The fixture is a rewired antique. I found it at Let There Be Light Antiques in Stillwater, MN. The owner was very helpful. The cost was comparable or slightly less than buying a fixture at Rejuvenation Hardware or School House Electric. Those are two other sources to try if you like the look and don't want to go the antique route. Best of luck!

The wall color is a custom color similar to Hirschfield's indulgence with some added blue.

Love your kitchen and these photos have been our inspiration pics for our kitchen remodel. Could u provide more info on the countertops? How have they held up, any staining, scratches? And where does one source soapstone? Is it available at the same stone yards where one would purchase granite or marble? Thanks so much for your help. You did a wonderful job.

When we first installed the countertops, we had to be quite careful about leaving water or wet items on the countertop to avoid spots or water rings. I oiled the countertops about 5-6 times. Since then, I started using Seventh Generation dishwashing soap which is coconut oil based. It keeps the countertops in great shape with daily wiping. They are not quite as dark and shiny as they would be with oiling (which I actually prefer) but I don't have to worry about stains or water spots.

The countertops do have the odd nick or scratch, but very few. It doesn't bother me. I should add that not all soapstone is the same. My countertops have very little veining and are particularly hard. When I was shopping, I looked at some beautiful medium gray soapstone that I could write in with a fingernail. So, my advice is to shop around. If you don't like items with patina, I would go a different route. There are a few different types of granite that look somewhat like soapstone when honed.

Some granite retailers do sell it, but I found that they generally have very little to choose from. I purchased our slabs through Midwest Specialty Products in Shakopee, MN. They definitely had the best selection that I found in the Twin Cities. Best of luck!

Hirschfield's is a paint store chain in Minneapolis/St. Paul. It is their in-house brand. Best of luck with your project.

Thank you so much for this detailed info. Is there a reason you decided to mix hardware manufacturers? For example did you prefer the Horton Brasses bin pulls to the similar Schaub and Company ones?

The house was built in 1899. We had a few pulls that we believe were original in the butler's pantry. I have always liked them, and these were the most similar. Everything matches in finish very well in spite of the different manufacturers. Best of luck.

The wall color is a custom color similar to Hirschfield's indulgence with some added blue. The trim is Benjamin Moore white dove. The tile is the 2 x 6 subway tile from Subway Ceramics in Avalon white. Best of luck with your project.

It is a custom stain. Sorry, I don't know the exact brand and color. I can tell you that it is not full strength. They mixed one half the stain color with one half neutral to get the lighter color.
