The kitchen at the farm was the last room to be completed. We wanted to add a half bath upstairs and needed access to the plumbing in the full bath which was located in the kitchen wall. Two years of delays looking at studs and lath finally ended this past January. We had torn out the ugly 70's paneling early on. Now it's been replaced with bead board. We painted the cabinets along with a completely new sink area and butcher block countertops. The McDougall hoosier was in storage for a year but now has the perfect spot. The kitchen is rather small but the hoosier's proportions are perfect. Unfortunately it's missing the containers for flour and sugar and the top drawer has a huge piece missing on the corner so my friend gave us a great deal on it. Hoosiers came in many configurations and this one has a beautiful tambour door. Originally a corner banquet took up that space with a trestle table which we removed to make a bit more room. The little Maple drop leaf table was a nice find from a fellow vender at our local antique shop. Not sure if it's that old or not but it's just what I was looking for. In nice weather you can sit with the back door open and enjoy the view of the pond with your morning coffee.
