Everything is Benjamin Moore oil finish in satin. It's beautiful and hardy.

Hi Tammy,
The homeowner supplied this fixture but reproductions of this sort can be found from many major manufacturers. Do a search on 'foyer lights' for best results.

This appears to be a wider beadboard than standard. I.e. 2 - 3" wide between beads. Where was it purchased?

This is a standard offering at our local lumberyard - the spacing is 2", but it comes in several sizes. This is a plywood paneling type as opposed to individual 6" T&G boards. Check your local specialty lumberyard (not a Big Box store) for more options.

Diyher, I seem to be following you around lol. Looking at beadboard back splashes this time.

:) forgot I posted this last year. Since then someone told me that planks were better. I put T&G bead boards on the one side of my kitchen island. The pieces left over are the perfect height for me to also use it as a backsplash for under one of my wall cabinets to our new cabinet cabinet that I will be painting. I plan to make them look like a hutch similar to above but probably with glass doors. I just don't know yet which corbels under the cabinets to use :)) I too at one point thought about beadboard as backsplash around all the cabinets, still leaving that option open, so ya never know :))

Is the countertop marble?

Yes, this is marble - it's a light version of Imperial Danby, honed.

While I don't generally recommend marble countertops for a kitchen, it's OK in a lightly-used area like this wet bar.

Thank you for your kind replies. I hope to do some soapstone (island top) but will need a coordinating material for the remainder of the countertops. Any suggestions?

we are looking to build a similar space, can you tell me what the dimensions are and countertop depths. I am particularly interested in the amount of floor space as this is exactly what I am looking for. Very beautiful work. Thank you

Because this is in a fairly narrow walkway between the formal dining room and the kitchen (the aisle is only about 3 feet wide), the base cabinets are made at 21" deep, but they are still kitchen height, finishing at 36".

The area used to be an old butler's pantry with small, low countertops that were fairly useless. Now the homeowners use the space all the time for entertaining - we added the bar sink and they set up all the liquor and hors d'oeuvres here and use it as a serving station. The dark area on the bottom left is a wine refrigerator, the cabinets there are standard depth (24") to accommodate the appliance.

Please note that due to the shallow cabinets, the faucet is offset - placed on an angle to the side of the sink instead of in the back.

Thank you for the compliments and best of luck with your project!

Amy, Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question. I am looking to build a butler pantry/service area that would only have a 3 foot wide opening and 18-20 inch cabinets with the exception of the bottom left also (which will hold fridge drawers for me) this is perfect! I think it looks amazing (nice work) and is functional even though small. Thanks so much again!

Where can i have a round cutting board made? to fit a small round sink

Artisan Kitchens LLC
This particular board was an accessory offered with the sink; some companies like Blanco and Franke do offer these boards which are made to specially fit their own products, so you could try checking into that first.

Other than that you could possibly try here: they have made custom sized ones for me before, I don't know if they'll do it for everyone though.

Hope that was helpful, have a great day!

Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Great Space: The Butler's Pantry
I could imagine this butler's pantry being off a mudroom before you enter the kitchen. I love the vintage quality of this space; you could almost mistake it for a small farmhouse kitchen, but then there's a beverage refrigerator and wine cubby and bar sink.
