Ashley describes her lake house's kitchen as a "Knotty Pine Convention" fit only for lumberjacks. The '70s yellow counters weren't helping the cause. What she really wanted was an open farmhouse vibe, without replacing the existing cabinets entirely. Here's what it looks like now:
The upper cabinets and island came out, and the walls got the beadboard treatment, customized open shelving, and a few coats of Behr Snow Fall to brighten it up. The lower cabinets were painted to match.
Gone is the yellow formica, replaced with black granite for durability's sake. Also, so long old sink, fixtures, and appliances, and hello to a farmhouse sink, vintage-inspired faucet, and GE appliances with a retro feel.
Replacing the built-in island is a freestanding iron and marble one that keeps the space feeling open yet defined.
