    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.

      It looks great Mike! I love that Scottie dog cookie jar on the countertop too.

      Thanks Scott...Fiona knows her treats are in that puppy. So when I take her there she has something to look forward to. Hoping she'll adjust well when it comes time to move with a bit of positive reinforcement.

      I like the way you installed the glass shelf over the sink - lovely without blocking the light. The entire job looks great (I almost called it an ‘update’ but what do you call it when the look goes < back < in time? )
      Nice cookie jar for the dog treats!

      Thanks Watchsearcher....the new faucet was too tall to keep the original wood shelf. I had the piece of tempered glass left over from and old 70's chrome shelf unit. It was a bit too short. I went to the DIY and picked up four antique bronze handrail supports and they allowed me to float the glass perfectly without blocking the light. Retro Chic !

      Had the same drop leaf table but mine was maple ..nice job on the kitchen..'-)

      Thanks for the "love" LazyBoy and the compliment. This one could be maple as well. Never been very good a wood ID's. There was actually one left in the house's basement but the legs had water damage and split. Much more cost effective to buy another than to try and restore that one. :)

      Very fitting room and decor.
      Have you still got your Scotty, Mike?

      Hi Mitzi passed at 14 just before Christmas in 2018. My new little girl Fiona here was a gift from my sister for working on the house. Plus she knew how much I missed my Mitzi. Fiona's 2 1/2 we got her from a kennel in Michigan when she was 11 months old. Scotties are wonderful dogs and not so common anymore. Long waiting lists when you do but we got lucky. She's so sweet. When they're not show quality because of some defect they are sold as companion dogs. Fee's tail kept her out of the ring. Its curved and not upright enough for show.

      Hey fort...thanks for the "love" !

      mikelv85, I'm inclined to think that LazyBoy is on to something about the type of wood in your drop-leaf table. The lack of knots as seen in your pictures suggest a type of wood other than pine.

      Love that sink with the tile backsplash.

      compliments I would like working and cooking there

      Thanks for the "love" and compliments kivatinitz. Don't have a range yet but we're probably going with an electric induction/air fryer model. The original was propane.

      mikelv85, I took another look at the drop leaf table in your first picture, and noticed a smallish imperfection like a streak in the top.

      I latterly realized that it looked very much like the streaks in my own vintage drop leaf table -- which is pine -- so yours could also be pine. Not all pine lumber has knots.

      I love what you did with this one, I totally agree that the older the better.

      I got a 1952 O'Keeffe & Merrick w/grillevator stove - different era but it is a nice one - used it at my California place but this Oregon one doesn't have the gas hook-up, so it is in my shed at the moment, if you want to talk.
