California Cottage Comfort eclectic-kitchen

California Cottage Comfort

I have a tiny 1912 Craftsman cottage kitchen, so this cupboard is right outside the kitchen and I keep my every day dishes in it.

This photo has one question

Do you have any photos of your kitchen? - I'm trying to remodel a 1924 craftsman cottage kitchen. The previous owner gutted the kitchen in to prep for a remodel, but I guess ran out of money. All I have in there is a lovely farmhouse sink and a beautiful antique stove. I want to as true to original as possible (within my small budget). I would love to see some example of an original craftsman kitchen to get some ideas.

I will try to post some soon, but mine is not all original. It seems like my cabinets are from the 30s or 40s. I redid my counter tops a few years back with solid black honed granite with a three inch face. It looks like soapstone for a fourth of the price and granite is much more durable than soapstone. In case you haven't heard of honed granite, it means that it didn't get the final polish... It's a bit dull on the surface. The black has to be kept very clean, but it looks awesome.

look for the book "Bungalow Kitchens" by Jane Powell on Amazon. Everything you need to know and more about 20's kitchens.
