[ farmhouse fabulous ]

DON'T YOU just love makeover stories? I came across this pretty makeover of an 1865 farmhouse kitchen and while it had a lot of charming features, it felt dated, the layout wasn't very functional and it lacked modern conveniences.

Painting out the original windows and woodwork really lightened up the space, along with the new layout of pale dove grey cabinetry...

While some people may have been inclined to keep what was originally there or simply paint the cabinets, sometimes function overrules and you realize that it just isn't working. The style of the new cabinets works nicely and I love the lightness of this kitchen now. And it's just another example of why it's ok to paint original woodwork ~ look at how gorgeous that window looks now.

Gorgeous! I love how bright it is, and in now way did it lose any of it's original character or charm!
