairs cut through the corner of my kitchen too -- only more so.

Those cupboards are DARK. I moved and decided go with LIGHT cupboards this time around. Too dark in the small kitchen -- and I about went batty during the winter. Just sat on the floor and sobbed... often... Well -- not really -- but I sure WANTED TO!!

Thanks for the look see -- NEAT kitchen!!
