Description: Vintage Kitchen Remodel

What a gem! Vintage remodels take longer than in newer homes, and sometimes the surprises are, well, surprising! But the results are well worth it. 

Under the old wallpaper, we discovered the original floor-to-ceiling wainscoting. It was worth saving, I mean, it’s original! The stove is new (a reproduction), the new countertops are zinc, which were aged with acid. 

The work on this project was done by my favorite contractor. He also made the custom tea/coffee caddie to the right of the stove. I designed it, and he built it to my specifications. For more information on the dish rack, I wrote about it here

With so many changes, it’s hard to believe this is the same kitchen! 

The corner cabinet (on the stove side) originally held the hot water tank, which was removed from the kitchen during the remodel, and replaced with an exterior on-demand water heater.  With the corner cabinet empty, I was able to capitalize on that space for appliance storage. 

Often, leaving some of the quirky elements in vintage homes insures the personality (and history) of the home isn't totally removed.
