Love this kitchen and the 150 year old antique wood countertops

  1. You have so many beautiful pieces in your home. I love the way you were able to mix and match, without over powering the space. I also love how you took something old and simple, I.e. the door, and made it work in the space, as well as made it a useful piece. Good job, and very creative. Thanks fr sharing.
